American Auto Shield Vehicle Service Contracts provide rental car coverage from a licensed vehicle rental company. Many repair facilities have loaner cars or have a rental facility onsite. However, if your repair facility does not provide rental cars, contact your local rental car company and retain your receipt. Your Vehicle Service Contract provides coverage:

  • As soon as the repair estimate is received and coverage is determined
  • If your vehicle becomes inoperable and must remain at the repair facility as a result of an authorized mechanical breakdown or failure
  • If the mechanical breakdown or failure has been authorized for four (4) or more hours of labor


Please refer to your actual Vehicle Service Contract for specific coverage limits and conditions.


You must have an authorized and coverable claim to receive rental car reimbursement.
