how does the sli affect the application of your auto or general insurance policy?
Your personal insurance policy that provides coverage for your own automobile or another personal policy may provide additional coverage and, to that extent, SLI may provide duplicate coverage. whether, to what extent and to what extent your own policies apply can only be determined by checking the terms of the policies themselves, as these terms vary frequently. however, the protection provided by sli (if sli is accepted), like the protection limits of the cheap rental agreement, is paramount to its own policies. This means that before their own policies were applied to pay a claim, the protection of $1,000,000 (or the combined single limit of $2,000,000 in the following jurisdictions: california, florida, hawaii and new york) afforded by the combination of sli and the limits of the budget rental agreement would have been exhausted.
