Leading auto insurance comparison site informs drivers on essential coverage for damage resulting from Halloween mischief

Foster City, CA – Oct. 28, 2020 – Halloween may look a bit different this year, but car owners should understand what their insurance may (or may not) cover in the event that a trick is played on their vehicle. CarInsurance.com provides an informative checklist on 10 Halloween pranks covered by car insurance.

Damage to vehicles from Halloween pranks is often covered by optional comprehensive insurance, which takes care of vandalism, theft, fire, animal strikes and more. But, collision coverage can be important in cases where objects crash into your car or you hit a fence or pole.

“We outline which insurance type protects against various Halloween pranks,” explains Penny Gusner, CarInsurance.com’s senior consumer analyst. "At the same time, we offer guidance on when it is appropriate to make an insurance claim and when it might be ultimately more cost-effective to take care of damage on your own.”

The National Retail Federation expects consumer spending to approximate $8.05 billion this Halloween, down from $8.78 billion in 2019. Scare-fest celebrators are spending more on activities to ensure a memorable holiday. Those celebrating plan to spend $92.12 on average, compared with $86.27 in 2019.

Gusner is available to discuss how consumers can ensure they are appropriately covered in advance of Halloween and can elaborate on what drivers should consider before making a claim for Halloween damage.
