Will comprehensive insurance cover me if water gets into the vehicle in any way?
I want to buy comprehensive insurance for my vehicle, but I want to make sure all types of water damage are covered. Does comprehensive cover water damage of all kinds?

“In most cases, comprehensive coverage will cover water damage to your vehicle, provided that you weren’t negligent. Examples include water damage that’s the result of:
- The wearing out of the seal around your windows and trunk
However, you probably won’t be covered if you willingly drive through several feet of water or if you leave the windows down during a storm. Contact your insurance provider to find out exactly what’s covered.”

Is having a personal insurance agent always the best way to save on car insurance?
I have had the same insurance agent since I have been driving. The rate of my policy seems too high, so I got a quote from GEICO and they said they could save me $1,000 a year! I thought having your own agent meant they always get you the best rate!
