Rental, Replacement & Travel
Optional coverages can reimburse for rental, replacement, or travel expenses. Below are additional options available on the Farm Bureau Insurance Personal Auto policy.
Vehicle(s) may be endorsed to provide reimbursement for the rental of a substitute auto from a car rental agency or garage. The original auto must be unusable for more than 24 hours due to a loss (Comprehensive or Collision).
Rental reimbursement coverage is only available on private passenger autos, pickups, and vans. Limit options of $30, $50, or $100 per day are available to cover the rental fee expense. Coverage is provided for a maximum period of 30 days.
Replacement Cost Information
Replacement Cost Coverage pays for the cost of a new auto of the same make and model, with similar equipment as the damaged vehicle, if available. Losses caused by fire, theft or larceny, or vandalism will be settled at actual cash value.
The coverage is only available to the original owner of vehicles that are less than 3 model years old. Replacement Cost will automatically be removed at the first renewal after the vehicle is 3 model years old. Replacement Cost is not available to leased vehicles.
