Traffic accidents are not an easy subject, because no one wants to go through such an experience. However, sooner or later, you may be confronted with a broken bar, a scraped door, a broken mirror, or other problems. In situations where you are hit in traffic, it is important to know that you can benefit from a provisional, completely free car, using AMS Rent a Car. Here are more details. Not many drivers know this, but if you were hit in traffic, while your car is being repaired, you can use a rental car and the expenses are covered by the guilty RCA policy. This measure has been in place since 2016, but few people have turned to it because it has not been sufficiently promoted. AMS Rent a Car aims to help drivers know their rights better to enjoy the comfort of a car even when their cars are repaired. Here's how you get a free replacement car if you've been hit in traffic First of all, every driver is required to have Motor Third Party Liability Insurance (RCA). If you have been hit in traffic, the guilty insurance policy must compensate you in the form of replacing the damaged car. The insurance company is obliged, through Law no. 132/2017 which stipulates that the insurer RCA to repair the damage "representing a consequence of a damaged vehicle use, including temporary replacement vehicle, based on the option of the injured person."
You, as a disabled driver, can benefit from a 3-step replacement car as follows:
1. Open the damage file to the insurer. Upon opening the claim file you will receive a notice note; 2. Progame the intervention in service. With the note, go to the service unit to perform the repair of the car, establish together with the service date the start of the repair and request the repair estimate document; 3. Send your car rental company the required documents: copy of the discovery note from the insurance company, car registration certificate, ID, driver licence of the third party, police documents/amicable report and service estimate repair document to calculate the number of rental days you are entitled to FREE. You can use the rented car during the period when the damaged car can no longer be used from the moment the damages are found or the vehicle is repaired within the limit of the number of days calculated according to the repair fee.
• you do not have to pay anything if the rental company is authorized and cooperates with the insurer in the "direct settlement" system; • establish with the rental company what happens if the insurer does not accept the total or partial payment of the rent; • check with the rental company if there is any guarantee, franchise or additional cost if the rented vehicle is damaged; • establish with the rental company what are the conditions and additional costs if you wish to extend the rental period;
• this measure does not aply for Total Losses.
If the insurance company has any unjustified delay, you may request the payment of the indemnity for the non-use of the car, from the time the claim was exceeded and until the date of its completion.
