You may have a right to a replacement car
Most Australians don’t know that if you’re not at-fault in a multi-vehicle accident, you may be entitled to a rental car with the rental costs recovered from the at-fault party, or more typically their insurer, whilst your car is repaired or claim is settled.
4 Simple Steps
Do You Need To Have The Hire Car Option With Your Insurance?
If you’re not at-fault in a multi-vehicle accident, you do not need hire car cover in your insurance policy to take advantage of an accident repair rental car.
Specialists like Right2Drive will give you a like-for-like car and recover the rental costs on your behalf, with your assistance, from the at-fault party.
If you aren’t eligible for an accident repair rental car e.g. you were at-fault, this is the time that the hire car option in your insurance is required.
Can I Choose My Replacement Car Provider?
Yes, if you’re not at-fault. Regardless of what your insurer may say, you have the right to choose where you get your replacement car from.
Why is this important?
Well, not all providers recommended by insurers are the same. Some won’t deliver the car to you, some will charge an insurance excess, some will require a bond and some don’t even provide like-for-like vehicle replacement.
