Yes, Geico offers rental car insurance. If you already have a personal auto policy with Geico that includes liability, comprehensive, and collision coverage, this insurance will likely extend to cover your rental car. If you only have liability insurance with Geico, physical damage to the rental vehicle will not be covered.
You can talk to a Geico customer service representative at 1 (800) 207-7847 to see if your personal policy will extend to your rental car. If you do not have sufficient coverage through Geico to cover your rental car, you can purchase insurance from your rental car company, or see if it is offered by your credit card company.
Geico Rental Car Coverage
Liability Insurance. Geico liability insurance will usually extend to your rental as long as you are driving in the U.S. Your personal liability insurance will pay for others’ medical expenses and repairs to others’ property resulting from an accident you caused in your rental vehicle.
Collision and Comprehensive Insurance. If you have collision and comprehensive insurance with Geico, this will typically cover any damage that occurs to the rental vehicle itself during your rental period. However, your Geico collision and comprehensive coverage limits may not be high enoughif you are renting a car with a much higher value than your personal vehicle and the car gets totaled.
Personal Injury Protection or MedPay. If you have personal injury protection (PIP) or MedPay through your personal auto policy, medical expenses for you and your passengers will be covered even after a rental car accident. If you do not have either type of coverage, you can purchase personal accident insurance through the rental car company.
Geico also offers rental car reimbursement coverage, which helps pay for the cost of a rental car while your personal vehicle is being repaired for a covered claim. If you add rental reimbursement to your policy, Geico will pay about $30 to $75 toward the cost of your rental, up to $2,250 per claim. You select specific rental car reimbursement limits when you purchase the add-on. For example, if you choose $25 per day/$750 per claim as your rental reimbursement limits, Geico will pay up to $25 per day but no more than $750 per claim for your rental.
