Save money on car rental insurance by checking with your regular insurance & credit card companies – you may already be covered.

Many car insurance policies cover you in any car you drive, including rentals. And some credit card companies include car rental protection when you pay with their card. Additional insurance purchased at the rental counter can double the cost of your rental, so be sure to find out if you are already covered. Even if you are, though, find out specifics on what is covered in the case of an accident, theft or other damage, to make sure you won't be gambling with huge expenses. You can start by checking this chart from but confirm with your card and personal auto policy to be sure.

Good point!
This is so true. I've saved hundreds of $$$ by bringing my personal car insurance info to a rental agency and NOT buying their extra cover. (Just make sure you know the finer points of your policy).
