At your request, we will send information on the programs available, the Daily Auto Rental Insurance application, and other required forms. Once we receive your completed forms, they are submitted to underwriting. The normal response time for a quote is generally 48-72 hours. After we receive your quote, we will prepare a proposal that shows your start-up costs, as well as your monthly cost for rental fleet insurance. When we receive your signed proposal, ARRC will forward the membership documents for you to complete and sign. Coverage is normally bound within 24 hours of our receipt of signed documents.
You must complete the application and provide the required documents to obtain an up-front cost for insurance and membership in the ARRC program.
