What is Rental Car Reimbursement and How Does It Work?

Rental Car Reimbursement is a type of optional coverage that covers some of the cost of a rental car if you are in an accident that leaves your car undrivable. With rental car prices being at an all-time high, it is important to consider the benefits of rental car reimbursement.

How does it work? Depending on where you are getting your rental car from will depend on how fast your insurance company will be able to pay. Some insurance companies have partnerships with rental companies that provide a fast transaction while other companies may require you to send them receipts of the rental car used and then pay out the limit.

How much is a typical limit? With rental car reimbursement there is a daily limit and a total limit. an example of a daily limit could be $50 a day with a total limit being $1,500. These numbers will depend on the amount of coverage you want to buy.

Will rental car reimbursement cover me if my car breaks down? No, rental car reimbursement will only payout covered events like a crash with an insured driver. Think of rental car reimbursement as an extra tool to help you save money when in an accident.
