Do you need car rental insurance?

Acuity Insurance highlights a question many of us have asked before — “Do I need car rental insurance if I already have car insurance?”

Our in-house personal insurance expert breaks down this question and points out what to look for in your current car insurance policy to see if the rental car would be covered. In general, your liability and medical expense coverage would apply to your use of a rental vehicle, but you should review your policy or check with your agent or insurance provider to be sure. Also, many policies have limits on the amount of time you are covered while renting a car, so that is something to look into as well Don’t wait until you get to the rental car counter! As you start to plan your trip and consider the possibility of renting a car, be sure to check out your car insurance policy to determine if a rental car would be covered.
