Optional Coverage in Rhode Island

In addition to the state’s requirements, you should also consider adding optional coverages to your Auto Insurance policy. These optional coverages can offer you significant financial protection that minimum requirements won’t.

  • Collision Coverage*: Let's say you slide off the road due to weather conditions. Or perhaps your car gets damaged in a parking lot accident where it's impossible to assign blame. Liability Insurance won't pay to have your vehicle fixed, but Collision coverage will. After you pay your deductible, the rest of your repair costs (up to the policy limits) will be taken care of. *If you are financing or leasing your car, your lender requires you to purchase Collision coverage.
  • Comprehensive Coverage*: This type of coverage addresses all of the possible damages that could be caused to your car by anything other than a collision. This can include fire, flood, vandalism and more. *If you are financing or leasing your car, your lender requires you to purchase Comprehensive coverage.
  • Medical Payments: This coverage will pay for your medical expenses if you are injured in an accident.
  • Rental Reimbursement: This coverage pays for your rental car expenses when your car is being repaired from an accident, up to policy limits.
  • Towing and Labor: This will cover costs incurred if your car needs towing, up to policy limits.

*Although Collision coverage and Comprehensive coverage are not required by law, they may be required in your car loan or lease contract with the lender.

Your Auto Insurance should be tailored to your specific situation, and you should feel confident in the policy you’ve chosen. Should you need help choosing a policy that fits your lifestyle, consult a licensed Insurance Specialist at AIS.
