FREE CASE REVIEW
A car accident is a stressful situation under any circumstances, and when an accident occurs in a rental car, the situation is made all the more complex. You might be on unfamiliar roads, in an unfamiliar vehicle, and unsure of where to turn for help.
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.
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.
When renting a car, the company will typically offer supplemental insurance. The types of insurance may include:
Your personal car insurance policy may offer rental car coverage as well. Always review your policy and check with your insurance company. If it does, you may be able to decline rental car insurance from the rental car company.
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.
