Planning to rent a car? Don't automatically opt to purchase rental car insurance if you carry full coverage on your auto policy. Chances are good the coverage will extend to any car you rent.

"Whether to buy coverage depends on whether you own your own car and if you have good coverage on the car," says Loretta Worters, spokesperson for the Insurance Information Institute.

Before renting, check with your insurer to find out what is and is not covered. Credit card companies also may offer rental car coverage, but it's important to know exactly what is covered and for how much.
