ATLANTA - Many of you know that your credit card often carries rental car insurance, but each card can provide a little bit different service.
Wallet Hub, a finance site, really crunched the data here on this. Fifty-seven percent of credit card rental car insurance doesn't cover all rim or tire damage. Nearly 62 percent will cover your vehicle for 30-plus days. And more than 17 percent penalize you for damage from gravel or unpaved roads. Many plans exclude cover on open bed trucks, antique cars and full-size SUVs.
Wallet Hub ranked about 25 cards for rental car insurance.
- All Citibank cards
- All Chase cards
- All Barclay cards
With any card read the fine print before you get to the customer service counter and feel the pressure to use the rental car company's insurance.
