Transportation while your car is being repaired
If your vehicle can’t be driven, is unsafe to drive, or is being repaired as a result of a claim, you may qualify for a rental vehicle or reimbursement of public transit or taxi fares.
Coverage for rental cars and taxis
If you purchased
Loss of Use coverage, whether on its own or as part of the
RoadSide Plus package, you may be entitled to:
rent a substitute vehicle, or
- be reimbursed for taking
With Loss of Use coverage, you can start using substitute transportation immediately after your claim is accepted.
This coverage has
maximum per-day and total limits. Talk to your adjuster for more details.
If the other driver is at fault
If you don't have Loss of Use coverage, you would likely still be entitled to a substitute vehicle if the other driver is found to be at fault.
Keep your receipts. You will need them to claim the expenses.
