With the ever-increasing cost of fuel and other travel expenses, it's no wonder people are looking for new ways to financially protect themselves and save on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's preliminary 2006 results estimated there were approximately 6 million auto accidents last year, which furthers the notion that auto travel can be treacherous and expensive.
Weather woes can add another dimension to travel. Rain, hail, snow and icy conditions not only increase the occurrence of accidents, but can also cause damage to vehicles, as was the case for Lou Bynum. Bynum, of Granite City, Ill., was at church when a tornado struck. His car, which sat vulnerably in the parking lot, sustained extensive damage-damage that was covered by his FaithGuard policy.
For GuideOne Insurance customers who choose FaithGuard, the company also provides increased medical coverage limits, protection for religious tithing and mortgage and auto loan payments for those who become injured and can no longer work due to an accident. Additionally, memorial donations to the insured's religious institution are made should a collision result in death.
So, the next time you get into your car, think about your destination-it just might save you money.
