How Do I Get Rental Coverage?

Insurance companies offer car rental coverage for situations like collision repair. Although optional, this add-on to your new or existing policy can lighten the load you may experience following an accident or collision. If you don’t already have car rental coverage, you may be surprised at its cost-effectiveness. Typically, it will cost less than one day of out-of-pocket rental car expenses.

However, it’s critical to reach out to your insurance company for thorough information. They’ll walk you through the steps to take when your vehicle is being repaired at our collision center near Worcester, Auburn, and Shrewsbury, MA.

How Does Car Rental Coverage Work?

Rental car coverage is an enticing option for many drivers—but there are plenty of caveats. When selecting this coverage, drivers typically have the option to choose from a daily reimbursement limit, such as $25 per day and a total of $750 per claim. Each car insurer will offer its own rules and regulations, so read carefully as you’re selecting your options.

Perhaps the biggest caveat, though, is this: Your vehicle must be in a body shop as a result of a covered loss. What does this mean? You can’t use rental car coverage for things like routine maintenance, as a claim must first be filed. That being said when your vehicle is being repaired, most insurers offer immediate car rental approval to get you back on the road as you wait.

Schedule a Rental Car Through Us

When you book a repair through our collision center, you don’t have to go through a third party to secure a rental car. Rather, our on-site rental service lets you choose from a selection of our most popular Toyota models—like the Corolla, Highlander, Tacoma, and Sienna.
