In case you missed this brilliant article on iCarhireinsurance.com in the Sunday Express, 1 September 2013, here it is below:
"We wouldn’t head off on holiday without travel insurance, so why should we be without car hire insurance
if we are planning on driving while away? As we all know, buying excess insurance from a hire car company can be an expensive and confusing act. Who really knows what is hidden in the fine print of a complicated policy?
"What is more, these policies frequently exclude areas such as tyre and windscreen damage. So even with excess cover you could still be left with a hefty bill and that is where iCarhireinsurance.com comes in. This innovative firm provides standalone cover for the excess charge of collision damage waiver. This comes after much detailed investigation into the cost of hire cars.
"The company conducted its own research into our favourite destinations such as Faro, Barcelona, Tenerife and Corfu to discover just how much excess insurance
costs when bought direct from the rental desk.
"The results were astonishing. In Faro, for example, a policy for a week costs £88 plus £33 for tyre and windscreen cover but daily, weekly or annual car insurance form the new website firm will save you pounds before you even leave home, not to mention giving you peace of mind.
"Policies can be bought for as little as £2.99 per day or £39.99 for annual European policy, a fraction of what the hire companies charge.
"The iCarhireinsurance.com website also has clear and simple information on all aspects from cover to claiming. You will never be overcharged again."
