Rental Cars - More Than Meets the Eye

Regular Price: $129.00

Special Price: $99.00

Add to Cart +

There are close to two million rental cars in the U.S.  People rent these cars, seldom with a thought about insurance coverages. Coverage questions about rental cars have to rank in the “top 10” questions customers ask. Probably the top question is whether to spend around $30 a day for the loss damage waiver, which you will see is not a “rip off” and can save customers a lot of money and problems after a rental car is damaged. Join us as David Thompson helps us with these questions and more.
