Whether it serves as a sweet ride for neighborhood excursions or as transportation out on the golf course, your custom golf cart deserves custom coverage. With that in mind, our Lifetime experts are here to tell you about the most important things your golf cart insurance should cover!
What Are Your Coverage Needs?
Before we dive into specific areas of coverage, we’d be remiss if we didn’t first tell you what to look for in your golf cart insurance plan. Your needs are going to depend on factors like the type of golf cart you own and how you intend to use it. For instance, if your golf cart is going to serve as a convenient mode of transportation for your family within your neighborhood, you may need more comprehensive coverage than a weekend golfer. Furthermore, it’s a good idea to consult with an insurance specialist to review your state’s golf cart and low speed vehicle laws.

Areas of Coverage
As you explore your golf cart insurance options, you should consider all possible scenarios of what could go wrong while you or someone else is using your golf cart. This is a simple yet effective way to avoid over-insuring or under-insuring your vehicle. To help you get started, here are some areas of coverage you may want to consider:
1. Bodily Injury Liability Coverage
Although liability coverage isn’t required in some states, it’s smart to have it. If you happen to injure another person while driving your golf cart, bodily injury liability coverage will help you pay for any resulting medical or legal bills, up to your policy limits.
2. Property Damage Liability Coverage
Do you plan on letting your kiddos take the wheel? Then, this is a particularly important area of coverage you should consider. If you are found at fault for damaging someone else’s property while driving your golf cart, this coverage may help you pay for the cost of repairing the damage.
3. Guest Passenger Liability
Will you be hosting friends and family on your golf cart? Then, you should definitely consider including guest passenger liability on your golf cart insurance policy. If any of your guest passengers are injured while aboard your golf cart, your guest passenger liability may help pay for their injuries, up to your policy limit.
4. Collision Coverage
Even the most seasoned drivers can make costly mistakes while driving a golf cart. That’s why it’s smart to have collision coverage built into your insurance plan. Regardless of who is at fault, this coverage will help you pay for any damage to your golf cart after a collision with another cart or object.
5. Comprehensive Coverage
Especially with the unpredictable weather here in Texas, including comprehensive coverage in your insurance plan is important. From a hail storm or tornado to a fire, comprehensive coverage will help you pay for any repairs, and even help with replacing your golf cart in the event of theft.
6. Accessory/Add-On Coverage
As we mentioned earlier, golf carts are no longer just for golfers, and neither are the many bells and whistles available in today’s market. From a custom body to fancy underbody LED lights, you can build a plan as unique as your golf cart with additional coverage for accessories and add-ons.
