A Rental Car When Your Car Is Being Repaired
If your car becomes inoperable due to a covered loss and you need to rent a substitute, transportation expense coverage pays the cost of the rental car up to the policy limit for this coverage. Transportation expense coverage, also called rental reimbursement coverage, is available only if you carry both comprehensive and collision coverage.
Insurance Coverage availability varies by state.
How Transportation Expense Coverage Works
If you opt for transportation expense coverage with your auto insurance policy, the coverage is typically subject to daily limits. You can choose your daily limit based on how much you think it will cost to rent a car in your area should your vehicle become temporarily inoperable after a covered loss.
