Accident loan cars. What are they, what are the benefits and how can you get one?

August 08, 2019

Yes, I am talking about those three words that around 70% of Australians have no idea they have a right to… Accident, Loan, Cars. Well, I am here to put an end to the uncertainty of accident loan cars, explain the benefits and more importantly, when you can apply for an accident loan car.

Firstly, one of the reasons why people may have not heard of accident loan cars is because it can be difficult to explain the concept in just a few simple words. Many different businesses have used different names over the years including, “Accident Replacement Vehicles”, “Accident Repair Rental Cars”, “Accident Courtesy Cars”, just to name a few. After speaking with our customers, we believe that “accident loan cars” best describes the category and what we offer to approved not at-fault drivers that are involved in a car accident involving more than one driver.

 

What are accident loan cars?

Accident loan cars are based on the concept of an innocent party having the right to claim consequential losses which have resulted from someone else’s negligence. In relation to a car accident involving more than one vehicle, the at-fault party, or the at-fault party’s insurer generally has an obligation to bear the cost of an accident loan car for the not at-fault party for the period that the not at-fault driver does not have use of their vehicle.

 

Who provides accident loan cars?

Accident loan car companies have existed in Australia for over 20 years and often operate as a stand-alone business, not part of an insurance company. Right2Drive has been in operation for over 6 years in Australia and has quickly become one of Australia’s leading providers of accident loan cars. We pride ourselves on delivering five-star service and were awarded ProductReview.com.au Award for 2019 for exceptional customer service.
