For US citizens
Some US credit cards and personal car insurance policies do provide car rental insurance so please check with your credit card provider and personal auto insurance policy for details.

Visiting the US from another country
It is illegal to drive in the US without car insurance. Your travel insurance probably only covers the excess so check the fine print in your travel insurance policy.

For more information please see our U.S. and Canada car rental insurance guide.

Important:  Most airport locations, services are limited and restricted to deplaning passengers only. Customers must present current airline ticket or boarding pass at time of rental.
