Coverages available on your policy
Knowing the specifics of your policy helps when choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are typical coverage types available from auto insurance companies.
Liability car insurance
This coverage protects you from damage or injury you incur to other's property or people. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 20/40/10 which means $20,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $40,000, and property damage coverage for $10,000.
Liability coverage pays for claims like structural damage, attorney fees, loss of income, legal defense fees and repair bills for other people's vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford. Hawaii state law requires minimum liability limits of 20/40/10 but you should think about purchasing better liability coverage.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
This protects you and your vehicle when the "other guys" either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Volkswagen Eos.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (20/40/10 in Hawaii), 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.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as damage from flooding, hitting a deer, falling objects and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The most you'll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider dropping full coverage.
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for things like colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a building, driving through your garage door and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It's also possible to increase the deductible on your Eos to bring the cost down.
Insurance for medical payments
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses like pain medications, surgery, dental work and ambulance fees. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
The best insurance company isn't always the cheapest
When trying to cut insurance costs, don't be tempted to buy poor coverage just to save money. In too many instances, someone sacrificed collision coverage to discover at claim time they didn't have enough coverage. The ultimate goal is to buy a smart amount of coverage at the lowest possible cost and still be able to protect your assets.
Cheaper Volkswagen Eos insurance in Honolulu is definitely available from both online companies and from local agencies, and you should compare price quotes from both to have the best selection. Some insurance providers may not provide rate quotes online and most of the time these regional carriers only sell coverage through local independent agencies.
