If I have 2 (or more) ships, and one gets destroyed, do I have the option to not rebuy that ship, but instead merely switch to one of my other ones?

    Note that you never want to do this. You should rebuy and then sell the ship instead. Rebuy cost is 1/20th (5%) of cost of the ship and you lose (at most) 10% of cost when selling a ship, so if you don't rebuy, you're losing out on credits worth 85%-95% of the ship's value. And loan is free (no interest), so this holds true even if you have to use loan to rebuy. And true if you can only do a partial rebuy (leaving some parts out). – Cmdr Freiheit Mar 16 '17 at 20:39

I'm afraid you don't. Your choices are re-buy the ship with all modules, re-buy the ship with slightly less components, or go to a Sidewinder.

Whatever option you pick you'll end up back at a station, typically the one you last docked at, and if you want to switch ships you'd have to transport it to your current location or fly to it.

  • Well it's good to see that you don't lose the whole fleet or your credits by choosing against a rebuy.... – Shadow Mar 15 '17 at 23:30

    To get back to your other ship, sell the sidewinder, buy a hauler and fit with the biggest FSD you can get, and start jumping. Hopefully not too far away. – Sir Adelaide Mar 16 '17 at 0:04
