My mother-in-law from China wants to drive my my car when we are having a road-trip in us...
(Toronto, ON, Canada)
My mother-in-law is having a vacation here in Toronto and my wife and I are planning a road trip to New York city during the Christmas holiday. And the show begins...
My mother-in-law used to visit a relative of hers in NYC, who asked her to drive his car and pick up his children from school. So this time she wanted to drive as well during the road trip.
Since I don't have her in my policy, naturally I refused the idea, which somehow makes her mad and think that I care more about my car than her feelings...
I don't want to start a fight during Christmas time so I am wondering if I can add her into my policy temporarily or just rent a car?
Thanks for you answer and have a nice day.
Lending car to Mother-In-Law
In trouble with your mother in law? ;-)
I think you are right to avoid lending your car. Especially in a complicated situation with an out of country driver and the car being in yet another country. Insurance claims are difficult enough as it is.
You would be wise to A) discuss this with your insurer; or B) rent a car and make sure the rental co knows your mother in law will be driving.
Please be sure to discuss this further with a licensed insurance representative. Oh, and by the way, are your rates too high? Check here:FREE Auto Insurance QuotesOther Pages of Interestcar insurance in Ontario Canada Car Insurance CanadaCar Insurance Quote CanadaAuto Insurance Questions
