Your car rental agreement would already include a standard form of insurance that covers you for any basic damages to the vehicle. However these policies are fairly restricted in terms of cover and usually have a high excess even as high as £2,000.
When picking up your rental vehicle, the provider will attempt to offer you different forms of "additional" insurance, one to cover the high excess above, one for theft (an area not included on a standard rental policy) and its these that we aim to replace. Our car hire excess insurance is designed to supplement your standard car rental insurance, its all the extras just packaged into one cost affective way to insure your car rentals so you are never left out of pocket.
