This makes it mandatory for every individual, who owns a car or even drives a car, to have a car insurance policy done. If thought about buying the car insurance policy first question that arises is that ‘do we really need car insurance?’ Well lets have a look at some points regarding having a car insurance policy against not having a car insurance policy and then an individual can decide on his own if he needs a car insurance or not. These points also include few things that one should keep in mind before and after buying the car insurance policy.

• Due to high number of accidents your car is at constant risk of being a part of an accident or being prone to damages. In such cases what would you prefer? To pay the entire expense, of repairing the damage or of the replacement of the whole car, from your pocket together at once or would you like to pay premium to the car insurance company on a regular basis so that the company pays for your full or most of the expense when need arises. It is easier to pay any amount in installments rather than all once at a stretch. The installments can be yearly, 6 monthly, 3 monthly or monthly.
