What does Supplemental Liability Insurance cover?

- Externally caused damage to the rental vehicle

- Damage caused by your rental vehicle to material property
Terms and conditions apply. Check the policy documents for full details.
Do I Need Supplemental Liability Insurance?
If you rent a car in countries such as USA and Canada, the Caribbean, Central or South America, third-party liability insurance can be just the minimum required by law. So, unfortunately, if you get involved in an accident while driving the rental vehicle in or through the countries previously mentioned, you can end up being legally liable to pay hugely costly bills in respect of third-party bodily injury and damage to property. For this reason, it's highly recommended that you have appropriate cover.
