Do car rental companies repair/replace flat tires

i rented a car I march 2009 while on vacation. I had a flat tire and did not take their roadside insurance. I had to replace the tire on my own. I would like to know if this is standard policy. I am looking at rental cars for another vacation.

Why would they offer "roadside insurance" if the service is available free? Competing companies seldom have "standard policies." Next time, shop around and ask. If you have to change the tire, what happens if the engine or transmission goes bad?

If you have a car club membership like Better World or AAA or something through your car insurance, check with them to see if they cover rentals with your policy. The credit card I use most often for travel covers roadside on rentals automatically if I pay for the rental with that card. Check to see if any of your cards offer that service as well.

Definitely shop the rental companies to see who offers what... and see who you can talk into a free upgrade for a nicer car or added perks like roadside.

They would not offer any kind of this services to you because its your resposibililty when car is in your hand. If you are its regular customer or join their membership then may be they can do it.

The question is how did you obtain the flat tire? Generally, tread damage will be covered by the rental company, but if the flat is a result from damage to the wall of the tire, it can be concluded that your driving was a key component to the tire’s failure. Having the vehicle off-road can also be a reason why they wouldn’t cover the flat tire.

That said, if the rental company is making you pay for it, they likely believe it was damaged as a direct result of your driving.
