Insurance on a rental vehicle often doesn’t include liability coverage, which protects you if you injure someone else or damage another person’s property; instead it only covers physical damage to the rental vehicle. When you purchase traditional insurance on a vehicle that you own or lease, the policy will include coverage for both your vehicle and others’ property and injuries.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
