How does insurance coverage differ for rental vehicles vs. owned and leased vehicles?
Answer provided by
Answered on Nov 08, 2020
Insurance on a rental vehicle often doesn’t include liability coverage, which protects you if you injure someone else or damage another person’s property; instead it only covers physical damage to the rental vehicle. When you purchase traditional insurance on a vehicle that you own or lease, the policy will include coverage for both your vehicle and others’ property and injuries.

How can I lower my auto insurance as a member of the military?
I want to know how I can reduce my insurance costs. My car got hit in a parking lot and my insurance said I needed to pay my $500 deductible before they'd cover anything, which is also way too expensive.

Does my husband need to submit a PIP claim after a medical episode?
"My husband experience a medical episode while driving, which caused an accident. He was taken to the hospital and had to stay for a few days, but he wasn't injured in the accident. Our car insurance sent us paperwork about the hospitalization and accident. Do we need to submit a PIP claim to our insurance? Or should it just go through our health insurance?"
