What is Car Hire Excess Insurance?

Car Hire Excess Insurance is an optional insurance product that covers against any excess charges you may incur when you hire a car.

If the vehicle is damaged or stolen whilst in your possession, the rental company will ask you to pay the first portion of any costs to repair or replace the vehicle (the excess is typically between £700 and £2500).

By having excess insurance in place you can protect yourself against these charges and buying a policy before arriving at the rental desk offers a huge saving.

What am I covered for?

You will be covered for any physical loss or damage to your Hire Vehicle for which you are responsible for under the terms of your Hire Agreement. This will provide protection for:

  • Malicious Damage
  • Accidents
  • Accidental Damage
  • Theft or Attempted Theft
  • Auto Glass
  • Tyres
  • Roof
  • Wheel Rims
  • Towing
  • Key Cover
  • Locked Out Cover
  • Misfueling

How do I claim?

We operate independently from the car hire company. If you have an accident, you would need to pay your excess up front but claiming back your money is stress free. Here is how you do it:

  1. After your accident ensure you keep any receipts given to you
  2. Contact us via phone or email within 31 days of the incident
  3. We will aim to pay your money into your account within 15 days of receiving your claim
