Extending your rental
It is important to contact Discover Cars if you plan to extend your rental so that Full Coverage can be extended. If you extend your rental past the date your Full Coverage ends, damages and fees incurred might not be covered.
When picking up your rental car, you will be required to leave a deposit. Usually, this is a hold on your credit card (in some cases, it may be charged).
Full Coverage does not affect the standard deposit requirements; you will still have to leave a deposit. In the event you are charged for damages or other covered fees, the charges will be taken from your deposit. But after you file for compensation, you will be quickly reimbursed.
To cancel Full Coverage, please contact Discover Cars. It can not be canceled after your rental’s pick-up time.
We review and approve compensation applications in 48 hours, on average. After your application is approved, funds are transferred within one business day (though the processing time of your bank may be longer).
To apply for compensation under Full Coverage, send an email to email@example.com with the following documents:
- The rental agreement you signed when you picked up the car (ask the rental company for a copy if you don’t have one)
