With the summer travel season heating up, countless consumers will soon face a question they have little idea how to answer: Would you like to purchase supplemental rental car insurance? To help travelers give a money-saving response, WalletHub released its 2017 Credit Card Rental Car Insurance Study, which compares the coverage that we automatically receive from plastic.
A few highlights:
- Best Credit Cards – Citi credit cards have the most favorable rental car insurance policies.
- Avoid Renting – A truck, open-bed vehicle, exotic/antique car, large van or full-size SUV if you want credit-card coverage, as many cards exclude them.
- Coverage Duration – Almost 39% of cards only cover domestic rentals for up to 15 days.
