car excess waiver

Theft & Vandalism Cover

A standard vehicle rental leaves the customer with the initial policy excess to pay in the event of a claim regardless of whether their fault or not. Taking out excess waiver insurance with ourselves covers this cost and includes third party cover should the unfortunate happen and it not be the drivers fault.

The excess amount varies quite heavily between rental providers, its common to see these around the thousand pounds mark and sometimes even higher especially if a hire vehicle is of a higher value. That’s why third party liability cover is an important inclusion on an excess hire policy, the last thing anyone wants is to be left with a huge bill for something that was out of their hands.
