Benefits of the Car Hire Excess Insurance

If your hired vehicle is damaged or stolen, you are usually liable to pay an 'Excess' charge.
This charge will apply even if the damage is not your fault.
'Collision Damage Waiver' is offered by most Rental companies, enabling you to remove the charge: but this add-on can be costly, and does not always cover the whole charge.
Our insurance acts in place of CDW, at a much lower price.
You are covered for the charges applied in the event of theft or damage to any part of the vehicle

Any Questions?
