All Rental Car Agencies offer insurance options including collision damage waiver insurance (CDW) and theft insurance. Fees can vary depending on what type of coverage you purchase. You will have the option to decline the agency’s coverage, but you must attest doing so by signing the non-acceptance clause in the rental contract. Check your personal car insurance policy to see if your carrier covers rental vehicles. Some credit card companies also offer some coverage for automobiles rented with their company‚Äôs cards. It is prudent to take the time to read and understand the all facets of the insurance contracts.
