RV Rental Insurance Binder Definition
By law, of course, you’ve got to have insurance when renting an RV. Just like with a car, insurance protects the driver and owner in the case of any sort of incident. What exactly is an insurance binder for an RV rental though?
Put simply, it’s temporary RV rental insurance that is offered by your insurance company until a policy can be issued. For example, it’s usually a single page document that contains specific information such as all the names of the insured, the type of policy, and definite time limits.
An RV rental insurance binder (or any RV insurance, really) requires a list of two things:
- Liability insurance, that covers you if anyone gets hurt or tries to sue you
- Actual RV rental insurance, which covers you in case of an accident
Online you can find a template as an example of what they typically look like.
Keep in mind that not all auto insurance companies offer insurance binders. So it’s something you should find out about as early in the planning process as possible.
