Quoting iCarhireinsurance.com's Cheif Executive, Ernesto Suarez, the article said that there was a "lack of transparency" when customers were booking cars for skiing holidays. "Extra charges can range from up to £60 to hire snow chains, up to £85 to hire a roof rack and an additional £155 to pay for excess car hire insurance for a week". This is a whopping £300 extra on a skier's bill before they've even left the airport!
To save money on car hire excess insurance, we always advise to 'buy before you fly'. Excess policies bought in advance from a specialist provider, like us, is only £2.99 a day. An extra £20 for the peace of mind of covering a hire car's excess, which can be up to £2000, is a small price to pay particularly when compared with the hire comprehensive that the car rental companies' onces.
Don't let those costs snowball!
