Do you need car insurance to rent a car in Massachusetts?

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.

Great question and analysis. I wish more people would look at the laughable state minimums and recognize that they aren't enough.The answer depends on what you have for answers to protect, but I normally suggest a minimum of 100/300/100 for liability limits and 50/100 for uninsured and underinsured...

$10 over a six month period can happen for no reason at all. If you stay with the same company after a while they will probably give a discount for that. Gold status could be after 1 or 2 years and platinum after 5 years or something like that. Your insurance agent is right, that is a good...
