Rental car emergency preparedness action plan
It’s always important to plan for the worst but hope for the best. Accidents always happen when you least expect them, so it’s important to be prepared for anything while you’re on the road. Relax in knowing the steps to take in case of an accident involving a rental car.
What to do after you’re involved in an accident while driving a rental car
1. Contact your insurance provider to file a claim
This step should look familiar. Good news: it’s the same if you’re driving your personal vehicle or a rental vehicle. Contact your insurance provider who will walk you through the next steps. Additional accident insurance is available at the time of reserving your rental car.
2. Exchange information with other parties involved
If another driver was involved in the accident, exchange contact information and personal insurance information. Take pictures, and document events while the incident is fresh in your mind.
3. Contact your rental car provider
Alert the rental car company of the incident.
At Metuchen, we’ve got 30 years of experience in the car rental industry and are skilled at working with insurance companies. Should a personal vehicle need repair, we can provide you with an insurance rental car, so a small setback doesn’t hinder your daily routine.
