Renters wanting such coverage should check with their existing car insurance as their existing insurer may be able to add it to their regular yearly policy for a puny premium. This provides coverage from an insurance company that they know, instead of unregulated (from insurance standpoint) car-rental garment, which suggesting you may understand less.
Does homeowners’ insurance cover physical loss harm claims by car rental companies?
If you pay for the insurance or harm waiver on the rental car when you were not at fault can you get reimbursed for that expense If so how?
Yes, I am going on the following assumptions to response your question;.
You rented a vehicle and took out the harm waiver, (did you have insurance on another vehicle? If so that switches a few things) had an accident in this rental vehicle thatWAS NOT YOUR FAULT AT ALL ..
You (or the rental company) could file with the ‘at fault’ party. Some rental car companies will chose to use their own carrier for speed, so they can get that vehicle back on the road. In that example, (and evidently that is what happened) once the final payments have been made, their insurance company should file a subrogation claim against the at fault carrier, and recoup all money paid in the claim including the deductible you paid. And in turn will come back that to you. If the other party is not insured there will still be a subrogation claim, but this generally takes a lot longer..
Let me caution you tho’, this is under the assumption thata) there was absolutely no negligence attributed to youb) the ‘at fault’ driver had insurance. c) no dispute inbetween the carriers as to liablity..
You should be kept abreast of the investigation, and subrogation claim, if you have not been contact the insurance company that is treating the claim, if you do not have their information, call the rental car company and get it from them..
If you would like to provide me with extra details surrounding the facts of loss etc, perhaps I could be of greater assistance to you, and would gladly attempt…. Good luck !!
Where do you purchase inexpensive insurance for a rental car?
I haven’t heard of insurance companies having a policy that relates just for rental cars. My suggestion is if your individual insurance doesn’t not cover a rental car, to get it directly from the rental car company that you rent from..
Should you buy insurance for a rental car? No, if you already have insurance on a car you presently own, it will also cover rental cars
Do rental cars get stolen and if so do the rental companies have theft insurance?
Rental cars get stolen from customers all the time. If you were to accept the Lost Harm Waiver from most companies, the car would be covered, there is NO deductible. Now if you were to leave the keys in the car, or give them to someone and they took off with the car; you are out of luck..
This is correct. LDW/CDW (depends on the state) would cover the car as long as the contract was not violated and as long as it wasn’t stolen due to your neglect to protecting the car.
What is the insurance guidelines for a rental car?
Does your auto insurance extend to a rental car?
If you decline LDW at the rental counter and rely on your private coverages, you very likely would be responsible for paying your usual deductible if you were in an accident with the rental car. Also, a loss-of-use fee is not normally covered by private auto insurance policies. And, individual auto policies that extend collision coverage to a rental car may only provide a coverage limit equal to the value of your own vehicle. If the value of your individual vehicle is less than that of the rental vehicle, you could still incur some harm responsibility.

Do you need car rental insurance?
If you have liability insurance, you are covered, but only for liability. Liability insurance basically provides individual coverage for you while you are in a rental car. Your insurance company will cover any damages you cause to anyone else (property and injury) or any other vehicle, up to the minimum legal thresholds required by law or the thresholds on your policy,if different. It does not cover harm to the rental car..

Some credit cards will cover harm or theft to your rental car. The coverage and the coverage amounts will vary depending on the card issuer, so you should check cautiously to see if you would be covered adequately for the rental that you are looking to take..
You are not covered just by being a cardholder; you must use the card to rent and pay for the vehicle. Some credit card plans cover accidents only if the cardholder is driving, not the cardholder’s spouse..
Check to see if the coverage from your credit card would be considered primary or secondary. For some credit card companies, its’ coverage becomes primary only if you don’t have any private collision insurance of your own, or would only kick in after you had tired the thresholds of your individual coverage. Most card issuers do not provide coverages for more expensive rentals, or specailty vehicles. It is necessary to call them, or check your credit card benefits package, to see which rental vehicles they cover..
The bottom line is check into everything!!If you don’t need to purchase the optional coverages at the rental counter, you will certainly save money, but only if you are truly covered.
