Renting a car? We’ll give you the inside scoop that will be able to save you money on your next car rental.
Due to the high risk that driving a car that isn’t yours might bring, some of us may automatically sign up for the car insurance that the car rental company will offer. Some car rental companies may try to convince you to buy their insurance to avoid the liability claims if something were to happen while you are driving the rental car. But, what if we told you that you don’t need their insurance?
The truth is that if you have auto liability insurance, that coverage extends to any vehicle that you drive – including rental cars. If someone who already has auto insurance purchases insurance from a rental company, they are double covering themselves unnecessarily. The fact of the matter is, if you have auto liability insurance, always say “no” to the insurance offered to you at a rental car dealership.
