Comprehensive - Including Fire & Theft - Optional Coverage

This coverage helps pay to repair or replace your vehicle if it’s damaged by an event other than a collision. Examples include fire, theft, earthquake, explosion, glass breakage, riot, vandalism, and windstorm.

This coverage pays either the actual value of your vehicle or the cost to repair, whichever is less and is subject to your chosen deductible.

 

Collision - Optional Coverage

This coverage provides protection if your vehicle is damaged or considered a total loss due to a collision. For example, if you rear-end another car, hit a tree or fence, or another car runs into yours. Collision coverage comes with a deductible, which is the amount you pay before your coverage helps pay for your claim.

This coverage pays either the actual value of your vehicle or the cost to repair, whichever is less.
