What Is comprehensive auto insurance?
Comprehensive auto insurance is a type of insurance that covers your car during accidents that do not involve other drivers. There is still typically a deductible but at least your car would still be covered if it is damaged in the event of a fire, vandalism, or some other type of disaster.
The recent television commercials from All-State, where an actor plays the part of mayhem, are examples of these types of incidents. Comprehensive auto insurance will cover you in the event of mayhem so it should be considered.
Comprehensive auto insurance is also typically a requirement on most leased cars, and is essential if you own an expensive car.
