MIT strongly encourages you to use MIT’s partner car rental agencies which provided volume based discounts and insurance on vehicles for MIT travelers. The use of these agencies will serve to mitigate MIT’s financial risk associated with automobile accidents and losses including theft of the vehicle.
When traveling domestically, Travelers should under no circumstances purchase insurance offered by car rental agencies when booking a rental car. When traveling internationally, including Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean Islands, travelers SHOULD purchase the insurance under all circumstances.
