Who Is Liable in a Rental Car Accident?

No two rental car accidents are the same. If you are determined to be at fault in a rental car accident, the outcome will depend upon what type of insurance you have. If the accident was caused by speeding, DUI, or any other activity that broke the law or otherwise violated the rental agreement, your claim might not qualify for coverage. 

You may also be liable for costs to the rental company, such as loss of use fees, diminution of value of the car, and administrative expenses. Depending on the rental company’s agreement, you may be responsible for these additional funds. 

Even if you are not at fault, the rental car company may not want to wait for the claims process to finish to repair its vehicle and may charge you for repairs. In this case, you may have to file a claim against the other driver’s insurance for reimbursement. 

Rental Car Insurance Options and Types of Car Insurance for Rental Cars

Several types of insurance may come into play when renting a car. These include the insurance you purchase from the rental car company and the insurance you already carry. 

Rental Car Insurance

Credit Card Insurance

Some credit cards cover certain types of damage to rental cars. However, they often only cover damages and do not include liability coverage. They may also only cover a certain dollar amount.
