Optional Auto Insurance Coverage in Milton
Previously, we have discussed the mandatory auto insurance coverages which includes DCPD, Uninsured automobile insurance, third part liability and accident benefits. Every driver must have these coverages in Milton and all of Ontario.
There are many optional endorsements which can be added and several additional coverage options. By far, the two most important optional auto insurance coverages are collision and comprehensive coverage.
Collision covers your vehicle in the event that the accident is your fault. Example: You rear-end the car in front of you and damage their rear bumper. Your vehicle also sustains damage to your front. This is an at-fault accident and without collision coverage, you will need to pay out of your pocket for your repairs. The third-party will be covered under their own insurance policy.
Comprehensive auto insurance coverage covers your vehicle in the event that the incident is caused by something other than a vehicle. Examples include a tree falling on your car or someone stealing your vehicle.
Both coverage options are very important and can be costly if your vehicle is new. Be sure to speak to your insurance company and inquire about pricing.
