What do I do if I am without a car after my accident and I need a rental car?

Rental car coverage is something you can purchase as part of your auto policy. It is an item of convenience that you will appreciate if you are involved in an accident. Many people do not purchase rental car coverage, and there is often confusion when it comes to paying for a rental car. If you do not have rental car coverage on your policy, you can still rent a car and seek reimbursement for that expense from the other driver or their insurance company.
