iCarhireinsurance celebrates 1st birthday with German launch

iCarhireinsurance.com is 12 months old this month, having sold our first hire car insurance policy in March 2010. We’ve had a great first year in business and in what feels like a very short 12 months having helped thousands of customers buy low cost car hire insurance for rentals across the world. Within our first few months of business we also created a brand new policy for members of car sharing clubs, such as Zipcar, City Car Club and Street car. Our car club excess insurance can now bought on its own for £39.99 a year, or can be combined with a car hire policy for just £19.99. We are still the only company in the UK to offer this policy. In July of 2010 we also launched two great value Van Hire Excess Insurance policies.

 

So, a busy year for iCarhireinsurance.com, but it doesn’t stop there. We’ve also been very active building a brand new website which brings our low cost hire car insurance products to the German market. At the end of February this year, just before our official 1st birthday we launched www.leihwagenversicherung.de. This German website brings our car hire insurance products to a wider audience, and builds on the popularity of our service in the UK.

We’ve all been practising our German in the iCarhireinsurance office with a particular focus on understanding the German rental market.  We’re building up a glossary of terms and also now have a number of German linguists in the office to help answer questions from our new customers.

So, if you’re hiring a car in Germany here are some of the most popular terms that you may find useful

Leihwagen versicherung – hire car insurance

Mietwagen versicherung – Rental car insurance

Selbstbeteiligung – Insurance Excess

Volkasko – Liability (LDW)

 

And our carhire insurance products in Germany include

Selbstbeteiligungs-Ausschluss Versicherung Europa Pro Tag – Daily European Excess Insurance

Selbstbeteiligungs-Ausschluss Versicherung Europa Jahresschutz – Annual European Excess Insurance

Selbstbeteiligungs-Ausschluss Versicherung Weltweit Pro Tag – Daily Worldwide Excess Insurance

Selbstbeteiligungs-Ausschluss Versicherung Weltweit Jahresschutz – Annual Worldwide Excess Insurance

Selbstbeteiligungsschutz für Miettransporter – Van Hire Excess Insurance

Carshare Club Versicherung – Car Club Excess Insurance

Of course, if you’re a UK resident, you should still buy your policy through our UK site, but if you are renting a car in Germany and have one of our policies, you should say this at the rental desk when you are offered their own excess insurance.

Nein danke, ich habe schon eine sagenhaft günstige Selbstbeteiligungs-Ausschlussversicherung  von www.icarhireinsurance.com gekauft.“

Which, according to our German experts means something along the lines of...... 

“No thank you, I have already bought a fantastic, great value car hire excess insurance policy from www.icarhireinsurance.com.”
