Q: I’m buying a new car over the weekend. Is it automatically covered under my current personal auto policy?

A: With an existing Nationwide Private Client auto policy, your coverage automatically extends to your new car for a specific amount of time, which varies by state. We recommend that you contact your agent or our customer service department within three business days following your purchase to ensure coverage. Please refer to your policy’s newly acquired auto provisions for details.

Q: Does my auto policy include roadside assistance?

A: In most states, roadside assistance is automatically added to private passenger auto policies when at least one vehicle on the policy has comprehensive and collision coverage. Please refer to your automobile policy declarations to see if this coverage applies. To reach roadside assistance, call our Private Client Solutions Center at 1-855-473-6410, option 1.

Q: I’m renting a car. Does my auto coverage extend to my rental?

A: In most states, if comprehensive, collision and liability coverage are listed on your Nationwide Private Client auto policy declarations, those coverages will automatically extend to a car you rent for 90 days or less. If you are renting due to a covered loss on your covered auto, coverage extends until your car is repaired or replaced in most states. Please contact your agent or refer to your policy forms and declarations for additional details.
