Things to know when renting a car on vacation
Did you know that the Massachusetts auto policy extends coverage to a rental car when driven inside the U.S. and Canada? It does!
However, coverage will not transfer when renting a car outside the U.S. or Canada even to popular vacation destinations such as United Kingdom, Western Europe, Mexico, South America, Australia and Asia.
Also important to note, is that your selected policy limits and coverages specific to your individual auto policy transfer the same way when operating a rental car in the place of your primary vehicle. For example, if you have a $500 collision and comprehensive deductible; in the event of a claim while operating a rental car, the same deductible will apply. Keep in mind too, that the rental car extension benefit is written for the named insured on your policy and, not all household operators are protected the same way when operating a rental car.
Feel free to take the time and inquire about this benefit specific to your situation.
