Going on a last-minute road trip? Don’t leave home without rental car damage protection
August is the perfect time to embark on one last road trip before the summer ends. Rental car agencies offer trip protection, but renters may still forego coverage, relying instead on their personal auto insurance to cover the rental car. However, should an incident occur, filing a claim can increase the rate of the auto insurance or even cause coverage to be dropped. Rental Car Damage Protector, which can be purchased on a single-trip basis, offers up to $35,000 of coverage for collision/loss damage, a 24-hour assistance hotline, online policy modification, and online claim filing and tracking.
