Here’s a tip to avoid a common claims frustration – determine the value of Rental Reimbursement coverage before you are involved in an accident.
What is Rental Reimbursement? It’s an optional coverage on your auto policy that helps you pay for a rental car in the event need one due to a covered loss, and it usually costs only a few bucks a month. Now just because it’s inexpensive doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone.
Consider your individual situation. If you were involved in accident today do you have a replacement vehicle available, or would you need to rent a car to get to work in the morning? The answer to that question likely determines the value of Rental Reimbursement for you.
The main thing is to make an informed decision prior to needing the protection – that way you can avoid the frustration of paying both your deductible to repair the car and the rental cost to temporarily replace it out of pocket.
