I am a licensed insurance agent. Comp is if your vechile is stolen, or damaged by something other than a car which you will have to pay the dec. Coll is if you get into a car accident and say the person did not have insurance then your coll would kick in. But in most cases there property damage will cover you depending on the state. I am from Florida and it is a no falt state so it doesnt matter. You need to check with your agent and see your dectibable. I would suggest uninsured motorist just in case they don't have insurance your medical will be paid. But that has nothing to do with the com/coll. hope it helped.Tammy

When you arrange for auto insurance, you have a number of options for the type of coverage you want. Collision repair is one of those options. If the vehicle is financed, collision and comprehensive coverage are required. If coverage exists, refer to the policy for details. www.insurance.com

It depends upon the type of damage and the cause of it; some physical damage is covered by the comprehensive coverage of an auto policy. For example, glass breakage and vandalism is normally covered by the comprehensive coverage. All of that said, collision and comprehensive coverages are generally offered and purchased in tandem. Therefore, if one does not have collision coverage, there is a good chance that there is no comprehensive coverage.

You have to weigh the value of your vehicle versus the cost of the insurance. If your vehicle is still financed you are required to keep full coverage on the vehicle. Another good option is to drop collision and keep comprehensive on the policy. Collision is if you hit something or turn it over and comprehensive is everything else including animal collisions and broken glass. The higher premium is on the collision.
