Does My Insurance Cover a Rental Car If I’m on Vacation?

Going on vacation is supposed to be fun and relaxing. The last thing you want to worry about is your insurance coverage. If you fly to your vacation destination, you will normally have a rental car so you can get from place to place. It’s important to know whether your car insurance coverage will cover the rental as well. If you live in Brownwood, TX or any of the surrounding communities, you can turn to the agents of Robnett Integra Insurance Services for the answers.

Talk to Your Agent

While you are making your travel plans, it’s a good idea to talk to your insurance agent. They may be able to provide you with a vacation or travel policy that will cover some of the unexpected emergencies that sometimes occur when you are on vacation.  They can advise you what your homeowner’s and car insurance policies will cover and what you may need a supplemental policy for.

Rental Insurance

When you rent a vehicle, most rental agencies will offer you the option of purchasing additional insurance. While it is more costly than your own, it may be a wise option. This way you are fully covered. By having both your own policy as well as the rental agency’s policy in place, it’s more likely that the entire amount of any damages will be covered.
