2. If Something Goes Wrong, It is Your Fault
Rental car companies have a slew of insurance policies for customers to select. However, the most important feature in any rental insurance contract is a “collision damage waiver.” It is imperative that customers buy this type of insurance from the rental company because it covers the costs of damages in the event of an accident. If you do not have this insurance, or you get it from another company, the rental car provider may put the responsibility of accident costs on your shoulders. It is possible your insurance provider will cover these costs, but it is not guaranteed.
