Florida’s theme parks, stunning beaches and creative hot spots offer visitors the vacation of a lifetime. With a car rental in the Sunshine State, you can easily explore the delights of its coastal cities as well as travel inland to explore the semi-tropical wetlands and parks. Floridians are known for their laidback sensibility and knowing that you are protected can also help you to relax and have a stress-free vacation. Read on to find out details about your protection options in Florida, from required coverage to optional extras that can help you in the case of an event.
YOUR COVERAGE OPTIONS FOR RENTAL CARS IN FLORIDA
REQUIRED COVERAGE: LOSS DAMAGE WAIVER (LDW) INCLUDING THEFT PROTECTION AND SUPPLEMENTAL LIABILITY INSURANCE (SLI)
A Loss Damage Waiver including theft protection and Supplemental Liability Insurance are already included in your basic rental rate with Sixt in Florida. The LDW comes with a $0 deductible while the SLI covers you for up to $1 million in damages to a third party per accident.
COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE: PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE, ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE PROTECTION AND EMERGENCY SICKNESS PROTECTION
These extra protection options can be added to your Sixt car rental deal online or at the branch when you pick up your vehicle. The personal accident insurance is a great way to protect yourself financially in case of an accident. Roadside assistance protection gives you 24/7 breakdown assistance for a wide range of common events that can result in a car becoming immobile. Our emergency sickness protection covers you or your passengers if you get sick while on vacation, securing you against costly medical fees.
LIMITATIONS OF COVERAGE
In Florida, as in all US states, your insurance is limited to your territorial restrictions that usually include the state you pick up your vehicle in and the surrounding states. A full list is available in your rental information online, where you can also find out more about the types of breakdowns that are covered by roadside assistance protection. You should also know that you can only order roadside assistance or make a claim through our Sixt 24-hour Roadside Protection. The emergency sickness protection only insures you for covered illnesses. To find out more please ask at your pick-up location.
