More about Vehicle Hire Excess Insurance

Vehicle Hire Excess Insurance is also referred to in the industry as CDW, or Collision Damage Waiver, or sometimes Loss Damage Waiver, or LDW.

This insurance when purchased through the rental company you hire your vehicle from usually comes with a hefty price tag. In the instance of your vehicle being stolen or damaged in an accident, the person who rented the vehicle will be required to pay the first part of the loss, known as the “excess”.

Leisure Guard’s Vehicle Hire Excess Insurance is designed to protect you against this charge known as an “excess waiver”, most hire companies will offer you this type of product at the rental desk, however at a premium price, sometimes up to £25 a day.

For those looking to get the best value on their holiday or business travel, another option is to buy a standalone Vehicle Hire Excess Insurance policy from us. With great cover levels and the option to cover a single trip or multiple trips throughout the year you could find you save yourself considerable amounts by choosing us.
