What happens when you crash a rental supercar?
If the rental car’s bodywork gets damaged during your rental, your Collision Damage Waiver will cover it. It won’t cover damage to other parts of the car, though, and you’ll have to put some money towards the cost. Most of the time, they’ll just take this out of the deposit you left when you picked the car up.
What happens if you have an accident with a rental car?
