How much auto insurance coverage do I need?
Your driving habits, vehicle, location and budget all determine how much coverage you need. You should consider the following when thinking about your auto insurance coverage options:
- Your state may require you to have liability insurance.
- If you're making payments on your car, you may be required to have collision coverage.
- Choosing a higher deductible lowers the amount you pay for insurance, but it also increases the amount you pay out-of-pocket after a loss.
- If you have an older vehicle with a lower value, it might not make sense to pay for more expensive lines of coverage.
Taking the time to think about these things will put you on a path to better understand what level of car insurance you need. Mercury has more tips on this subject and we always recommend speaking with one of our agents. An agent can create a customized policy that is tailored to your needs.
