My name is ***** ***** I a minicab driver in London. 2

Resolved Question:

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I a minicab driver in London.
2 days ago my car broke down, and I called Mercedes Benz roadside assistance they offer me a courtesy car PCO licensed to continue to work, while they repair my car.
They say they will pay for the car, but the rental cost is more than £200 per day, therefore the rental soon it’s going to be more expensive than the repair of my car.
who is paying this rent, and most important how do I make sure that I’m not that person?
because the rent agreement it’s confused to me.
Thank you

unless I change my mind and i don't to repair my car with them
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Ok.
So why should you be liable?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had a bad experience in the past with this issue, that's I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing.my doubt is how they make money with the repair of my car if they have to pay a lot more in the rent of the courtesy car?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Generally insurers do lose out if they have to accept liability.
That doesn't change the fact that they are liable. If your policy says you are entitled to a courtesy car then they will have to pay for it. There is no basis upon which they could ask you to do so unless you keep it for longer than was permitted or act in some other way in breach of the contract.
Can I clarify anything for you?

my insurance policy is not involved, Mercedes Benz offers me a courtesy car because I do regulary the service with them.
I don't have any paper that I'm entitled to a courtesy car.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Haven't they set down in writing that you are entitled?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
And on the rental agreement my name appears.
