Enhance Your Car Insurance Coverage With Additional Coverage Options

April 29, 2011

You already protect yourself, your vehicle and passengers with your state’s required car insurance coverage. However, what if you’re stranded, need a rental car or require other services not offered by your minimum insurance policy? The following are just some of the additional car insurance coverage options you can purchase for added protection and convenience.

Roadside Assistance Insurance – Whether your car has a flat tire, the battery needs a jump or you require another form of vehicle help, Roadside Assistance provides you with a vehicle service company that is available to assist. Having this car insurance coverage can help you avoid the need for towing and labor coverage, too.  

Rental Car Reimbursement If your car is damaged or not working properly and is in the shop for repairs, you most likely will need another car to get around. Rental Car Reimbursement coverage reimburses you up to your predetermined limit for the costs associated with renting a car.

Towing and Labor – If your vehicle becomes disabled and requires towing, this car insurance coverage will reimburse you for associated expenses. Costs associated with labor will be covered if the work is performed by the same repair shop to which the vehicle was towed. 

Medical Payments – This car insurance coverage pays for medical and/or funeral expenses for any of your passengers after an accident up to the selected limit. This policy also covers you or an immediate family member who is injured in an accident as a pedestrian.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Regardless of fault in an accident, PIP insurance is a package that covers costs related to medical and hospital expenses, loss of wages, funeral expenses and rehabilitation costs. This policy can be applied to you, your immediate family members and non-related passengers. If you or a family member is injured as a pedestrian in an accident, this car insurance coverage can be used to cover expenses related to those injuries.
