Protective has enhanced its XtraRide RV service agreement program to provide mechanical breakdown coverage for an RV dealer’s rental fleet, according to a news release.
“We’ve always had the capability to cover rental vehicles on an individual basis with a business use surcharge,” said Bill Koster, Protective vice president. “However, we are now able to cover an entire new vehicle fleet with specific rates and no surcharge.”
The business-use surcharge and used-vehicle coverage are still available, but XtraRide’s rental program is a convenient and less expensive way for a dealer to protect the entire new vehicle fleet. XtraRide is exclusively endorsed by the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA).
“The real value here for the rental dealer is the ancillary benefits provided by Protective’s XtraRide service agreement,” Koster said. Customers can call for roadside assistance, concierge benefits, technical support and dealer locator services after the rental dealer’s business hours.
Dealers will not have to worry about problems rental customers may encounter and customers have the peace of mind that road hazards or technical issues can be addressed 24/7. Tire and wheel coverage is also available in many states.
Although the program is new, Protective has already received a number of inquiries. “I was very pleased at the reception we received at MBA’s rental school held in Las Vegas. This program is a great way for the dealer to transfer the risk while at the same time enhancing their customers’ rental experience,” Koster indicated.
XtraRide is fully insured and exclusively endorsed by RVDA. Protective has been underwriting RV service agreements since 1995 and the program is available in the U.S. and Canada. To learn more about XtraRide’s new rental program, contact an XtraRide agent or customer relations at (800) 670-6732.
