Typically, a rental car is provided when either your car has to be repaired or is no longer drivable as a result of a car crash. The most common way to get a rental car is through your own insurance, through rental car coverage on your policy. You simply make a claim to your insurance company that there’s a need for a rental car because yours is either not operable, not drivable or in the process of being repaired, so you can’t drive it.
If you don’t have rental coverage on your policy, you have two options: You can ask the other driver’s insurance company to provide you a rental vehicle, or you can rent a car yourself and pay for it out of your own pocket, and seek that as one of the harms and losses that you want to recover from the responsible party when your case is ready to resolve.
