What coverage do you need?

On your auto insurance policy, it is recommended:

* at least $100,000/$300,ooo bodily injury (BI) coverage;

*collision coverage, which includes a rental car;

*Medpay (as much as you can afford, but at least $2,000-$5,000), and most importantly

*UM (uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage) which matches the amount of BI coverage you have sure it is stacked

if you have more than one vehicle on your policy. Having complete coverage is important because a massive amount of drivers in Florida

are either completely uninsured or are effectively uninsured (minimal coverage).
