Do Chase Sapphire Preferred Authorized Users Get Primary Rental Car Insurance?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Sumeet, commented:

Do authorized users also get full car rental insurance benefits like the primary card member on the Chase Sapphire Preferred?

One of the perks you get with Chase Sapphire Preferred card is primary car rental insurance.  When you’re renting a car insurance costs add up quickly.  While this is NOT comprehensive coverage, it will still save you money when you rent a car.

And authorized users are covered too!

You can currently earn 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you sign-up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card and spend $4,000 on purchases within the 1st 3 months of opening your account.  This is the highest bonus I’ve ever seen for this card.
