Farm Bureau car insurance pros and cons

There are upsides and downsides to all car insurance carriers. Here are some of the good and bad points of going with Farm Bureau: 
iconPros
  • A Farm Bureau agent will review your auto policy and search for discounts every year—this is called SuperCheck.
  • Becoming a member of Farm Bureau has additional benefits, such as discounts on hotel and rental car reservations.
  • Farm Bureau offers a good variety of
    discounts
    .
iconCons
  • Though Farm Bureau writes policies in every state, some states sell their policies through subsidiaries.
  • They don’t offer a lot of add-on coverages, like
    gap insurance
    or
    rental car reimbursement
    .
  • Member benefits may vary by state. Policyholders in Missouri, for example, may note have the same benefits as those in Tennessee.
To purchase Farm Bureau insurance products, you have to be a member of a Farm Bureau chapter—but that’s easy. Applying for car insurance with Farm Bureau is no different than with any other provider, and accepting a policy automatically makes you a member. 
Despite the name, membership is open to all, not just farmers.
Farm Bureau insurance policies do include an annual Farm Bureau membership fee (usually $20 to $30), which is rolled into your policy premium for ease of payment. This fee gets you access to member benefits, such as hotel and rental car discounts, and also secures you a subscription to your chapter’s monthly magazine.

What it covers
This coverage protects you if you cause damage to another driver’s vehicle. It will also cover you if you injure someone with your car.
Bodily injury liability
and
property damage liability
are usually included in liability coverage.
Collision coverage is an optional coverage that covers repairs if your vehicle is damaged in an accident. 
Comprehensive coverage is an optional coverage that pays out if your car is damaged in an incident other than a collision, such as fire, vandalism, weather, animal strikes, and more.
MedPay will pay for medical expenses, hospitalization costs, and more after a covered accident. 
PIP will pay for medical expenses, hospitalization costs, and more after a covered accident.

Options that go the extra mile:

Replacement cost coverage: If your car that is four to five model years old gets in a total loss accident, it will still be eligible for replacement. 
Roadside assistance
: Emergency roadside assistance coverage quickly and reliably helps you out with towing, fuel delivery, locksmith services, tire changes, and more. There aren’t any out-of-pocket costs and all you need to do is call Farm Bureau’s Claims Center.
