speaking of car rental places…..is it not their responsibility to make sure a person renting one of their cars has insurance or makes them buy their insurance? My son had this happen and someone hit him while driving a rental….will the rental place give him copies of all his rental records? no….and he cannot prove anything because his backpack with all important papers including his identity were stolen.

Subject: Re: Budget101.com : Re:How to Save MoneyWhat the rental car companies want to charge you for is their deductible with their insurance company. If their deductible is $1,000, which isn’t at all unusual, that is what they will charge you, unless you pay for their insurance — which is outrageous in cost, especially since all you are doing is buying coverage for their deductible.
Check with your auto insurance carrier — most of them treat rental cars as “temporary replacement vehicles” and cover you for damage to rental cars, up to $1,000.
