    involved in an accident driving a rental car. I don’t have my own car insurance but purchased rental car insurance. As I don’t have an insurance at that time, there were no claims made on my insurance. If I am shopping for a new car insurance, how would the insurer knows about previous accident history and which driver is at-fault. What happens if I report it is not-at0-fault accident?
