Who Pays for a Rental Car While My Car is Being Repaired?

Who Pays for a Rental Car While My Car is Being Repaired?If another party was responsible for the accident, the insurance company for the person who caused the wreck is required to provide you with the cost of a rental car for a similar vehicle. 
The At-fault Driver's Insurance Company
If the other driver is at fault, we will demand that the insurance company for the person who caused the accident to provide you with a rental car for the time needed to repair your vehicle. Sometimes, you must pay the rental car bill first, with reimbursement coming from the insurance company later.  
Your Own Insurance Company
If you have purchased rental coverage as part of your own auto insurance policy, your own company can typically provide you a rental quicker, and your insurance company would then seek reimbursement from the responsible person's insurance company.
