While minimum coverage only covers the other driver's damages or injuries, full coverage ensures that your car is protected, as well. It includes collision and comprehensive coverage.

  • Comprehensive coverage: Also known as "other-than-collision coverage," comprehensive coverage protects your car from any non-collision damage, such as a wild animal, theft or fire.
  • Collision coverage: Collision coverage pays for damages to your car after a collision — no matter who was responsible for the accident.

Cheap car insurance for drivers with prior incidents

Insurers raise premiums for drivers they deem high risk. Factors that can increase your risk rating include having an accident, a DUI or a speeding ticket on your driving record, as well as having a low credit score.
