Being in a car accident produces enough emotional and physical pain without the added stress of having to find a vehicle to rent. If your vehicle is damaged in a car accident, it may be days, weeks, or even months before it can be fixed and back on the road. Use these tips when renting a car after a car accident.
Insurance can make a big difference in the cost of your rental vehicle if you have rental reimbursement coverage. This coverage is usually optional but can help you pay the cost of a vehicle rental while yours is being repaired or if you’re waiting to get covered for a loss. There is generally no deductible for car rentals after a covered accident, but some limitations may exist.
It’s important to speak with your insurance agent regarding the use of your rental car. Are you covered in the event that the rental car becomes damaged? Is additional insurance available for rental cars for these types of circumstances? In some cases, liability, collision, and comprehensive coverage may extend to your rental vehicle.
