Travel Insurance

I can get by without travel insurance, can’t I? It’s just a quick trip overseas.

Unlike a passport, travel insurance isn’t mandatory. But there are more reasons than ever to consider buying insurance when you travel:

  • You or a family member may become ill, get injured or die, and the trip needs to be cancelled
  • There may be unexpected flight delays or cancellations due to bad weather
  • The tour operator, airline, or cruise line may default or declare bankruptcy
  • There could be an airline or transportation strike
  • You may miss connections and have to make alternate plans
  • Your baggage can be lost or stolen
  • The cost of health care, hospitalization, or ambulance abroad could be prohibitive
  • Medicare and domestic medical insurance may not cover you
  • A medical emergency may require evacuation
  • You may have a non-refundable vacation package

Mexico Travel Insurance 3

U.S. insurance is invalid in Mexico, but luckily, Mexico insurance is easy to obtain in the U.S. and is generally quite affordable. The minimum you need is civil liability insurance, but other plans are available, priced according to vehicle and coverage. Mexican law doesn’t require drivers to have auto insurance, but in case of an accident, no matter how small you must have the means to pay for damages—e.g. valid insurance.

Contact your local AAA Travel Agency branch for more information on obtaining travel insurance.

Maryland Automobile Dealers Association #maryland #automobile #insurance #fund


#

Who We Are:

Maryland Automobile Dealers Association (MADA) is a statewide association of new car and truck dealers managed by a Board of Directors, which consists of members representing districts throughout the State. Individuals in related businesses are eligible and encouraged to join as associate members.

In 2010, MADA celebrated its 100th Anniversary. We are proud to have served Maryland dealers and our communties for over 100 years and look forward to entering a new century of service.

Our Mission

MADA was founded in 1910 as a non-profit trade association for the purpose of: “facilitating the exchange of ideas among its members; to encourage sound business policies; to foster constructive motor vehicle legislation; to discourage destructive motor vehicle legislation, and to promote confidence, respect and good fellowship among all who are directly or indirectly engaged in the motor vehicle industry.”

The Dealers’ Voice in Annapolis:

MADA has developed a strong working relationship with members of the Maryland General Assembly, the Motor Vehicle Administration, the Department of the Environment and numerous other state agencies.

Every year the Association analyzes hundreds of legislative and regulatory proposals and evaluates their impact on the new vehicle industry. Positions on specific legislative and regulatory issues are developed by the Association in cooperation with the dealer members and are presented as a collective view. MADA strives to minimize the impact of government regulations on its dealer members. The Maryland New Car and Truck Dealers Association Political Action Committee (MNCTDA/PAC) plays a significant role in the Association’s legislative program, working to elect candidates whose views most closely mirror those of the new car and truck dealers. In the years ahead, the Association will continue to recommend and support legislation that furthers the interest of the industry that is so vital to the state’s economic well being.

Public Relations

Your local new car and truck dealer is a vibrant part of the community in which he/she conducts business. Dealers are civic leaders, philanthropists, sports coaches, and they serve in other valuable roles in their community.

In addition to the good work dealers� and their employees conduct every year, MADA contributes to a number of charities on the dealers behalf as well. Maryland’s Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore is one of the top recipients of MADA charitable funds. Each year, shock trauma administrators are presented with a check at MADA’s annual press preview for the Baltimore International Auto Show.

MADA is also a proud sponsor of the Maryland State Teacher of the Year. MADA annually awards the winning teacher with a free vehicle. The teacher of the year is also invited to speak to MADA members at the Annual Meeting and Legislative Reception.

Classic Car Values and Antique Car Appraisals by Certified Vehicle Agents

Value Range

To determine a value range for a specific type of automobile, we need basic information about the condition of that vehicle. Please fill out and submit the form below. Usually, a reply is emailed to your address within one business day. The fees for this service are listed below. We accept payment by VISA, MasterCard, or Discover card for this service. If you do not have one of these cards, please mail this form with a check to AAG, P.O. Box 7034, Charlottesville, VA 22906.

