I apologize if this is in the wrong section. I am desperately seeking information and hoping to hear about anyone's experience with damage to a rental car. This did not happen in Vegas but I have gotten a lot of helpful info. on this page on many things and was hoping someone would have some insight. I have a rental car for a couple weeks, returning Monday. I rear-ended a pickup truck (trailer hitch) last week and I am still waiting for my car to be repaired. I do not have car rental coverage so I am paying out of pocket for the rental. Yesterday, on my way home from work on the highway, I was behind a pickup truck. A huge empty box (think bigger than a fridge box) came flying out, along with a big round metal object, about the width of a tire, hits my car and puts a few scratches on the front bumper and the plastic headlight cover. I filed a police report, but the guy did not come back. I know what I need to do with the claims dept. with my credit card. I am just wanting to know what to expect with the rental car company and if I need to get any ducks in a row. Any help is much appreciated!!
