Being in an accident can be quite scary, and very inconvenient to say the least. This is especially true if your vehicle is your main mode of transportation, and your car is stuck in a garage for repairs. The next best thing then would be to rent a car until your vehicle is fixed. But we know that car rentals can cost an arm and a leg and is just an added expense you could do without.
This is why we have a ‘loss of use’ option which you can add to your policy!
The loss of use cover is an addition to your motor insurance policy. It allows you to get a replacement car while your vehicle is in the garage. This way, you do not need to worry about spending out of pocket for a rental, because one will be provided to you.
When you make a claim following your accident, also check the box for replacement car. A list of pre-approved car rentals will be provided to you. The number of days you get a replacement car depends on the options you chose when you applied for the loss of use cover.
It is very important to note that loss of use is not automatically incorporated into you motor vehicle policy. If this is something you are interested in, contact us so that we can add it into your current policy at a marginal premium cost.
