- What policy terms are available?
- Am I covered when driving a rental car?
- Am I covered if my car is in a flood?
- Do I have coverage when pulling a U-Haul trailer?
- Is a new car covered when I drive it off the dealer lot?
- Does my policy cover me when driving someone else's vehicle?

Three good reasons to insure your Jeep Compass
Even though Honolulu Compass insurance rates can get expensive, maintaining insurance is required for several reasons.
First, most states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry a minimum amount of liability insurance coverage in order to license the vehicle. In Hawaii these limits are 20/40/10 which means you must have $20,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $40,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
Second, if you took out a loan on your Jeep Compass, almost every bank will make it mandatory that you have full coverage to guarantee payment of the loan. If the policy lapses, the lender may insure your Jeep for a much higher rate and require you to fork over the higher price.
Third, insurance protects not only your car but also your financial assets. It will also provide coverage for medical transport and hospital expenses that are the result of an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay attorney fees in the event you are sued. If your Jeep gets damaged, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of insuring your car more than offset the price you pay, especially when you need to use it. According to a survey of 1,000 drivers, the average driver overpays more than $869 every year so compare rates at least once a year to make sure the price is not too high.
Parts of your car insurance policy
Knowing the specifics of car insurance aids in choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverage types available from car insurance companies.
Coverage for liability
Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property that is your fault. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 20/40/10 which means $20,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $40,000, and property damage coverage for $10,000. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage protects against claims like attorney fees, emergency aid, medical expenses and court costs. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible. Hawaii state minimum liability requirements are 20/40/10 but it's recommended drivers buy more coverage.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage and fire damage. The highest amount your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision coverage protection
Collision insurance pays for damage to your Compass resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as backing into a parked car, crashing into a building, scraping a guard rail, colliding with another moving vehicle and sideswiping another vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It's also possible to choose a higher deductible on your Compass to save money on collision insurance.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses for things like ambulance fees, chiropractic care, X-ray expenses, EMT expenses and funeral costs. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Jeep Compass.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits (which is 20/40/10), it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
You can find affordable coverage
There are still a few companies who may not provide online price quotes and usually these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through independent agents. Affordable Jeep Compass insurance in Honolulu can be purchased both online in addition to local insurance agencies, and you should compare rates from both in order to have the best chance of saving money.
