1. Liability Coverage

This is the policy of the at fault driver. It will pay for your rental car while your car is being repair. The easiest way to get into a rental car is to let the insurance company arrange the rental car for you. If you do, they will pay the rental car company directly and handle all the paperwork. But, the insurance company will not pay for extras like rental car insurance. It’s important to note that liability coverage does not cover your rental car if the vehicle is declared a total loss. As soon as the insurance company declares your vehicle a total loss, it will stop paying for your rental car. So if you believe your car will be declared a total loss, you need to start looking for a new car as soon as possible.

2. Rental Reimbursement Coverage

Rental car reimbursement is paid through your insurance. It pays for a rental car only when your covered by comprehensive and collision coverage. Your insurance company won’t pay for the rental car indefinitely. Normally, there is a per-day and per-accident limit. For example, your coverage may have a limit of $25 per day or $750 per accident.
