What is Rental Car Damage Protector?

Rental car insurance can be complicated, confusing and expensive, especially if you’re traveling overseas. That’s why Allianz Global Assistance offers a simpler solution: the Rental Car Damage Protector, which provides affordable primary coverage for covered collision, loss, and damage to the rental vehicle up to $40,000, along with 24-Hour Hotline Assistance. Here’s how it works.


There are almost too many options available when it comes to insuring a rental car. There is your personal car insurance, insurance that may be provided by the credit card you use to pay for the rental car, the various options the rental car company offers, plus other third-party insurance products.

You want to make sure you have all your bases covered in the event that something goes awry, but you also don’t want to overspend on rental car insurance. Right?

Oh, what to do…

Rental Car Damage Protector is specifically designed for this dilemma, providing car renters exactly what they need to feel confident they’re covered without overdoing it: a Collision Damage Benefit. This benefit can cover the costs associated with theft or damage of the rental car, up to $40,000, including ‘loss of use’ fees a rental agency may charge if the car can’t be rented due to repairs. It is available across the globe, with the exception of Israel, Jamaica, Northern Ireland and Ireland. Additionally, not all cars are eligible for coverage so remember to read your plan documents.

Rental Car Damage Protector is a cost-effective solution for the car rental worst-case scenarios that keep you up at night. With this plan in your pocket, you’ll be able to walk up to the car rental counter confident you have everything you need.
