Be Aware Of The Pitfalls Of Auto Insurance!

Sep 12, 2008
Buying a car, and buying auto insurance go hand in hand. You can't legally have one without the other! When purchasing insurance, we go over our policy, checking for monthly price, co pay, all of the things we think will be required to cover us should something bad happen. We want to walk away feeling confident in our protection.

People generally think well about others. This is also true when a person buys something like an insurance policy. When a person buys a policy for his car he does not give much thought to the pitfalls of car insurance. He feels that with the various kinds of coverage he has he is not likely to face any problem or have any trouble.

Some people buy car insurance as it is required by law. What people generally do is they log on to the internet and obtain cheap car insurance quote. They compare these quotes and buy a cheap car insurance policy for themselves. They do not go into the details and just remain ignorant about the vital aspects of their insurance policy.

You must read the fine print when purchasing auto insurance! That great premium you recieve a quote for might be hiding sub standard care in the case of an accident! There is a great chance that the small amount you save on your premium offers much less coverage and hence much less return in the event of a problem.

Many car insurance companies offer incentives such as road side assistance and free rental cars. You may one day be shocked to find out after an accident that the road side assistance your offered can sometimes come at a high premium! Make sure to read the fine print to see exactly what's covered, don't be stuck on the side of the road distressed with nowhere to go!

Similarly free rentals are provided for specific time period only and when buying the car insurance, people do not look into these details. Suppose the insurance company gives free rentals only for 10 days and a person does not get his car back from the repair shop till 20 days then he has to shell out the money for the next 10 days from his pocket.

When a person insures his car he does not get insurance cover for any valuable items he has in his car. A person has loads of cash or some very expensive item in his car. The car gets stolen and the item inside the car also is lost. The insurance provider will let the car owner file a claim only to the extent of the car value. He cannot claim for the objects or cash he had in his car and which he lost. This is true in case your sound system, mobile phone, briefcase etc is stolen from your car.

Remember, you get what you pay for. When purchasing auto insurance, always ask questions! Who is covered to drive my car under this policy, what exactly is covered in case of accident? Always always remember to read the fine print! It can mean the difference between a horrible nightmare, or a minor inconvenience when involved in an accident.
