What is worldwide car hire excess insurance?

Travel and drive without boarders with our worldwide car hire excess insurance policy. With our worldwide excess waiver insurance you can hire a car almost anywhere and be protected against hefty excess charges should something happen to your hire car.

It works by reimbursing you the cost of the excess charge should you need to make a claim on your car rental insurance policy. This insurance is usually included in the cost of the rental and will typically cover you for an accident, damage, fire and theft. In addition, there should be insurance that covers you for damage or injury to third parties, if you hit someone for instance. However, to make a claim against the insurance you will need to pay an excess charge, which can be as high as £2000. Our worldwide excess waiver insurance covers you for this excess charge, meaning you can relax and enjoy your hire car.

Our worldwide policies cover almost anywhere in the world including the USA, Canada, Europe and Australia. Most car rentals should include all necessary insurance if you’re booking from the UK. However, the level of cover on the car hire insurance can change considerably if you’re traveling to the USA or Canada. Read our guide on car hire excess insurance in the USA.
