Did you know that items stolen from vehicles are typically not covered by auto insurance? Your auto insurance policy provides coverage for any damage to your actually vehicle. However, you may have coverage through your homeowners or renters policy! This is why it is extremely important to make sure your home policy has adequate personal property limits. Additionally, make sure to never leave electronics in plain sight in your vehicle. This also goes for packages and shopping bags, especially during this time of year. Whether you’re just going down the street or heading on a long road trip, remember to lock up your valuables!
Items in your vehicles aren’t the only thing that can be stolen. Credit monitoring is a great way to stop identity theft in it’s tracks! Farmers Identity Shield can give you peace of mind while monitoring your credit report. You can add this coverage as a policy endorsement to get assistance for losses due to identity theft, credit and public records monitoring, and identity or travel documents replacement! For less than 18 cents a day, or $65 a year, you’ll know that you have someone watching your (and your credit’s) back. Click here for more travel tips for the holiday season!
