Before You Rent A Car

If you’re thinking about renting a car this weekend for Labor day, you might want to consider making a call to your insurance agent.

Why Call Your Insurance Agent?
1. You want to speak with your agent before renting a car to find out how much coverage you currently have on your own car. It’s possible that whatever coverages and deductibles you have on your own car could apply when you rent a car if you plan on using the car for
recreation purposes.

2. You want to speak with your agent before renting a car if you have dropped either comprehensive or collision, and consider adding them back on, as you will not be covered if your rental car
is stolen or damaged in an accident.

3. You want to speak with your agent before renting a car to check to if your insurance company will pay for administrative
fees, loss of use or towing charges. It’s possible that some insurance companies may provide an
insurance rider to cover some of these costs, which would actually make it less
expensive than purchasing coverage through the rental car company.
