Accident loan cars. What are they, what are the benefits and how can you get one?

Most people don’t know that you have the right to an accident loan car when you’ve been involved in a not at fault accident. This article is to help put an end to the uncertainty of accident loan cars, explain the benefits and more importantly, when you can apply for an accident loan car.

Firstly, one of the reasons why people may have not heard of accident loan cars is because it can be difficult to explain the concept in just a few simple words. Different terms have been used over the years including, “Accident Replacement Vehicles”, “Accident Repair Rental Cars”, “Accident Courtesy Cars”, to name just a few.

What are accident loan cars?

Accident loan cars are based on the concept of an innocent party having the right to claim consequential losses which have resulted from someone else’s negligence. In relation to a car accident involving more than one vehicle, the at-fault party, or the at-fault party’s insurer generally has an obligation to bear the cost of an accident loan car for the not at-fault party for the period that the not at-fault driver does not have use of their vehicle.
