Accidents when driving a rental car abroad

Accidents when driving a rental car abroad

What to do if you have an accident abroad? Will you get insurance payments if an accident happens with a rental car?

No one is safe from accidents in any country. If you rent a car abroad, carefully read all the details of the local law and terms of insurance. Different countries impose different requirements to travellers.

The terms of insurance for an accident are different. The insurance against theft of a car or any car parts (for example, wheels) may be missing. Payment for damages can become a burden to you. So, be careful signing the contract.

If the accident was your fault, don’t panic and take into account some of the following points. First, don’t leave the scene of the accident in any case. If you run away and the police have to find you, you will be guilty of another offence. Don’t move your car from the scene of the accident. When the police arrive, ask for a copy of the protocol. With this document, notify the rental company about the accident within 48 hours. Discussing payments, keep in mind that the insurance doesn’t cover minor damages (broken lamps and windows, punctured tyres, etc.).

Of course, while figuring out the guilty side, you can’t avoid unpleasant conversations with the police and the insurance company. The above tips will help you get out of this difficult situation with minimal costs to cover repairing the rental car or other vehicles involved in the accident.
