Rental Cars and Insurance
When you have been hit by someone driving a rental car, you have different options for getting compensation for your losses. A number of different parties and types of insurance coverage could come into play after a rental car accident, including:
- Driver’s personal car insurance
- Rental car company liability coverage
- Credit card company
- Your own insurance company
- Other driver’s insurance
- Rental car company if it failed to maintain automobile
- Manufacturer of vehicle
What is a “Collision Damage Waiver”?
When you rent a vehicle from a rental company, they will offer you something called a “collision damage waiver”, for an additional charge. The collision damage waiver only applies to damage done to the rental car, and it essentially shifts most costs of repairing or replacing the vehicle off of you and onto the rental car company. The coverage does not cover injuries to the driver or passenger if you cause an accident, and it could cover things already covered through your own insurance policy or through the credit card you used to secure the rental car reservation.
