Insuranceopedia explains Collection Expense Insurance

Collection expense insurance provides extra protection when it comes to traveling by car. In any event that the traveler's car breaks down or they need to leave it behind, collection expense insurance covers all the necessary expenses needed to retrieve their car, such as any repairs. Moreover, it covers the cost of storage before and after a scheduled repair while the insured is still traveling, until such time that they come back to collect your car. For collection expense insurance claims to be valid, the policyholder needs to inform their insurance agent of the specific dates of their journey.
