Money's tight and I'd rather not pay for insurance from the rental car company if I don't have to. What options do I have?

Thanks for your question! Typically, your personal auto policy will extend to a rental car for you. Sometimes, depending on how old you are, you may need to purchase extra coverage. The rental company may require you to buy this extra coverage if you’re under 25.

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👍
