Does GEICO offer rental cars while my car is in the shop?
My car was damaged in an accident and is in the shop—but I still need a car to get to work. I have insurance with GEICO; is there any way that GEICO will provide me with a rental car while I wait for the repairs to be done?
“I’m so sorry to hear about your accident; I hope you’re all right! I am glad to say that GEICO offers rental reimbursement coverage as an optional policy.
While your car is in the shop, rental reimbursement coverage provides you with a rental car.
Keep in mind that this policy has daily and per-claim limits, meaning that a 25/750 policy will provide up to $25 a day in car rental reimbursement to a maximum of $750 (or 30 days).
If you want to add rental reimbursement to your policy but you want to make sure you’re getting the best deal on it, try using the Jerry app. We’ll get you personalized quotes from top-of-the-line providers so that you can make sure you’re getting the best deal on the coverage you need. If you do pick a new plan, we’ll help you with the paperwork. And the best part–Jerry does all of this for free.
Best of luck with the repairs and drive safely!”

Can I get free or almost free car insurance?
I've heard that you can get cheap or free car insurance if you demonstrate financial need. I'm a college student with a good driving record and good grades. Unfortunately, my job let me go due to the pandemic. Is there any way at all I can get free car insurance? And if so, how?
