Comprehensive insurance covers damage to your car caused by incidents other than collisions. For example, it can kick in if your car is stolen or if a really bad storm or other act of nature damages your vehicle. Most of the time, this coverage is used for damage sustained while you’re not driving your vehicle.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
