If you rent a car similar in value to your personal vehicle, you probably have enough insurance. But if you decide to rent a luxury car and usually drive an old beater, you might want extra coverage. You can get a collision damage waiver (CDW) from the rental company, which leaves them responsible if the car is damaged or stolen. You may have rental insurance from your credit card company, too, if you decline the rental company’s waiver.
In addition to a CDW, rental car companies offer a few other types of insurance if you don’t have enough coverage with your Progressive policy. These include supplemental liability protection, personal accident insurance, and personal effects coverage. The insurance offered by the rental company often duplicates coverage drivers already have through health, life, and auto insurance.
