Vehicle Hire Excess Insurance is insurance designed to cover a person who rents a car against having to pay an “excess” in the event of the hire car being stolen or damaged.
In the case of your hire vehicle being stolen or damaged in an accident, the person who has rented the vehicle will be required to pay the first part of the loss, known as the “excess” usually between £700 and £2500.
You very often can. Vehicle Hire Excess insurance is usually offered as an option that vehicle hire companies will add on to your bill at a premium rate. An alternative is to purchase your Vehicle Hire Excess Insurance separately from Us, you could save ££££s on your bill, you will also benefit from our excellent levels of cover that includes parts of the vehicle typically excluded from a standard car rental company Vehicle Hire Excess Insurance policy.
CDW stands for Collision Damage Waiver. When you rent a Car, Van, Mini-Bus or Motor Home your vehicle rental agreement will usually include insurance such as Collision Damage Waiver, also referred to as CDW or sometimes Loss Damage Waiver, LDW or 3rd Party Liability Insurance.
The minimum age we require for Car Hire Excess is 21 and the maximum age is 85. For all other types of Vehicle Hire Excess (Van, Mini-Bus, Motor Home) the minimum age requirement is 24 and the maximum age is 74.
