Ernesto Suarez, CEO,, said “Car Clubs are a fantastic idea but with no one to check the car in and out, your risk of damage during your booking isn’t limited to whilst you are driving. With excesses of around £1000, how do you prove that damage was done before you picked it up or after it was dropped off?’ excess policies are 75% cheaper than the leading provider, cover damage to the whole of the car and reduce the excess to zero. With our policies you can be safe in the knowledge that you have saved money and are completely covered.”
