Many people enjoy "destination" vacations where they fly to the location then rent a car for local transportation. When you rent a vehicle, it’s important to have the right insurance coverage for the rental. Should you take the coverage offered by the rental company? Or will coverage provided by your personal auto insurance policy and the credit card used to rent the car be adequate?
Finding the best insurance coverage for the vehicle you rent depends on the answers to several important questions. In most cases, the coverage provided by your personal auto insurance policy and credit card will be both excellent and least expensive. But in other cases, the coverage provided by the rental agency may be your best choice, even though it may cost more.
