Car Hire Excess Insurance

Available from as little as £1.99 a day compared to £10 or more with a car rental agency. 

We at believe that our Breakdown Cover provides peace of mind when driving your vehicle in the UK and Europe. But if you hire a car when you’re away, you also need that peace of mind through car hire excess insurance.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Bettersafe, providers of car hire excess insurance. When you rent a vehicle in most countries the hire cost will include some form of insurance. However, that insurance will usually come with a hefty excess against it. The rental agency will then try to sell you insurance to cover the excess, which can run up to over £10 a day! You could be open to large costs if a dispute were to happen, which is why we think purchasing car hire excess insurance makes a lot of sense for many vehicle hirers.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Low cost, as little as £1.99 a day versus £10 or more with car rental agency
  • Up to £6,000, any one claim and in aggregate, for an excess claim
  • Damage to car, theft, lost keys, miss-fuelling, road rage, lockout, reparation, car-jacking all covered
  • Worldwide cover including up to $100,000 collision damage waiver and $1,000,000 supplemental liability insurance
  • Cover for up to 8 drivers
  • Peace of mind

So if you’re looking to rent a vehicle soon, then don’t forget your car hire excess insurance!
