How long you can keep a rental depends on a variety of factors. Those factors may include:
In many cases, the rental company or insurance provider will cover the cost of a rental car for the duration of repairs to your damaged vehicle, up to a certain limit. This could range from a few days to a few weeks or even longer.
If you need the rental vehicle longer than the time allowed by your rental or insurance agreement, you may need to pay out-of-pocket to extend the rental duration. If the damage to your vehicle is extensive, it may take longer to repair, which could result in a longer rental period.
Additionally, if the accident was not your fault and you are waiting for the other driver's insurance company to cover the cost of the rental, the length of the rental period could depend on how fast the other driver's insurance company processes your claim.
There are scenarios in which you may have to pay out-of-pocket to obtain a rental car, such as:
It's important to review the terms of your rental agreement or insurance policy to determine the specific length of time and dollar allowance per day you are entitled to for a rental car. Your rental or insurance agent will be able to answer questions or concerns about the terms of your rental car.
