Foreign Auto Rental Insurance16 May 2010

While driving in a foreign country, make sure you have adequate insurance coverage for your rental vehicle.  Insurance requirements and costs vary greatly from country to country.  Don’t assume your own auto insurance and/or credit card provide adequate coverage without confirming the details.  There is no need to be over insured and pay unnecessary costs, yet it is important to have sufficient coverage in case of an accident – whether or not it is your fault.  Many rental companies in Europe have a high dectuctible for theft and property damage, but you can pay an additional premium (less expensive if done before you leave) to get this reduced or waived if you are not comfortable with that amount of monetary exposure.
