Renting a car in Scotland: Should I buy additional cover?

By | September 23, 2008

I’m in Scotland right now and thoroughly enjoying my trip. To make things different, I rented a car for my travels. It was a good choice but it meant a lot of driving.


When I rented the car I was asked if I wanted additional cover but I wasn’t able to check for other companies providingcar insurance online so I couldn’t compare the rates. I declined this time. I suppose it was a good choice, but it could have incurred further charges if I had been involved in an accident.

Do you ever rent cars? Do you always get the additional insurance added or not?
