Who May Benefit From 21st Century?
If you live in California and are looking for standard auto insurance then 21st Century may be a good option for you. Its online and mobile app features are very easy to use and are great for people who do not care to meet with an insurance agent in person. Additionally, you may be able to lower the cost of your premium if you qualify for one or more of its driver and vehicle discounts.
Types of Auto Insurance
21st Century offers the following types of insurance.
Bodily Injury Liability
Bodily injury liability covers the medical expenses, lost wages or income, pain, and even funeral expenses for people injured in an accident where you are at fault. It is normally required in most states.
Property Damage Liability
Property damage liability covers the cost of repairs for another person’s property or vehicle if you are responsible for causing an accident. Like bodily injury liability insurance, it is usually required in most states.
If you are in an accident with another vehicle, collision coverage pays for damage to your car even if you are at fault for the accident. You can purchase this additional coverage to help pay for repair costs greater than your out-of-pocket deductible amount.
Comprehensive coverage can help you pay for the cost of repairs in the event that your car is damaged in a non-collision incident. These can include damage caused from theft, vandalism, storms, falling objects, natural disasters, or accidents involving animals.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage
Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage protects you and passengers in your vehicle if you are in a collision with an uninsured or underinsured motorist and you are not at fault. This coverage can help pay for medical bills and related expenses you or your passengers incur as a result of the accident.
In addition to standard coverage, 21st Century offers several additional features. With extended transportation expense coverage, or rental reimbursement, you can get from $30-$50 per day for 30 days to help cover the cost of a replacement vehicle if your car is disabled for more than a day due to a covered auto accident.
If you insure a vehicle with 21st Century, you automatically receive 24/7 roadside assistance through the 21st Roadside Assistance Program. It also offers several discounts that can lower the cost of your insurance premium, including a good driver discount, good student discount, mature driver discount, multi-car discount, and anti-theft discount.
The 21st Century mobile app, which is available for iOS and Android devices through the Apple and Google Play stores respectively, allows you to manage your policy and make payments wherever you are. 21st Century also provides specific coverage if you wish to insure an antique or classic car.
