What is Collision Insurance?
Collision Insurance, also known as bumper to bumper insurance, covers you by paying for the cost of repairing or replacing your car if it’s damaged in a collision with another car or object. If you lease or finance your vehicle, collision coverage is typically required by the lender.
How Does Bumper to Bumper Insurance Work?
Bumper to bumper insurance is limited to the actual cash value of the vehicle. It requires a deductible which is the amount you’ll need to pay before receiving benefits. You can typically choose the amount of your deductible when you buy coverage.
Collision Insurance Deductibles and Limits
Higher deductibles lower your premium but increase the amount you must pay out of pocket if a loss occurs. For example, say you hit a guardrail and you have a $500 deductible, you would pay $550 and your insurance would cover the rest of the repairs. With a higher collision deductible, you would cover more of the cost of repairs, but your monthly premium would be lower.

Why Buy Collision Insurance?
If you’re leasing a vehicle, or you still owe money on it, bumper to bumper insurance isn’t an option. Most dealerships and lenders require it. Once your vehicle is paid off, and you know what it is worth then you may decide to buy collision insurance. Some people find it is a good idea to cover newer cars, but as a car depreciates they consider dropping this coverage to save money.
