Valet Parking Theft/Accident Cover
When you visit a mall or hotel, you usually give your keys to the valet, i.e., an assigned employee parks your car on your behalf. Valet parking is a convenient service that helps you save time and effort in trying to find a parking spot. With a professional valet taking care of your car, you can be assured that it will be parked in the designated area.
So, without any inhibition, you trust them with your keys. But what happens if things go wrong? Say your vehicle that was valet-parked at the hotel goes missing. And the hotel refuses to take responsibility. In such a situation, you could be left to fend for yourself, bearing the financial burden of a missing vehicle.
This is where valet parking theft and valet parking accident covers come in. With these covers, you can be sure that you won't be faced with unexpected financial strain in the event of a valet parking accident or theft.
