What is the difference between collision coverage and comprehensive coverage?

Collision losses occur when your automobile collides with another car or object.  When that happens the damages to your car will be paid under your collision coverage.

Comprehensive provides coverage for most other direct physical damage losses you could incur and include damage to your car from a hailstorm, theft, vandalism, glass breakage etc. will be covered under comprehensive coverage.

The deductibles under the collision and comprehensive coverage are often different.
