Do I have to pay for damages if I had an accident in an Enterprise rental car?
I recently rear-ended another motorist while driving an Enterprise rental car. I don't have insurance myself, but I bought the collision damage waiver, personal accident insurance, and supplemental liability. Do I have to pay for any of the damages?

“Even though you don’t have your own car insurance, you made a smart move by taking all of the options offered to you by Enterprise.
Unless you were under the influence during the accident or let someone else drive, you shouldn’t have to pay for anything except for the deductible (if there is one). “
