Accident Car Hire FAQs
Why choose No Birds for an accident replacement vehicle?
Car accidents can usually leave your car out of action for weeks. Our 7-day+ rates with zero damage excess are the cheapest in the market, giving you peace of mind when you need it most.
Do you offer rental cars to anyone or your customers only?
Clients need to book with us directly to hire a car after an accident. This keeps our costs down and eliminates commissions and the need for middlemen.
Does insurance cover the cost of car hire after an accident?
Insurance will often cover the cost of a hire car after an accident, but not always. If you are at-fault, your car insurance may cover a rental car depending on your policy. If you are not at-fault, you can generally claim your car rental costs from the at-fault party.
However, it is best to be mindful when claiming car hire after accident costs that the at-fault party may:
- Dispute fault
- Not have insurance
- Dispute the car rental cost as being reasonable
- There is normally a 3-7 day lag between incurring a Toll and the Charge.
It's better to keep the car rental costs low to improve your chances of recovery and to minimise your out-of-pocket if recovery fails.
Does the insurance company organise the hire car after an accident?
You will need to book your accident replacement car directly through us. Insurance companies will organise and recommend their preferred car rental supplier, however; you can use any car rental company - subject to reasonable cost. We do not currently have car rental arrangements with any insurance company.
Credit Hire companies, such as Acorn, generally charge up to 5 times our daily charges, but will handle the recovery process.
