It depends on the car rental company and the type of insurance you sign up for. The LDW (Loss Harm Waiver) typically covers the car for most harm situations without a deductible or in some cases a petite deductible (up to $100). Check the fine print or ask the rental agent about deductibles in case of harm.
If the other driver is at fault is your deductible applicable to repairs and can you get a rental if there’s no initial coverage for rental?
Can a friend drive your car without you paying for extra coverage?

If the at-fault driver has total coverage who pays for a rental car?
In North Carolina if you have liability coverage only and you harm a friend’s car while driving it with their permission are you considered an uninsured driver by your friend’s insurance company?
No. If you are driving a vehicle with someone’s permission, they assume the risk of letting you drive it and therefore their insurance company also assumes the risk. Under the policy contract, you would be considered an ‘insured’ because you had permission to use the vehicle. If you were responsible for the harm to your friend’s vehicle and the accident was your fault, the only coverage to file would be Collision Coverage. .
Uninsured motorist is a coverage that would pay for damages to your friend’s vehicle if you had been involved in a hit and run accident in which the unknown driver is at fault or if the other driver is known, is at fault and does not have insurance.
Who regulates car rental companies?
What are the risks of only having liability coverage on your car?
When you carry liability coverage it helps to protect your assets (including individual funds, investments, real estate, etc.) if you should become liable due to any auto accident you are involved in. It will only protect you up to the thresholds and specifications in your insurance policy. .
It will not cover replacement costs to either repair or substitute your vehicle regardless of who is at fault. For thisyou need comprehensive coverage. If the fault can be contributed to the other driver, you may be able to recoup some or all of the repair and/or replacement costs of your car. This will depend on whether the other driver has auto insurance, what limitations and specifications are in their auto insurance policy and how fairly their insurance company will treat execution of reimbursement to the not at fault driver..
Liability insurance will not provide you with a replacement vehicle should your car be too bruised to drive and need to be repaired. This is covered by rental insurance. If you are not at fault, you may be able to have this provided by the at fault driver based on the same confinements in the last paragraph..
Your liability insurance will also not cover any medical expenditures incurred by you or your passengers. You and your passengers would be able to attempt to recover costs, etc. from the at fault driver’s auto liability coverage. Again, depending on the stipulations above. .
If you are at fault, your liability insurance is in place to help protect you against claims from your passengers and the other driver and their passengers for medical costs, equipment repair or replacement, property harm, mental anguish, physical conditions resulting from the accident, etc..
There are other smaller monetary types of coverage, depending on what your particular auto insurance company offers that may not be included under your liability coverage..
Generally, the accepted norm is that you should not bother purchasing comprehensive insurance once your vehicle reaches 5-6 years of age as the amount the insurance company will reimburse you for your older vehicle becomes less and less as time passes..
Additionally, you should have no need to opt for medical coverage if you are already insured by your health insurance. Before you make this decision, you should become familiar with your medical insurance and any limitations and exclusions that policy may contain as some insurers specifically exclude auto injuries.
Do I owe back payments for utter coverage since a tire on the highway caused 6000.00 harm and my insurance company stated I only have liability even however there is a lien on the car?
No you don’t owe any back payments to the insurer for coverage you never had. If you only purchased liability then they will not be paying for the harm you described. .
It is not a good idea to expect your insurer to have psychic powers when it comes to the coverage you need. They were not present when you signed you financing contract. .
Your Automobile finance contract required you to obtain total coverage. It is your job to do so. Your financier does have the right to repossess your vehicle if you fail to maintain the type of coverage you agreed too in your finance contract..
If you are fortunate enough to have an insurance company that is willing to retroactively provide you with comprehensive coverage then that insurer does have the right to expect you to pay for that retroactive coverage.
Why do car rental companies sell their cars?
What I heard is that they don’t want to deal with cars older than 3-4 years because they’ll have to pay for repairs. Therefore, the only way to always have fresh cars is to sell the old ones. .
Rental companies must circulate 1-2 years to keep current with what the manufactures make. All rental compaies MUST purchase a certain amount of Fresh manufactured cars- there fore they must get rid of the ‘older ones’ to dealerships to make room for that fresh stock. To re-coup the purchase costs, the sell the higher miles ones (typically 10-40k miles). (about 50-70% of cars you see at dealerships are purchased rental cars).
As for ‘not wanting to pay for repairs’ …. rental companies DO make repairs. The ones they do not is if the total estimate of the harm exceeds the value of the car..

Is insurance company responsible for total coverage insurance on rental?
EXTRA insurancethat you have a choice of taking or opting out of when you sign the rental agreement (by checking and initialing the correct boxes) has been a confusing part of renting for years. It’s abig money maker for the rental companies , but it’snot always a rip-off . They will attempt and get you to get extra individual liability,…extra propertyliability coverage,…a something called CDW. .
Very first, each company must carry liability for their cars that they rent out in every state. So if you’re in an accident and it’s the other guys fault, his/rental company pays harm. If it’s your fault, the rental company pays the other guys harm, but not the harm you’ve done to the rental. .
2nd, basically same for private libility, except if it is your fault, the rental co. individual liab. insurance pays injuries. .
Third, always ckeck your own auto policy and credit card agreement (the card used to rent the car), because many times one or the other may suggest insurance coverage on your rental. THEREFORE Iusually tell people to skip the extra insurance suggest by the rental company. They charge per day per type, usually over $Ten.00 each. By the week that VERY expensive. .
Final Significant note: I’ve rented a lot of cars and have figued out that the CDW is worth having….WORTH EVERY PENNY. In the very first scenierio, if it’s your fault, and your credit card provides nothing, or you’re using a VISA Debit card….you will owe that rental company ONE car, just like you left the lot with . This is where COLLISION Harm WAVIER (CDW) comes in. (sometime called by a different name). You pay $11 – $ 16 a day extra, EVERYTHING is covered……scrape,.dent,.burn crevice in the seat,. food/drink spilled on carpet,.kids write on interior with majic marker….you name it and you DON’T OWE THEM A DIME. ANDif you crash it, they give you a brand fresh one to finish your excursion!