A value range is not the appraised value of the automobile. It is a range of values that this auto may be within. For current market value, you will need to have a certified AAG vehicle appraisal by an AAG agent. If you order a certified car appraisal after getting an AAG Value Range on that vehicle, we will credit $25 towards the car appraisal fee.

NOTE: You must enabled javascript on your browser to complete this form

Your request will receive our personal attention and you will receive your value range, via email, within 24 hours, during normal business hours.

Well, it’s finally come to an end and at a very good note for me! It was a pleasure doing business with you. When I found your website on-line in an attempt in finding a professional, qualified and honest appraiser for me, I knew right away it was AAG. You did everything you said you would do and you worked for me to the bitter end. I appreciate you ‘sticking-to-your-guns’ for me. Very good job! I am quite satisfied. Thanks to you and your qualified staff,

– John C.

Best Cheap Car Insurance in Georgia for 2017 #georgia #automobile #insurance

Best Cheap Car Insurance in Georgia for 2017

For drivers with no at-fault accidents, DUIs or moving violations.

price

The average rate for good drivers among the three cheapest companies was about $1,010 per year. Geico was by far the least expensive option we found and returned a quote well under that number, just $715 per year. Georgia Farm Bureau and State Farm rounded out the list of cheapest insurers in Georgia for good drivers.

Motorists with no moving violations or crashes should look into discounts that reward safe driving, such as perks for having no claims for a certain amount of time. Savings from these sorts of discounts can be an important factor when deciding which insurers have the best deal.

Cheapest for young drivers

For drivers in their early 20s.

price

Young drivers typically wouldn’t have as much at stake financially in a crash-related lawsuit as older motorists and can select leaner policies as a result. We gathered quotes for drivers in their early 20s carrying the minimum required coverage, and found relatively cheap car insurance in Georgia.

Geico was the most affordable option with an estimate of $417 per year, which translates to around $35 a month. Prices jumped a bit with the next cheapest companies for this group, however. Georgia Farm Bureau and State Farm both notched rates above $60 per month.

Cheapest for drivers with one at-fault crash

price

You can typically expect a rate increase if you cause a crash, either with your current company at renewal or if you decide to shop around.

Geico paced the field with the lowest average quote, $1,057 per year. That’s $342 more than the best deal we found for drivers of the same age with no crashes on record.

Half of the insurers we looked at had rates of almost $2,500 or more. The priciest estimate for this group was over $2,900 per year, which goes to show how much you stand to save by comparing several quotes, even if you have a bad driving record.

Cheapest for drivers with poor credit

For drivers placed in the Poor Credit tier.

price

People with poor credit tend to face higher car insurance rates than other drivers. The good news for Georgians is that the two cheapest options we found — Geico and Georgia Farm Bureau — returned the same prices for folks with credit problems as they did for good drivers with good credit.

Not all insurers are forgiving of poor credit, so shopping around is still important if you have credit issues. Liberty Mutual, for example, had the third-lowest rate at $2,285 per year, more than $1,000 higher than the Georgia Farm Bureau’s.

Cheapest for retired drivers

For drivers in their mid- to late 60s who no longer use their car for commuting.

NerdWallet is a free tool to find you the best credit cards, cd rates, savings, checking accounts, scholarships, healthcare and airlines. Start here to maximize your rewards or minimize your interest rates. Alex Glenn

price

By spending less time in the car than their commuting counterparts, retirees can snag pretty cheap car insurance in Georgia.

We collected rates for drivers in their 60s who travel half as much in a year as our other groups. Geico had the best deal available at $579 per year. That’s $136 cheaper than the most affordable price we found for drivers half that age who put a daily commute on the odometer.

Cheapest for drivers with a military connection

NerdWallet is a free tool to find you the best credit cards, cd rates, savings, checking accounts, scholarships, healthcare and airlines. Start here to maximize your rewards or minimize your interest rates. Alex Glenn

Get a quote USAA is open only to active military members, veterans and their families.

If you re an active military member or a veteran — or have an immediate family member who is — you ll most likely find relatively cheap car insurance in Georgia from USAA, a company that’s not available to the general public. In fact, USAA offered one of the three cheapest rates for every driver category listed above.

