Our great value car hire excess insurance was recommended by Chiara Cavaglieri in the Independent on Sunday 27th March whose article gave a number of key tips to rental customers explaining how to get the best deals.

After giving some top tips on how to secure the cheapest rental car, Chiara then went on to explain how we offer a low-cost alternative to the excess insurance that is sold at the rental desk which is usually expensive and often excludes damage to the more vulnerable parts of the vehicle.

Chiara said

“However, you can still come unstuck with the excess level, which is the amount you pay towards the cost of repairing damage. Unlike car insurance, where you pick the excess levels which typically ranges from £200 to £500, car rental firms dictate how much you pay with many charging a minimum of £500 – at Hertz, for example, the excess ranges from £550 to a staggering £1,400, depending on the vehicle group…Most companies will try to persuade you to add a top-up policy to get rid of this excess but you should steer clear of this as it will often cost way over the odds.”
