Florida is the number one tourism state in the country, and many of those millions of tourists every year choose to rent a car. Unfortunately, being in an unfamiliar vehicle in unfamiliar territory is often a dangerous combination, which is why our beautiful state has one of the highest rates of auto accidents in the country. If you are hit by someone driving a rental car, there are a few things you should know.

What to do in the event of an accident

Regardless of who is driving what type of car, there are certain things everyone in Florida should do immediately after an accident and within the subsequent days:

While you are not required to purchase insurance from the rental company, it might be a good idea to do so. Insurance can cover car damage or injury, in the event that you are involved in an accident.

If you have auto insurance already, you may not need to pay for additional coverage from the rental company. Most personal insurance policies cover rental cars, as well. However, check your policy or call the company to confirm and to determine if there are any limits or exceptions – for instance, renting certain types of vehicles or renting for extended periods of time. You may also want to fill in any gaps in your personal insurance with rental insurance.
