Insurance companies sometimes have different names for their rental coverage. They may refer to it as rental reimbursement, loss of use, rental coverage or another name. Rental reimbursement coverage will help with the cost of a rental car as part of a covered auto insurance claim. It may not cover you for other reasons, such as routine maintenance on your car or for a vacation. Policies vary by insurance company and state. Refer to your own auto insurance agent for details on your coverage.
