Our European car hire excess insurance covers you for driving in a hire car across Europe. An annual car hire excess insurance policy will cover you for an excess fee due on your hire car should you damage it in any way. Often these excess fees are poorly explained and results in a huge cost for you, the customer, when you believed that you were fully covered. Annual car excess insurance means that if you’re involved in an accident, theft or collision in a hire car anytime during the year you policy is valid we pay the excess cost and any other costs outlined in the policy, saving you money.

When is it best to take out an annual excess policy?

While you can purchase an annual excess waiver insurance policy when you go to pick up your rental, you will always benefit from taking out an annual policy in advance. Doing your research means that you can understand exactly what the policy will cover, and can compare prices and companies while you are relaxed and have time to make the best decision for yourself – and your wallet. It’s always better to take a policy out in advance when you are not being pressurized by pushy sales tactics.
