Have you always wanted to drive an exotic sports car for a few days? Maybe pretend to be James Bond and rent an Aston Martin sports car. Maybe go completely wild and get a Lotus or Lamborghini for a few days, or maybe even something less exotic but definitely sporty for a special occasion like the new Corvette.
Like almost anything else in today’s world that has demand, you can rent almost any type of sports car you want in many places. Usually these are in big cities, and in cities like Orlando, Las Vegas, Chicago, or Los Angeles, you’ll have a little trouble choosing between several agents who can put you in a hot sports car for a few days so You can enjoy yourself.
But before you get too excited, one of the first calls you’ll want to make is to the auto insurance company you use to insure your personal car. Tell them what you plan to do and find out if you have enough coverage to adequately protect you. You may be a perfectly safe driver, but other drivers gawking at the sleek sports car you’re driving might gawk too much and crash into you, and you’ll want to make sure you’re protected.
Yes, you can almost always get insurance from a car rental agency, but there are good reasons that you want to check with your own auto insurance company first. That’s because you may already be covered, and why pay twice for insurance? Also check your policy limit – if you’re only covered up to $50k and you’re driving a $200k vehicle, it’s going to cost you a lot if something bad happens. If you get insurance from a car rental company, you’re more likely to pay an additional $50 a day or more to have that insurance.
But once you have that detail, the sky is the limit. Maybe to impress the new person you’re dating, or maybe to surprise your wife on that special occasion when you drive into your driveway in this exotic sports car. You’re working hard and you’re not getting any younger, so decide what you want to do and give yourself permission to do sports car rentals. Find out what’s available in your area and have fun.
