Rental Company

When renting a vehicle from a rental company for a business trip or other school-sponsored activity, do not purchase the insurance coverage offered by the rental company if traveling in the U.S., Canada, or U.S. territories. Rental insurance coverage is included in Southern’s commercial auto insurance policy.

This coverage is to be used for company business only. This means that if you are renting a car for a business trip, but are planning to use it for a couple days to visit family, sightseeing, etc., then you should purchase separate insurance for those specific personal days. You will not have company coverage for accidents occurring during personal travel time.

Also, keep in mind that you can rent vehicles from the Transportation Department. This is a great way to keep the money within Southern.
