Carla partners with RentalCover for car rental insurance
Car rental companies often offer the minimum in terms of car rental insurance; the liability insurance. The insurance is not always mandatory in certain countries but is a big chunk of expense when you travel especially in unpleasant cases of an accident or theft. Without having an insurance for your rental car, you may sometimes find yourself paying out of pocket the cost of repairs of the rental car, which can amount to several thousand euros/dollars.
Car rental companies’ insurance options may confuse you. Especially, due to their sales target, the insurance options can sometimes be complicated and it may markup the price more than you expect.
Car rental companies’ insurance covers you in the event of an accident or damage to your vehicle. Basic, third-party insurance is included in the price of your rental, but it obviously does not cover all damages. It will include exclusively:
- the material damage caused to the third party and his vehicle
- the bodily injury caused to the third party in the event of an accident
