What is comprehensive?



What is comprehensive?

The financial term of the day is: "comprehensive."
Your car can get wrecked in a crash, but there are plenty of other bad things that can happen to it. You could lose it to theft, or it could get ruined in a flood or hurricane or be bashed by a rampaging deer. All of those kinds of things are covered under the comprehensive portion of your car insurance, which covers damage or loss not caused by accidents.

That beautiful car in your driveway faces lots of threats besides crashes. The comprehensive coverage in your car insurance will protect it from theft, natural disasters and even animals.
