  • Straightforward claims process. This provider offers a quick, hassle-free payment system. According to RentalCover.com’s website, 95% of claims get approved “without question”. What’s more, payment is completed quickly by electronic transfer.

Before signing up with RentalCover.com, it’s important to read the full terms and conditions of each policy. This is so you’re aware of any exclusions and understand what conditions and/ or limits apply to each accident linked to your vehicle.
