What is campervan hire excess insurance?

When you hire a motorhome or campervan within Europe, it is common practice for hire companies to include a basic level of vehicle insurance as part of the rental agreement. This is also known as a collision damage waiver CLD or loss damage waiver LDW. Outside of Europe this basic cover is not usually part of the agreement and may have to be bought separately. Whether this cover is included in your contract or bought separately before making a claim, the vast majority of insurance companies will state that you are liable to pay an excess fee before any claims for damages are settled.

Depending on the insurance company, type of vehicle age of driver etc this fee can be well within the thousands fo pounds. However do not fear, luckily you can purchase what is known as motor home and campervan hire excess insurance. This insurance policy will act as an add-on policy to your vehicle insurance agreement. Excess insurance will cover any excess fees you are required to make prior to a claim being settled in return for a small daily fee.

Please note: Before you hire your vehicle, make sure you fully understand the level of cover offered by the rental company as this may need to be bought separately.