Minimum car insurance requirements in Georgia

Georgia car insurance policies must include liability insurance, which pays for others’ property damage and injuries if you cause a crash.

Here are the minimum liability coverage amounts you must select:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability coverage per crash
  • $25,000 property damage liability coverage per crash

While this will be enough to drive legally, it’s usually wise to get more than the minimum. An at-fault crash could easily result in injury or repair bills higher than the amounts listed above, and the remaining balance would have to come out of your pocket. You may also want to consider common add-ons such as collision, comprehensive and uninsured motorist protection.

Visit NerdWallet’s guide to car insurance requirements by state to learn more about buying your Georgia car insurance policy.

Alternative car insurance in Georgia

Drivers who are unable to buy Georgia car insurance on the open market — due to DUIs, poor credit or other reasons — can shop for coverage through the Georgia Automobile Insurance Plan .

If you re searching for cheap car insurance in Georgia, you can also use NerdWallet s car insurance comparison tool.

Here’s a summary of where you’ll find the cheapest insurance, by category:

Cheapest car insurance in Georgia

Updated March 23, 2017.

METHODOLOGY

For most categories, NerdWallet averaged rates for 30-year-old men and women in 10 ZIP codes and with the following coverage limits:

  • $100,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person
  • $300,000 bodily injury liability coverage per accident
  • $50,000 property damage liability coverage per accident
  • $100,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage per person
  • $300,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage per accident
  • Collision coverage with $1,000 deductible
  • Comprehensive coverage with $1,000 deductible

We used a 2013 Toyota Camry in all cases. Our sample retired driver was 67 and drove 50% fewer annual miles than other groups. Our sample young driver was 22 and carried the minimum required coverage levels. These are sample rates generated through Quadrant Information Services. Your own rates will be different.

California Lemon Law Attorneys and Lawyers #california #lemon #law #attorneys, #lemon


#

As a California resident. you have rights under our California lemon law .

Under the California lemon law you have the right to a repurchase of your vehicle proven to be a “lemon” under the state statute.

Under the California lemon law you have the right to receive a refund based upon the original acquisition price of the vehicle, less a charge for usage based upon the odometer miles at the first of what became repeated repair attempts.

Under the California lemon law you have the right to the attorney�s fees and costs being billed to the automobile manufacturer, not you.

Under the California lemon law you have the right to ask for a new replacement vehicle for your defective new vehicle, if both you and the manufacturer agree upon it.

Under the California lemon law you have the right to hire our law firm with no out-of-pocket expenses.

Under the California lemon law you have the right to keep your vehicle and pay us nothing if we do not reach settlement on your case.

California residents who purchased their new or used car, SUV, truck, van, cross-over, or motorhome with a manufacturer’s warranty have lemon law rights when their purchase (or lease) has been subject to too many repeated warranty repairs. In fact, the California lemon law is one of the strongest lemon laws in the nation. It offers the best consumer protection, has built-in provisions for attorneys fees and costs, and bases the refund upon the initial purchase price, not the current value of the vehicle. Having California’s largest statewide lemon law attorney firm represent you in a lemon law case/claim is your best consumer protection and representation choice.

If you’re having any type of repeated mechanical problem(s) with your vehicle, we encourage you to use our free auto expert question/answer feature. Please CLICK HERE to post your question. Your question to our auto expert Randy Sottile, and his answer back to you will be kept confidential to your email address, and not shared with anyone else.

Call1-858-342-0073or email the Lemon Law Auto Expert, Randy Sottile, about your vehicle problems/issues!

Repeated warranty repairs? Unsafe vehicle? Dealer not getting your vehicle repaired? Are you “done” with your defective vehicle, and want it bought back? Need to know what your legal rights are under our California lemon law? You may have a California lemon law claim and case that will allow you to return the vehicle under the California state lemon law statute for a buyback and get a refund of all the monies and payments you have made, as well as a payoff of any loan or lease balance. California lemon law cases can also settle with the manufacturer replacing the offending new lemon vehicle with a new, current year model of your choice of the same MSRP price. In some cases we can negotiate with the manufacturer to allow you to keep your vehicle (if you desire to) and receive a payment in the thousands of dollars for the inconvenience you have encountered with all the past repair visits. Call us today at 1-800-225-3666 and receive a free California lemon law consultation.

