How Much Does It Cost To Purchase Insurance For My Rental Car?

Purchasing insurance in the US banner

Before you add any additional insurance products to your car rental booking, you should do your research to check if you actually need the product. In some cases, renters from the United States may be covered by their existing car insurance, and some foreign travelers may have travel insurance policies that include coverage for rental cars.

You can add insurance for an additional daily fee. The protection options commonly offered by car rental companies include Loss Damage Waiver (which limits your financial liability for any damage to the vehicle), Personal Effects Protection (to cover your personal belongings) and Personal Accident Insurance (which provides emergency medical expenses).

The price of these products, and the terms and conditions surrounding insurance polices are different between locations. If you need assistance, feel free to contact our Customer Care Team.

It is illegal to drive in the United States without insurance. If you are a US resident, check the conditions of your existing car insurance policy to see if your rental car will be covered. Foreign visitors will need to look at the conditions of their existing travel insurance policies to find out more about their level of coverage.
