Maine Auto Insurance
Maine has one of the oldest Scenic Byway Programs in the country, making it an ideal place for exploration by driving. You can choose roads that lead to magnificent mountains, through the natural autumn beauty of New England or through the historic villages of Maine. Wherever you choose to drive, as a resident of Maine, you are required by state law to carry the minimum Auto Insurance coverage whenever you hit the road.
This is where AIS can help! We do the search and find the lowest rates and best coverage for you, so you can spend more time on the road without worrying if you are covered in the case of an accident or mishap.

Optional Coverage in Maine
You might find that the minimum state requirements for Maine Auto Insurance won’t sufficiently cover your expenses related to an accident, should one occur.
Below are optional coverages that can offer you more financial protection:
- Collision Coverage*: This coverage assists in costs of damages that result from a collision with another vehicle or object.
- Comprehensive Coverage*: This helps you pay for costs that are associated with damages that come from sources other than collision, such as vandalism, theft, fire and flood.
- Rental Reimbursement Coverage: This pays for a portion or all of your rental car expenses when your car is getting repaired from an accident.
- Towing and Labor: This pays for the expenses of towing, up to the limits of your policy for this coverage.
- Loan/Lease Coverage (GAP Coverage): This covers the difference between the actual monetary value of your car at the time of loss and the balance you still owe on that vehicle. This saves you from having to pay off your loan/lease when your car is no longer drivable.
- Umbrella Policies: A way to have higher Liability limits without greatly increasing your premium is to purchase an Umbrella policy. An Umbrella policy will protect you above your Liability coverage and also cover some losses that are not included in Liability insurance. To get an Umbrella policy, it is typically required that you have the following limits of Bodily Injury Liability Insurance: $250,000 per person and $500,000 total per accident.
*Although Collision coverage and Comprehensive coverage are not required by law, they may be required in your car loan or lease contract with the lender.
You are under no obligation to purchase any of these optional Auto Insurance policies. But if you think that they may be right for you, feel free to call us at Auto Insurance Specialists to purchase some additional coverage.
