How do I save money on Flood Insurance in Alabama?

You may be able to save by getting a quote for private flood insurance instead of going through the NFIP. This is an entirely online process, no need to wait for a callback or an email! Once you've received your quote, compare it to what you'd pay through the NFIP. But don't just compare the costs, check what's covered by the NFIP so that if you try to submit a claim, you're not caught off-guard by what is, and isn't, covered.

Do I need flood insurance in Alabama?

Alabama's coastline is battered by rain nearly year round! Even if you're inland, or you're not in a flood zone that requires flood insurance, it does not mean that you're free from the risk of flooding. 

If you're wondering if you're in a flood zone, or close to one, enter your address on our FEMA Flood Zone map lookup.

Does my homeowner insurance in Alabama cover flooding?

Typically, your homeowner's insurance will be written through Allstate, Progressive, Farmers or possibly a State Farm agent. Homeowner's insurance generally excludes flood coverage. Obtaining a flood insurance policy is typically left up to the homeowner. If you're looking to get a policy, we offer a 100% online process, you can get a quote started here!

What is not covered by the NFIP?

Damage not directly caused by flooding like damage to the actual land you live on, or damage to anything outside such as fences or cars, and much of what is in your basement, isn't covered. Visit their website to see everything that is, or isn't, covered by the NFIP.

If you'd like to be free from these limitations and have more options for coverage, consider getting flood insurance from a private company,
