The Sunday Sun yesterday (23 June 2013) kicked off with a great money saving piece for holiday-goers which included buying car hire excess insurance from us!

As its travel editor, Lisa Minot, said: "Excess Insurance - if you have an accident you will pay the first £300 to £1000 of the cost of any damage. Car rental companies will hard sell you a policy to reduce this to nil for up to £25 a day. Take out a policy before you go with".

Thanks Lisa. Cracking advice. Always, always buy before you fly!

Similarly the Mail on Sunday also said, "Buy your own excess waiver", and NOT from the car hire company.

It too, recommends and also gives another excellent reason to buy our policy. "Another attraction," it said, "is that these stand-alone plans...provide cover that is often excluded from hire firm plans, such as damage to tyres, windows and undercarriage."

Cover with offers you absolute peace of mind as we offer a fully comprehensive policy which covers the vulnerable areas of a hire car, including tyres, windscreen and undercarriage, which many rental companies' policies do not cover.

As both the Sun and Mail on Sunday say please ignore the 'hard sell' at the rental desk and make sure you have a fully comprehensive car hire excess insurance policy bought from us, which is about 75% cheaper than the rental companies charge.
