Summer is in full swing! That means there are many trips to be taken by Americans all over the United States.
That usually means if you are planning a trip and you aren't flying, chances are you're renting a car to take on your trip.
It may seem easy enough to go in and rent a vehicle and have it ready for your trip, but always make sure you are truly covered in a rental vehicle.
How can you make sure you're covered?
- Make sure you have a loss-damage waiver. Just in case the vehicle is stolen while on your trip.
- Liability insurance is another important piece of coverage to have when renting a car. This is crucial should you be involved in an accident of some kind.
- Personal Accident Insurance is another key piece to remember when you are renting a car. This covers you and your passengers medical bills should either of you be injured in an accident.
- Personal Effects Coverage is the last key piece to have when renting a car. This covers any belongings that may be stolen.
With summer vacations on everyone's mind, it's easy to forget these crucial pieces of coverage when renting a vehicle. Make sure you're prepared.
Have a safe and fun summer! Remember. Stay safe out there and put the phones down when you're behind the wheel!
