Just scraped my rental car in France
How much will the rental car company get me for?

It’s a little bit dented near the tire

I’ve been to 5 body shops but I’m having a hard time communicating

Should I just turn it in, as is?

Thanks!!

re: Just scraped my rental car in France
Your credit card company may pay for it. Mine provides collision insurance automatically and covers everything the liability ins. does not cover.. I rented three cars in Europe in recent years, two with Sixt and one with Hertz. They go over them with a fine tooth comb. I brought them all back in perfect condition except Sixt was complaining that I scraped a hubcap (I may have bumped a curb in Mont St. Michel's parking lot). The manager came over and decided it was so minor they let it go. But they are very picky.

Always use your Amex when renting cars. Automatic insurance.

Go push it off a cliff and report it stolen.

Most rental companies mandate proof of coverage when renting internationally. Either through them, a credit card notice of coverage, or another insurer.

That's a good thing to know....extra rental coverage through a CC is a must-have for me.

I did it with a Capital One Visa business card. Liability insurance comes automatically with the rental car but collision does not. Some credit cards give you free collision if you use their card to pay for the rental car. We did it last year in Italy and this year in France and that is the way it was. Glad it worked out for you.

Nice. Any credit card worth a shite will normally include some type of rental car insurance.

I always thought that your regular car insurance will cover rental cars as well. I guess being in France this may be different.

I always get the throw the keys at them and walk away insurance when I'm in Europe just because of things that happen like this. It's about $20 a day. It was well worth it when I backed into a very old stone wall in a little town in Italy.

Good luck.

N. We checked that. Your regular car insurance does not cover rentals in Europe.
