I have insurance for my own car but will Hertz rental make me pay for their auto insurance? Can i just say I already have insurance even though I don'-t know if mine will cover me in case something happens? I have the least amount of coverage you can get in Mass and I use Commerce Insurance.

State minimum coverage means you will be covered for other peoples' damages if you cause an accident, but you will not be covered for damage to the rental car itself. Most of the time the rental insurance is just a moneymaking scam. But sometimes accidents happen, and if you don't have the insurance then you will be personally liable for 100% of the damages to the rental vehicle.

Most car insurance companies cover the person, so you're covered by your insurance in a rental. They will probably ask for a copy of you POI card. But, when you sign for a rental, somewhere in the fine print is a clause that you personally are responsible for any damage to the rental.
