Does auto insurance cover a rental car?

After not having traveled in a few years, many families are looking forward to getting a chance to vacation again. You set about getting a hotel, getting flights, and then you need to get a rental car. At Daniel Carinici Agency LLC in Pittsburgh, PA, we provide the auto insurance option that allows you to choose the insurance that meets your needs.

Auto Insurance and Rental Cars

When you begin your online search for a rental car, once you have determined which rental agency you want to use and what size car you want, you will be faced with a lot of questions about what type of insurance you would like for the vehicle you are renting. You may be confused about what type of coverage is actually provided by your personal auto insurance.  

What type of rental insurance you have is very much affected by the type of coverage you actually have. If you have a basic insurance policy that will only include liability coverage, you probably don’t need to have any additional liability coverage for the rental car. 

If you have a full coverage insurance policy on your personal vehicle, it will provide the same amount of coverage on a rental vehicle. So, if you have a relatively new vehicle, your coverage should be adequate to cover a rental car unless you are renting a luxury vehicle. 

If you have any questions about whether your insurance provides the coverage you require, give your insurance agent a call and check for sure. When in doubt, check with your credit card company whether you have car rental coverage as a perk with your credit card. It is a good backup plan.
