MasterRental Insurance Coverage

Evidence of Coverage

  • Pursuant to the below terms and conditions, when you rent a vehicle for thirty-one (31) consecutive days or less with your covered card, you are eligible for benefits under this coverage.
  • Refer to Key Terms for the definitions of you, your, we, us, our, and words that appear in bold and Legal Disclosures.

A. To get coverage:

The rental vehicle must be rented primarily for business purposes, and You must initiate and then pay for the entire rental agreement (tax, gasoline, and airport fees are not considered rental charges) with your covered card and/or the accumulated points from your covered card at the time the vehicle is returned. If a rental company promotion/discount of any kind is initially applied toward payment of the rental vehicle, at least one (1) full day of rental must be billed to your covered card.

You must decline the optional collision/damage waiver (or similar coverage) offered by the rental company when coverage is secondary.

You must rent the vehicle in your own name and sign the rental agreement.

Your rental agreement must be for a rental period of no more than thirty-one (31) consecutive days. Rental periods that exceed or are intended to exceed thirty-one consecutive days are not covered.

The rented vehicle must have a MSRP that does not exceed $50,000 USD.

B. The kind of coverage you receive:

We will pay for the following on a primary basis:

  • Physical damage and theft of the vehicle, not to exceed the limits outlined below.

  • Towing charges to the nearest collision repair facility.
  • Theft or damage to personal effects in transit in the rental vehicle or in any building en route during a trip using the rental vehicle. You must first file under other applicable insurance (e.g., home or business), and then we’ll cover whatever is not covered by your insurance under our Secondary Personal Effects Insurance. Maximum coverage per rental period is $1,000 per covered person, per occurrence. The total benefits per rental period cannot exceed $2,000.

This coverage is not all-inclusive, which means it does not cover such things as personal injury or personal liability. It does not cover you for any damages to other vehicles or property. It does not cover you for any injury to any party.

C. Coordination of Benefits:

When MasterRental is provided on a secondary basis and a covered loss has occurred the order in which benefits are determined is as follows:

  1. You or an authorized driver’s primary auto insurance;
  2. Collision/damage waiver provided to you by the rental agency;
  3. Any other collectible insurance;
  4. The coverage provided under this EOC.

If you or an authorized driver’s primary auto insurance or other coverage has made payments for a covered loss, we will cover your deductible and any other eligible amounts, described under the kind of coverage you receive, not covered by the other insurance.

Note: In certain parts of the United States and Canada losses to rental vehicles that are covered by your personal vehicle insurance policy liability section may not be subject to a deductible, which means that you may not receive any benefits from this program. Contact your insurance provider for full coverage details pertaining to your personal vehicle liability insurance policy (or similar coverage).

  • If the vehicle is rented primarily for business purposes or outside the cardholder’s domiciled country, coverage is considered primary coverage.

D. Who is covered:
