How do I get a rental after a car accident?

February 15, 2023
You could be in a rental within 24 to 48 hours of an accident depending several factors. We'll break it down for you.

To obtain a rental, you will need to file a claim against the at-fault driver's insurance and check your insurance policy to see if you have rental coverage.

After an accident, insurance companies will conduct an investigation to determine who caused the accident. In the best-case scenario, the at-fault party's insurance company will accept liability right away and their insurance company will cover the cost of a rental vehicle.

More often than not, liability may be disputed. This means that one or both insurance companies need more evidence to determine who exactly caused the accident.

If this happens to you, you may need to use your own rental coverage on your policy to get into a rental car ASAP. If you don't have the coverage on your own policy or can't afford to pay for a rental out-of-pocket, you will have to wait until the at-fault party's insurance company accepts liability.

This also means that if you did not have rental assistance on your insurance policy and the other person was uninsured, you will be responsible for obtaining your own rental vehicle.
