What credit cards offer rental car insurance?

Are there any cards that offer rental car coverage? I am shopping for a new credit card. I rent cars a lot, so I'd like something with rental car coverage on it.

Answer
“Good for you for being so money-savvy! Having a credit card with rental car insurance as a benefit is a great way to save money if you rent cars frequently.
Most Visa and Mastercard credit cards offer rental car coverage as a card benefit. It typically covers damage to a rental car, allowing you to waive the rental car company’s collision waiver.
If you’re interested in getting a credit card that has rental car coverage on it, you’ll need to compare cards. Since most people need to rent a car when traveling, a credit card focused on travel may be a great place to start. You may be able to use your points towards another rental.
Several websites allow you to compare cards and see what you qualify for. Often you can compare credit cards like you would compare car insurance quotes online!
Once you find a card you like, be sure to read over the card benefits to ensure it includes rental car coverage.”
