Uheldigvis er det transaksjonskostnader overalt når man reiser internasjonalt. 

Når man betaler et erstatningskrav ved pengeoverføring, vil bankene belaste minst 15 USD (eller tilsvarende i din lokale valuta). Vi vil ikke belaste deg disse kostnadene, om vi må betale et gebyr til banken. Om banken skulle belaste deg med et gebyr, vil vi dessverre ikke kunne dekke kostnaden.
Det er flere hensyn å ta når man sammenligner valutakurser, og det er ulike måter for å beregne de. La oss se på et eksempel:
  • Mark er fra Storbritannia. Han ble belastet 500 euro av utleiefirmaet for en ulykke i Frankrike. Hans erstatningskrav på 500 euro ble i dag godkjent av RentalCover.com.
  • Mark vil få utbetaling i GBP.
Teamet for erstatningskrav hos RentalCover.com konverterer belastningsvalutaen (euro for Mark) til utbetalingsvalutaen (GBP for Mark) på bakgrunn av overføringskursene som er tilgjengelige på ulike plattformer for pengeoverføring. De er 3-5 % bedre enn kurser som tilbys av banker og 4-6% bedre enn hos vekslingsbyråer.

All claims must be submitted online - we recommend that you use a computer instead of a mobile phone for easier document uploading. Just enter your Reference Number (this ends with "INS" and can be found on your confirmation email).

After the protection is completed and the damage charge has been settled with the rental company, please submit your online claim and attach any supporting documents. You can click on the button below to get started.

Our Claims Team is here to help ensure that the claim process is as stress-free as possible
In the event of a breakdown or an accident, it’s important to ensure everyone is safe. Where possible pull over, turn on your hazard lights and get everyone to safety. You can then:

1. If applicable, collect the other parties' details including their:
  • Full name.
  • Address.
  • Licence number. 
  • Vehicle registration number. 
  • Phone number.
  • Email address.
  • Name of their insurance. 
2. Contact your rental company to report the incident. You can find their number on your signed rental agreement. They will instruct you on processes such as vehicle recovery or replacement, roadside assistance and, any charges you may incur depending on your country of travel.

3. Contact the police to report the incident. Keep documentation of this process. During the claim submission process you will be asked to provide details and documents to support your claim, e.g. police reports or written statements. This may also be a requirement by the rental company. To check if it is required by your rental company, please contact them directly.

4. After following the rental company's instructions and when your rental period is over and the final charges have been settled by the rental company, submit a claim with RentalCover.

If you were involved in a multiple-vehicle accident, contact your rental company to see if they intend to refund those charges if you are found to be “not at fault”. Gather documentation explaining your rental company’s process and rules in this case, as you will need it during the claims process. Check your wording in your RentalCover Account for more information on how we handle "not at fault" accidents.
 
Do not arrange your own recovery or repair without the rental company’s knowledge as this may invalidate their rental terms and conditions. Charges for towing and vehicle relocation are covered by RentalCover. We do not cover "out-of-pocket" costs such as accommodation or phone calls.

When you complete your rental
Typically if you are travelling outside of the US, you will be charged an excess/deductible for the damages. Sometimes rental companies will charge you the full excess/deductible upfront and partially refund you later if the repair costs end up less than the excess/deductible amount. This helpful article explains what you can do if you don’t receive your partial refund.

After we’ve received all required documents and information our Claims team can begin processing your claim. Please allow time for our Claims Team to assess all the circumstances and evidence related to your claim. Depending on the country and complexity of the claim, it can take several days. Any updates will communicated via email, so please keep an eye on your inbox.

To help our team assess your claim as quickly as possible we ask all customers to provide the following documents using our online claims form. We need full information to assess your claim, so please attach any documents you think may be relevant to your situation.

If you have been involved in a multi-vehicle accident, please ensure you collect the other parties' details including their: 
  • Full name.
  • Address.
  • Licence number.
  • Vehicle registration number.
  • Phone number.
  • Email address.
  • Name of their insurer.
You will need to share these details with both us and your rental car company when you begin a claim.

The claims process is different for single and multiple-vehicle accidents, and it can also differ by country.

Generally for accidents where more than one vehicle is involved, an investigation usually takes place between your rental company and the third party’s insurer. Please share the details of your rental company as the primary protection provider to the third party. However, in the US and some other countries, the investigation is between us and the other driver's insurer.

Please remember for a successful claim you must ensure you have not broken any local laws or breached your rental agreement. 

For more information on the claims process, please read the wording in your RentalCover Account.
 

If you have a US rental with our “Supplemental Liability Insurance” plan, your claim will follow these four steps:

The insurer will issue the payment to the third party.

Please contact us if you have any issues with your claim. For more information about SLI please read this article.

If you make a claim, you may be required to pay an excess (also known as a deductible). An excess is usually an agreed amount or percentage that is subtracted from every covered claim event. For specific details about your RentalCover Protection and your excess amount, please check your RentalCover Protection documents. 

Excesses are usually part of most insurance products and help keep prices lower by having the RentalCover Protection holder absorb or contribute to part of the loss.

If applicable, your excess or deductible will be shown on your certificate.
If you receive a request for additional evidence related to a document you already provided, please check the email from the RentalCover Claims Team with the subject “We need your help”, to see what has been requested in order to progress with the claim assessment. This may include:
  1. An issue with your document file. Common file issues include formatting issues, documents that are blurry or hard to read and blank files. Please upload a new version of your document file and make sure it is clear and easy to read.
  2. Information is missing from your document. Our claims assessors need certain information in your document in order to verify the details of your claim. Please re-upload your document ensuring that it includes all the required information. This helpful article explains what information your documented evidence needs to include, based on your claim reason.
  3. The information in your document doesn’t match the information you provided during the claims process. Please ensure you upload the correct document to support your claim.
The biggest cause of delays during claim assessment is incorrect or missing evidence, without which your claim status will be changed to ‘pending’ or ‘closed’, depending on the time taken.
Before submitting a request for a reexamination, we recommend reading through your wording to understand what your RentalCover Protection covers. 

The RentalCover Claims Team does a thorough assessment of each claim based on the inclusions and exclusions outlined in your wording, the circumstances you describe in your claim information, and the supporting evidence you provide. If you have new evidence to support your claim, you can reply to any of our emails for a reexamination of your claim. 

In the email, tell us why you’d like to appeal your claim. Then attach any documentation that supports your appeal. Please make sure the documents you upload are high-quality and easy to read.
If you have already appealed your claim outcome and you’re still unhappy with our final response, the formal complaint process is outlined in your wording. You can find more information on how to file a complaint in your wording.
