If I hit a rental car, can I pay the damages out of pocket?

The other person’s car I hit was a rental. Because the damage is very minimal, I would prefer to pay out-of-pocket instead of going through insurance. However, I’m unsure how to go about this since I’ll be dealing with a rental company and not a car owner.

In this particular instance, it really depends on how the rental car company wants to handle the situation. I would recommend contacting the rental company to see what options you have. Good luck and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
