“The rental car company will offer rental car insurance at a daily rate. The liability insurance will be listed separately from the collision insurance, and it isn’t always the cheapest option available.
If you have credit cards, check with the credit card companies to see if they offer a rental car discount or free car rental insurance. You usually need to pay for the rental with the credit card in order to qualify for this benefit.
Your employer may also offer rental car coverage or rental discounts. Check with your HR representative.”
