Insurance: Car Rentals

Save money on car rental insurance by not buying it if it is not necessary.  Check with your insurance agent.  The insurance you carry on your private car should carry over to your rental vehicle.

 

The exception to this would be if you have an older car and do not carry collision insurance.  Rather than purchase this coverage with your rental car, it is more thrift friendly to temporarily put it on your personal vehicle. You do need to plan in advance, as you need to give your insurance company up to 4 weeks advance notice.
