Should You Automatically Decline Those Insurance Options at the Car Rental Counter?

You’ve probably wondered about declining those rental counter options, like Collision Damage Waiver. This coverage protects you if you cause a crash in the rental car and it is taken out of service for repairs. When this happens you could be on the hook not just for the vehicle repairs, but the lost rental revenue for each day it is out of service. A lawyer friend had a client who wished they had not declined the coverage when they received a bill from the rental car company for over $20,000.

Does your high end credit card cover this and other such losses? Most cards do not cover CDW. Do not make the assumption yours does. Be very specific about the coverage involved when you ask them.
