Collision insurance is a very broad term used to refer to a variety of policies, offering varying coverage for automobile collisions. This can range from simply covering the associated repair costs, to paying for resultant health care expenses, that of the other driver etc. What all these offerings have in common is that they represent some level of financial assistance, above that of the insurance legally required, to policy holders in the event of a collision, hence the name.
Costs for collision insurance vary based on a number of factors. These include; (i) safety record of the driver seeking insurance (ii) value of the car and (iii) location. Usually, the most influential of these is the safety record and drivers with a history of frequent collisions will find themselves paying much higher premiums or even being denied insurance altogether. It should be noted that insurance statistics for collisions are based on claims, so paying for minor accidents out of pocket can save you money in the long run.
On a whole collision insurance is usually more than adequate for the average driver with no pre-disposed likelihood for misfortune. For drivers who desire, still, more protection and want the comfort of having nothing to worry about in any eventuality, there is comprehensive insurance.
