If you’ve been in a car accident that leaves your car damaged, one of your first concerns after addressing injuries is likely how you’re going to get around while your car is being repaired. Unless you live in a big city with easy access to public transportation, your post-accident transportation will likely be a rental car.
But how do you rent a car after an accident? And who is going to pay for it? Your auto insurance company is only going to provide you a complimentary rental car after an accident if you’ve got rental reimbursement coverage as part of your policy. If you don’t, that rental car expense is on you. Borrowing a car through a car sharing service like Avail is an affordable option if your personal policy doesn’t cover rental coverage.
