Memorable Story – Dennis Ricchio was in Toronto for his daughter’s wedding. The groom’s brother rented a Ferrari 360 for the weekend. Dennis was asked to return the car and noticed that it was damaged, it seems the car sits too low for parking curbs!

Before renting, check to see if your policy protects you for this too.
