Car Hire Excess Insurance

When renting a car there can be times when an unfortunate event such as an accident or theft can leave you with a hefty bill either in the form of the repair cost or the excess on your car hire vehicle’s rental insurance.

Most hire car policies come with insurance included, this is often called Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Loss Damage Waiver (LDW), however like your home or car insurance you will need to pay an excess fee in order to make a claim. This excess can be as high as £2000, with some car hire companies charging this excess for small scratches or dents.

To remove this excess charge car hire companies will look to sell you their own car hire excess insurance (also known as excess waiver) at the rental desk, which can cost up to £26 per day*. Our car hire excess insurance removes this car hire insurance excess charge in the same way as the car rental company’s policy, but for a fraction of  the cost – from just £1.98 per day
