    Travelers picking up their rental car in Lyon should know that it is required by law for all drivers to carry unlimited third party liability insurance. With Auto Europe, the cost is already included in our daily rental rates. This protects travelers from injury, death, and property damage to others while behind the wheel of their car. While some major credit cards do offer car rental insurance to card holders, not all car rental suppliers will accept this. Be sure to check with Auto Europe or your supplier before your trip to know what you need and where you are purchasing your coverage.
