When you shop for car insurance, check to see what kind of rental coverage you are being offered. Every car insurance company is different, and it is important to know what you are buying.
Will you be covered when you rent a car? Some car insurance companies will cover you when you rent a car at an airport or storefront location. This can save you a lot of money on your car rental--car insurance from a rental company is very pricey. While some car insurance companies offer this automatically or for a small fee, others either don't offer it or it comes with a hefty price tag, so be sure to ask about it.
The other rental car option that can be included in a car insurance policy is replacement coverage. If your personal vehicle is damaged in an accident, will the car insurance company provide you with a rental until your car is fixed? If the answer is yes, be sure to check to see how much this coverage is costing you before you select a car insurance policy. Rental car coverage is just one of many factors to consider as you purchase car insurance.
