Cheap Car Insurance


 Cheap Car Insurance

There are many reasons why people may need to get car insurance. For some, it is required by law in order to lawfully drive a vehicle. Others may want protection against legal liabilities that could arise from collisions with other vehicles or property damage incurred during their driving time, while others still opt for insurance as a safety precaution against damages and theft of personal possessions within their vehicle. There are many types of auto insurance available, with some being more appropriate than others depending on individual needs.

There are several types of car insurance available for drivers. The simplest form is liability insurance, which protects against legal liability resulting from an accident with another vehicle or property damage. Collision and comprehensive insurance protect against loss or damage to a vehicle from accidents when the policyholder is at fault, but not if the driver was not at fault. Other options include medical payments coverage to cover medical bills for policyholder and passengers in a crash, uninsured motorist coverage to protect against drivers without adequate coverage, and emergency road service coverage to help get a car fixed after an accident.

A home owner's insurance policy is usually more comprehensive than a standard policy and can provide coverage for things such as fire damage, theft, vandalism, and damage to contents within the home. This type of coverage is also available for recreational vehicles. A vehicle owner's policy provides basic liability and collision protection, but it usually doesn't cover loss or damage to vehicles from accidents with other vehicles or property damage caused by an accident. In addition to comprehensive and collision insurance coverage, vehicle insurance policies usually include medical payments coverage which helps pay for medical expenses incurred in an accident that were not caused by the driver of the vehicle being covered under their policy. Some policies also provide coverage for uninsured motorists. A car insurance premium is the amount paid to get the coverage outlined in a policy.

A deductible, or a copayment, is an expense that you pay before your insurance company pays for a covered loss. Deductibles can apply to claims and premiums. You may pay a $500 deductible on your medical insurance policy, but you will be covered for everything until you reach that level of out-of-pocket expenses. Your health insurer will cover the rest up to the amount specified in your health plan coverage terms.

The higher your deductible, the lower your premium will be, and vice versa. If you have a $500 deductible on your health plan, but have a $10,000 annual medical spending limit, then your insurance company will only pay for those amounts over which your deductible is met. If you also have an annual out-of-pocket maximum of $2,000, then your insurance company will pay the full cost up to the maximum point.

If you don't meet the minimum deductible level for your insurance plan, you may not be covered for emergency medical care or other expenses in an emergency. Your insurance company may also cancel your coverage if you haven't met the deductible. Check with your insurer to see if there are any restrictions.

Car insurance is often required by state law and is usually offered through a state managed fund. Most insurances cover emergency home, health and car repairs, medical costs for injuries sustained in an accident, and legal cover for damage caused to other people/car or property either accidentally or otherwise.

In Australia, car insurance is required by law and must be placed within the first 30 days of owning a vehicle in order to pass registration requirements for a car license plate number. As a result, the government has worked with the insurance industry to create the "Green Slip" system. The Green Slip is a compulsory, third party fire and theft policy that allows the vehicle owner to register their vehicle. Similar to other countries such as New Zealand, Europe and Canada, car insurance in Australia is based on two types of cover - Third Party Fire & Theft (TPFT) and Third Party Property Damage (TPPD). Third Party Fire & Theft All insurance covers cash value of the vehicle either at the moment of Loss or at a pre-determined value. Cash value is the difference between the purchase price and what the vehicle is worth today. An example for a car with a $40,000 cash value would be $20,000. Third Party Property Damage Property Damage insurance only covers loss of taxable value resulting in damage or destruction to insured property. An example for a home valued at $400,000 would be $300,000 used to calculate replacement cost and insurance cover on buildings and contents against fire and theft.

It is possible for a car insurance policy to include cover for non-owned vehicles that may be insured under the same policy. For example, there may be a clause which covers "any motor vehicle with your permission or in any manner used by any person whilst driving the property insured". Such use may include rental vehicles and/or chauffeur driven cars. The normal limitations of cover such as maximum limit per incident and annual aggregate still apply. However, Third Party Fire & Theft Policy does not apply to non-owned vehicle whilst it is being made available for the public or after damage has occurred.

Most private passenger policies cover cars owned or used by an insured driver (subject to the terms of the policy).

Personal car insurance is often used by people who own and drive a full-time private car, but want to take advantage of public transport in towns or cities. For example, it is common for a person who does not have access to a motor vehicle to purchase a policy while they are travelling for work. Many people have such policies with public liability cover that allows them to drive their vehicles across borders to temporarily use more convenient forms of transport.

An extended warranty can be purchased as an addition to the regular insurance cover offered by most insurers and provides additional coverage beyond the terms of standard insurance policies designed for cars that are under warranty.
