What is a Comprehensive Coverage Deductible?

If you opt into comprehensive insurance coverage, you will need to choose a deductible. What is a comprehensive coverage deductible? It is a set amount of money you would need to pay out of pocket toward a covered claim in Georgetown. For example, if you have a $500 deductible and your repair cost is $3,000, you would pay the $500 deductible and your insurance company would cover the remaining $2,500.

Should I Get Comprehensive Insurance Coverage?

When determining whether the added monthly costs of comprehensive insurance coverage is worth it, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is it required by your lender? When financing a car with an auto loan, some lenders might require you to have comprehensive insurance coverage until you pay off the loan.
  • What is your car’s value? Get an estimate of what your car is currently worth. If your vehicle were lost, stolen, or damaged, could you afford to pay that amount to replace or repair it? If you wouldn’t be able to afford much out of pocket, comprehensive coverage might be worth having.
  • How much is the annual premium? Take the amount you would pay over the course of one year for comprehensive insurance coverage, and multiply that number by 10. If your vehicle is worth less than that number, then comprehensive coverage might not be a good investment.
