Are you planning on going on a road trip this summer? If so, you will most likely need to rent a car and have car insurance for your rental car.
Should you spend money on over-the-counter car insurance for your rental car? The answer to this question is yes and no. Yes you should buy car insurance from the car rental agency, and no you should not buy car insurance for your rental car, especially if your car insurance premium covers you when you rent cars especially from agencies like Hertz, Avis and Dollar Rent a Car.
How to Know If You Have Enough Car Insurance
A good way to verify that your car insurance company will cover your rental car is to call them and verify that your car insurance policy will cover your car rental, you can also contact your car insurance company through their website to verify your Oregon car insurance coverage since most car insurance companies these days provide their clients with an easy to use website to get all of their car insurance questions answered.
Car Insurance through Your Credit Card?
Yes, you can purchase rental car insurance through your credit card, especially if you have an American Express credit card which offers a car insurance premium for $24.95 that covers the driver for over 40 days and the policy is good for up to $100,000 worth of car insurance cover, $15,000 for medical expenses and $5,000 that can be used for any personal or property losses.
Common Car Insurance Mistake to Avoid
One Oregon car insurance mistake that drivers should always avoid is going with a liability only car insurance policy, especially when renting a car because, the liability policy will only cover the driver in cases where they have a minor accident but, when it comes to accidents where injuries are involved, the driver may not be covered.