California lemon law relief for all California residents. Your lemon law rights are all within the California lemon law statute, which is located on this website. The California lemon law (Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, and the Tanner Consumer Protection Act / California Civil Code Section 1793.2, 1793.22) was enacted to protect California consumers from having to deal with repeated repair visits back to the dealership for factory warranty repairs.

Has your new or used vehicle been in the shop over and over again for dealer warranty repairs? You may have a California lemon law claim and case that will allow you to return the vehicle under the California state lemon law statute for a buyback and get a refund of all the monies and payments you have made, as well as a payoff of any loan or lease balance. California lemon law cases can also settle with the manufacturer replacing the offending new lemon vehicle with a new, current year model of your choice of the same MSRP price. In some cases we can negotiate with the manufacturer to allow you to keep your vehicle (if you desire to) and receive a payment in the thousands of dollars for the inconvenience you have encountered with all the past repair visits.

Any new or used vehicle that has remaining factory warranty coverage, or manufacturer “Certified Pre-Owned” used car warranty coverage may be a candidate for consumer protection under the California lemon law.

Consumer information on lemon law warranty repair attempts: To protect your legal rights for a potential California lemon law claim/case, we suggest the following. When visiting your authorized dealer for repairs to your vehicle under the manufacturer�s warranty, be sure that the wording on the Repair Order of your complaint are your words of your description of the problem/symptom, not the Service Advisors interpretation of what you are saying. Equally important for a California lemon law claim/case is that when the vehicle goes back for a “repeat of same problem/symptom”, that you keep the customer complaint wording consistent on each Repair Order in sequence. This adds strength to your California lemon law case. Mentioning possible action under the California lemon law to the Service Advisor is not recommended. Discussing your vehicle being a “lemon” will almost certainly “flag” your vehicle, and more than likely it would come back after a repair with “could not duplicate customers concern”. Manufacturers are very savvy on lemon law issues – and so are their dealers. After all, they have trained them.

If you are missing any Repair Order invoices, you can request copies of them from your Service Advisor. The Service Advisor can also print out what is known as a “warranty repair history printout”, which details all repair visits to any/all authorized dealers for warranty repairs. Again, it is best not to mention “lemon law” to the Service Advisor as you will likely not get the copies of the documents you are requesting. A California lemon law case and claim are predicated upon Repair Order Invoices. These are the proof of your claim and repair attempts. Keep them in a safe place, away from your vehicle.

Important lemon law rights notice to consumers with vehicles with recently expired factory warranties: If your vehicle is outside of the factory “bumper-to-bumper” or “powertrain” warranty, you may still be eligible for relief under the California lemon law. If you have had four (4) or more repair attempt visits at an authorized dealership for the same issue/problem/complaint before expiration of factory warranty coverage, and have repair order invoice documents that support this (or you get a warranty repair history printout from your dealer), you may be eligible for a substantial cash settlement under the lemon law. If you gave the automobile manufacturer written or verbal notice (telephoned in to Customer Assistance Center) of the continued warranty non-conformity issues during the warranty coverage period and continue to have the same issue/problem/complaint, you may potentially entitled to a repurchase (buyback) of your vehicle, even though it is out of factory warranty. We invite you to call us to discuss your out-of-warranty vehicle’s problems and warranty repairs history. The same applies to “Certified Pre-Owned Warranty” used vehicles, which enjoy the same lemon law protection as new vehicles.

The California lemon law also requires that the automobile manufacturer pay for the consumer’s hourly attorney’s fees on a case and claim that settles for a repurchase (buyback), new replacement vehicle, or a cash settlement payment. This makes the lemon law economically feasible for consumers who would not otherwise be in a position to hire a lemon law attorney.

We are a California-based statewide lemon law attorney firm, with offices throughout California.
