I don't want to overpay for car insurance when I rent a vehicle on my upcoming trip to Nevada. How do I get the cheapest insurance?

Thanks for your question! If you’re going to be traveling and renting a vehicle, it may be a good idea to get a quote for non-owner insurance, which can cover you for liability and be a cheaper alternative to purchasing coverage from a rental car company. Non-owner insurance won’t cover any damage to the rental car, but you do have the option to purchase collision coverage through the rental car company at an affordable rate.

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👍
