Cincinnati Financial Auto Insurance Review

Cincinnati Financial Auto Insurance coverage has good standard coverage. Of note is their rental car liability coverage, which pays for accidents to an insured's vacation car under the standard liability limit. This protects drivers for physical damage and the loss of rental income faced by the rental car company through the policyholders' standard auto liability, as opposed to being subject to a policy deductible under the physical damage portion of the policy. They also offer an enhanced tier of car insurance with additional perks and benefits called the Personal Auto Plus.

Personal Auto Plus Perks

You can pay for additional benefits under the Auto Plus program. The benefits enhance your existing coverage limits, or waive deductibles in the standard policies. For example, under Cincinnati Financial's Safety Restraint Benefit, medical payments are doubled when occupants are in an accident while wearing safety belts. If insured cars are getting fixed at the auto repair shop for a covered loss, the Personal Auto Plus program almost triples the per diem rental allowance and overall benefit limit. Deductibles can be waived for collision / comprehensive coverage, and even glass replacements. Depending on how many features drivers find valuable, and how much it costs to get added to one's policy, Personal Auto Plus may be a good supplement to consider.
