The first covers you in the event of a collision, while the second covers any loss to the rental company.
Both kinds of coverage are a good idea, but not if they duplicate coverage already included in your own insurance policy.
Most insurance policies offer liability coverage to protect you if you injure someone in an accident. some also cover rental-car damage via comprehensive and collision coverage.
