How will I know if my car insurance covers rentals?

I’m visiting family at the end of the month, and I’ll need to rent a car. How can I check if my insurance already covers rentals?

Answer
You’re smart to be looking ahead to make sure you have coverage for your rental.
Generally, rental cars are covered with your liability or comprehensive coverage. However, there might be some limitations so it’s always best to contact your insurance company to get all the details.
If the car you’re renting is more expensive than your personal vehicle, it may be worth getting extra coverage from the rental company.
