Infinity Auto Insurance Coverage Options
Infinity auto insurance has all the basic coverage options that keep you and your vehicle operating legally on the road. The basic options include bodily injury, property damage, collision, comprehensive, medical payments, personal injury protection, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
Every Infinity auto insurance policy comes with a free membership to the DriverClub, Infinity’s roadside assistance program. DriverClub gives you access to Infinity’s network of roadside assistance experts 24/7. But even though membership is free, policyholders are expected to pay for any services they use. Infinity has pre-negotiated lower service fees for DriverClub members.
Rental reimbursement is also available for purchase by drivers who want rental car expenses to be covered in the event that their primary vehicle is totaled or stuck in a repair shop after an accident. This coverage costs about an additional $7 to $10 per month.
