Insurance when Renting a Car:

You only need non-owners insurance. It is relatively inexpensive and lasts for the term that you have the rental car. Most rental companies provide this type of insurance as part of the rental package.

The renters responsibly varies from state to state. The rental company will offer you a protection package which includes LDW/ALI/ PEP/PAI

LDW/CDW= waiver the cover the cost of only the rental car

ALI= covers 3rd party damages

PEP= covers personal belongings, stolen damage in vehicle

PAI= Personal accident Insurance covers medical bills, in and out of the car

These are not included in the rental fees. Each one is separate and you are charged a daily fee which varies and the state and the type of vehicle you are renting.

Also just a little side note, if you rent a car and drive out of state and get into an accident out of state, your responsibility changes to that state's law regardless of where you actually rented the car.

If you already have full coverage auto insurance, there is no need to purchase additional insurance for your rental car. The only event where you would need the insurance from EZ Car Rental, was if you were to get into an accident, they would cover the cost of the time lost for the rental. If you don't purchase their insurance and get into an accident, you will have to pay for the days they are out money for not being able to rent the car out.

Auto Rentals and Auto Insurance CoverageUsually your standard lines car insurance policy does transfer when you rent a car.Limited lines policies generally DO NOT transfer to a rental car.It is always best to check with your auto insurance agent first, before you rent a car and assume you have coverage and to also find out if you have any applicable deductibles.An example I can give you is that when we vacationed in Hawaii and rented scooters, our auto owners insurance would not cover us because we were in the state of Hawaii, which had some type of exclusion. So, is best to check with your agent before you rent your transportation.

You do need to have insurance to actually purchase an auto. You will however need auto insurance to drive the car off of the lot. Insurance is also required prior to registering a vehicle.

Slashed tires coverageYou will need to file the claim under your Auto Insurance policy. Your homeowners insurance does not pay for car damage. That's what auto insurance is for.

When you rent a car from a business, they offer insurance directly through them. Of course, you also go purchase outside. Some of them are Esurance and Hartford Auto Insurance.

Yes, Just rent a car for the day and ask for the car insurance with the rental rate.

You do not need car insurance if you rent a truck but, you should have some sort of insurance. If you get hit or cause any damage you will be liable to pay money. There are many rental truck insurance options. If you go with Budget there is a variety of insurance options to choose from.

Umm... No... If your car has no insurance then then it doesn't have anyone to cover it... That's why you need insurance...

If you own a collectable car you will need auto insurance to make sure you are fully covered. A good place to get auto insurance is through Geico or American Collectors Insurance.

In the State of Texas, when you rent a car, rental insurance is not included. If you want to have the rental insurance it will come with an extra charge.

You can not. The insurance you purchase when you rent a car assumes that you already have a valid drivers license, otherwise you can not rent the car to begin with.

Not without insurable interest in a car. If you do not have a car, you do not need to have insurance. If you rent a car, you can get insurance for the rental, but that is a temporary policy. If you have permission to drive the car, you should be insured under the policy of the person from whom you borrowed the car.

When renting an automobile from Hertz you will be offered the opportunity to take out Insurance for the time that you will be renting the car. It is a good idea to do so since your own auto insurance may not cover specific damages or losses.

If you want to rent a car, you need to check with your own insurance provider and see if you are covered. If not, you can purchase the insurance from the rental company directly.

Yes, all you need is your drivers licence or permit in order to get an auto insurance.
