Accident Replacement Vehicles
If your car is off the road due to repairs after an accident, Best Car Rental know how stressful this can be, especially if you need your vehicle on a day to day basis for your commute.
If you’re not at fault for the accident, you could be entitled to a replacement car with the rental costs covered by the at fault parties insurance.
It seems to be common knowledge around the world that replacement or courtesy cars are provided after accidents.
In the United States, insurance companies write this in their policies. However, in Australia, it seems to be unheard of, with most people hiring a rental car and footing the cost themselves.
Some insurance companies even encourage people to rent the car themselves and recover the costs at a later date.
How Does It Work?
Rental cost for a hire car can be quite costly, however, when you choose Best Car Rental, providing you’re not the one at fault, you won’t be required to pay any rental costs.
You’ll keep the replacement vehicle whilst your car is being repaired all the while being fully insured on the vehicle. Once you have your car back, we will recover the rental fees from the at fault party’s insurance provider.
Will I Pay Anything at All?
Although you’re not required to pay for the rental of your replacement vehicle, there may be some cost incurred whilst using the replacement car.
Excess charges are typically charged should there be any damage to the replacement vehicle. You may also be required to pay a deposit (refundable upon return) or leave credit card details.
