When you are in any type of auto accident, major or minor, your car will most likely need to go to an automotive collision center to get fixed. Being without a car for even just those few days is extremely inconvenient, especially if you use your car on a daily basis. In most circumstances it will make sense to get a rental car to use until your car is fixed. Does your current auto policy cover car rental costs? If not, you should look into adding the inexpensive coverage onto your current policy.
Most car insurance companies will cover up to $900 per accident in car rental costs, with this coverage only costing about $50 annually. This type of coverage will take care of the cost of a rental car, while your car is getting fixed from an accident, vandalism, fire or even theft. Although there may be some limitations through your auto policy, like reimbursement amount and length of time they will cover a rental for, it’s still a very inexpensive way to stay protected.
