Insurance requirements to rent a Barlow Jeep

One of the most confusing things about renting a Jeep from us is our insurance verification requirement. We require that you provide proof of your own full coverage personal auto policy. Barlow’s does not sell collision coverage, like big rental car companies do. You are responsible for any damages to the Jeep while it is under rental contract to you, so we have found that it is best for us all to make sure you have the coverage you need before you take the Jeep. We understand that insurance coverage is confusing. The information needed is not usually found on your standard-issue ID card—we need your declarations page from your policy. What we are looking for is that you have liability, comprehensive and collision coverage that will cover you in a rented automobile with a minimum replacement value of US$50,000.
Since this process can take time, we strongly recommend that you send us your documents by email in advance. This will both minimize the time it takes for you to pick up the Jeep when you get to the store, and avoid disappointment if you don’t have the coverages at that moment.

Another important point: as a rule, we can only accept commercial coverage for corporate rental contracts arranged in advance, with enough time to have the appropriate certificate issued to us.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions. Happy trails!
