credit for prior coverage

Definition

Insurance policy issued by a company to offer a discount to a client who already has the vehicle, home or other asset insured. This is an incentive to change insurance providers to one that may be able to offer more coverage for a lower rate. A new car owner who just bought his vehicle may not qualify for credit for prior coverage.
