Car Renters Be Aware

Nothing can ruin a summer vacation like getting into a fender bender. As millions of Americans plan to take a trip this summer, its important to be prepared when renting a car.

If you rent a car and an accident happens, or the car is stolen, you are liable. If you decide against taking the insurance offered by the rental car company, any claims will go against your personal auto insurance policy. If you dont have a personal insurance policy, you could be out thousands of dollars.

You should consider purchasing a separate plan from the rental company. Since many rental company plans do not carry a deductible, coverage can kick in immediately with no out of pocket costs to you

Vacations should be a time to relax and taking the insurance on your rental car may give you that extra piece of mind to let you do so.
