- Log in to My COUNTRY and choose “Print Auto ID Cards” (If you don't have a My COUNTRY account, register today!)
- Call 866-COUNTRY (866-268-6879) to have a temporary card sent to you
- Contact your local COUNTRY Financial® representative
A deductible is the part of a covered claim you’re responsible to pay. Your deductible only applies to damage to your own vehicle, and you choose your deductibles when you buy your policy.
Generally, coverage from your own auto insurance policy applies to the rental vehicle when driving within the United States (including your deductible). Most rental companies will require you to have comprehensive and collision coverage on your COUNTRY Financial auto policy – if you don’t, they’ll ask you to purchase their damage waiver.
Review the company’s “loss of use” policy too. “Loss of use” means if you wreck a rental car, you may be charged for the revenue lost while the car is being fixed for the damage you caused. Loss of use is not generally covered on your personal auto policy. You may want to purchase the “loss of use” protection from the rental agency separately, if possible. Read the contract carefully and ask the rental agent to explain it if you are unsure.
Another thing to consider is that if you don’t purchase the insurance coverage offered by the rental company, an accident could mean an increase of your premiums.
I upgraded my car stereo system beyond the basic equipment. Do I have coverage for it on my auto insurance?
When you purchase stereo equipment beyond what is normally found in the vehicle, you may need to increase your coverage. Your financial representative can give you a better idea of your coverage options, like the Communication Device Endorsement. When purchasing this coverage, your COUNTRY Financial representative will help you determine the limits depending on the type of equipment you’re installing and the cost. The Communication Endorsement can be purchased with limits ranging from $300 to $5,000. Contact your representative to review your coverage options.
