Should my husband and I have separate auto insurance policies?

If your husband is able to get a cheaper quote due to his cleaner driving history, it would be a good decision to have separate policies. I would suggest you shop around for quotes as well to see if you can get a lower rate.

Can my husband add a car that is in my name to his insurance policy?

Thanks for your question. Your husband should be able to add your vehicle so long as his insurance carrier is alright with the change.

Are excluded drivers covered if they're not at fault for the accident?

If the excluded driver was driving but another party hits them, the at-fault party is still responsible for paying for the damages. Had the accident been caused by an excluded driver, the insurance company is under no obligation to honor that claim.

I had an accidental ten day lapse between insurance carriers. How long will I be penalized for lapse?

You will have to have had your car insurance for a continuous six months in order to cease being penalized with a higher rate and get credit for having insurance — which should help your rate come down. See our guide to lapses in coverage to understand how and why a lapse in coverage impacts your premium.

How do you insure a car that is not being driven but is held for collateral by a bank?

Whether or not the vehicle is being driven, you still need the state minimum liability coverage — in Mississippi, the state-required liability limits are 25/50/25, meaning you are required to carry $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident of bodily injury coverage and $25,000 in property damage coverage. In most cases, if the vehicle is used as collateral for a loan, the loan company will require you to have comprehensive and collision coverage to protect your vehicle.

An excluded driver got into an not-at-fault accident with my vehicle

In this situation, it can depend. When a driver is excluded from a car insurance policy, this means they are not covered to drive your vehicle.

Who insures a vehicle that is shared?

It is tough to answer the question without more information. If your daughter is away from school and living there full time, she will need a policy for that address.

Do I need to buy a flood insurance policy for my car?

While it is correct that your home will need a separate policy for flood coverage, you do not need it for your auto insurance as long as you have comprehensive coverage. Comprehensive covers things like fire, theft, vandalism, and flooding.

Should I file a claim for damage that I caused to someone's bumper?

I would recommend having the other driver get an estimate first. This way, you can decide if the repair costs are affordable enough to pay for the damage yourself.

Why is your company called The Zebra?
