Rental Car Accidents and Insurance

​One of the first questions asked when renting a car is about insurance. Since rental cars are temporary, many opt out of purchasing additional insurance. When you rent a car, the rental company will typically offer you the option to purchase insurance coverage. If you decline the coverage and are involved in an accident, you may be held responsible for paying for the damages or injuries if you’re in an at-fault state like Arizona. 

If you want to purchase additional insurance from the rental car company for your own peace of mind, these are some likely options:

  • Collision damage waiver (CDW) or loss damage waiver (LDW): provides protection against damage to the vehicle in an accident or in the event it is stolen. 
  • Liability insurance: provides protection for damage or injuries to other people or their property while driving the rental car.
  • Personal accident insurance: provides medical coverage for you and your passengers in the event of an accident. 
  • Your own car insurance policy: coverage for rental cars may be included in your own policy. Review your policy or contact your provider to double check if you want to save on purchasing unnecessary additional insurance.
  • Credit card rental car insurance: some credit cards offer rental car insurance as a benefit to their cardholders. In order to be eligible for the rental car insurance offered by your credit card, you may need to use the card to pay for the rental car in full and decline the rental car company’s insurance coverage.
