One of the most confusing purchases people make today is whether or not to sign that dotted line for insurance at the car rental counter and those who do sign it often pay 75 percent more than those who obtain a policy directly from ProtectYourBubble.com

One of the most confusing purchases people make today is whether or not to sign that dotted line for insurance at the car rental counter and those who do sign it often pay 75 percent more than those who obtain a policy directly from ProtectYourBubble.com.

The National Safety Council estimates there will be nearly 400 traffic fatalities and an additional 19,900 nonfatal disabling injuries over the Labor Day Weekend as 40 million drivers hit the roads and many of them are expected to be in rental cars. In fact, the U.S car rental industry saw record rental revenue of $22.4 billion last year, an 8.1 percent increase over 2010 and the cities where residents rent the most cars for long weekends are California, Texas, Florida, New York and Massachusetts.

While the majority of travelers choose to book travel plans online, many overlook car rental insurance until offered at the car rental facility. According to reports from Forrester Research Inc., travelers in 2012 will spend $243.7 billion in online booking and an estimated $341 billion in 2013. With such large expenditures in online booking, ProtectYourBubble.com is one of the first and only online protection retailers to provide travelers the opportunity to save some $25 per day compared to rental retailers.

ProtectYourBubble.com’s rental car protection premiums are $7.99 per day versus popular rental car facilities, which charge an average of $35 daily. With the average time to rent a car is for five days, this gives consumers a chance to save a considerable amount of money. Whether the rental car gets a minor scratch or is involved in a major collision, Protect Your Bubble provides $35,000 in collision coverage. And unlike other rental car insurance plans that make consumers take on the liability of filing under their auto policy first, Protect Your Bubble’s rental car protection plan serves as the primary coverage on the rental car.

In addition to $35,000 in coverage, consumers will benefit from a $0 deductible and $500 of baggage coverage. If for any reason the trip is cancelled and coverage is no longer needed, the amount paid for the insurance plan will be refunded back to the consumer. Purchasing a policy is easy and without pressure. Protect Your Bubble offers a convenient quote process, taking only a few minutes to buy and receive a policy, online or via mobile app.
