What does Visa car rental insurance cover?

Postby deepak.pedada » Tue Dec 27, 2011 10:59 am

Hi, I rented a car and while renting I gave them my Visa credit card. It got declined to I used my debit card.

Now I have been met with an accident and made my payment with my Visa credit card. Will their car rental insurance cover this damage?

Please help with suggestions.

Are you going through insurance or are you paying out of pocket?

A while back I had an accident, my co-worker accidentally hit my car. I was wondering the same thing too.

  • If you are going through yours or somebody elses insurance and just using your credit card as a deposit, then you are not covered.
  • If you are renting a car for personal use and you are paying the full amount with your credit card you need to call your provider to see what and how much is covered.
