Additional car insurance coverages to consider

If you're leasing or financing a vehicle, most lenders require you to carry comprehensive auto coverage and collision auto coverage in addition to Georgia's mandated coverages. Comprehensive and collision pay for your totaled or damaged vehicle due to a covered incident, regardless of fault — so if you're not sure you could afford a new car or major repairs after an accident, it can make sense to add these physical damage coverages even if you don't have a car loan or lease.
