easyway car rental cancun mexico

Recently we needed to rent a car.  Many of our forum users have recommended EasyWay over the years and so we thought we'd give them a spin.

We were then taken to their office which is a few minutes from the airport.  The office was not...

Do you really need insurance?

Posted November 12, 2014 by Kay Walten in Vacation tips

question marks in the sand

We get asked all the time: Q:  Do I really need to get the insurance on my car rental? A:  YES. This is why we recommend it based on our personal experience. You want the insurance because if there is a dent or something that happens in a parking lot, and it is not an "accident" you did not see anyone do it, etc.  you may be charged for the damage, and the car rental company will just charge you "$XXX.XX" amount.  Anxiety will be high because you are trying to catch your flight...
