What Is Car Rental Excess Insurance

When you rent a car, a standard insurance package (sometimes called a Collision Damage Waiver or CDW) is usually added to your booking - you may think that's the end of it and you don't need to for pay anything else. Unfortunately, you'd be wrong.

This insurance usually always comes with a deductible or excess on top - often costing [#]1000s. When you go to pick your car up, rental companies nearly always offer extra "premium" insurance (often called an excess waiver or "super cover") which removes this deductible, but at the price of up to [#]25 per day. Don't take it, there is a better way.

Buy a rental excess policy with us for as little as [#]2 per day. If you need to claim, you pay the car rental company's deductible or excess and then claim it back through us, saving you money in the process. What's even better is that our policies sometimes offer you even more cover than the rental company's. Pretty great, right?
