September 1 is fast approaching and for many of us heralds the start of the great return to school and work.  It also marks the Number One day for road accidents.


40% more accidents were recorded on September 1 last year than average according to AXA Insurance.

The fact that this year September 1 is also a Saturday is seen as further cause for concern with the number of crashes expected to be higher still.

If you are driving a hire car on this day make sure you have your excess insurance sorted, otherwise if your car is involved in any accident (even if it's not your fault) you could be liable for excess charges of up to £2000.


Buying a policy direct from the car rental company can cost upwards of £17 a day and also often excludes vulnerable parts of the rental vehicle.'s affordable excess car hire insurance policies cost from £2.99 a day and as well as being great value for money provide more comprehensive cover than the vast majority of the rental companies' policies.

If you are on the roads this Saturday please take extra care.
