Renting a car while your car
is being repaired due to an accident can run you at least $200 a
week. Many auto insurance companies offer rental car reimbursement
as an optional auto insurance coverage. This coverage helps pay
for your rental car expenses if the insured car is being serviced
or repaired due to a covered loss. The extra fee for rental car
coverage is usually small but it can really help if you will need
to rental a car. Car rental coverage typically will reimburse for
your costs of renting a car from a rental agency or garage –
up to your coverage limits.
Some auto insurance companies may allow you to use the rental car
coverage if your car is stolen. Check with your auto insurance agent
or auto insurance company on the specifics of rental car coverage.
