We offer straightforward and low-cost alternatives to the expensive car hire excess insurance policies offered by car hire companies. Founded in 2003 we’re the UK’s longest-running online provider of car hire excess insurance.

Our policies are designed to reimburse you for excess if your hire car is damaged or stolen, and include cover on damage to roof, windows, tyres, undercarriage & headlights, parts that are often excluded by car hire companies. As an insurance4carhire policy holder all you need to do is tell us how much the car hire company charged you in excess and we’ll pay that amount back to you.

We offer a range of policies to reflect a range of travel requirements. Our daily single-trip policies offer flexibility and short term value where as our annual policies are suited to those who hit the road more often.

We also tailor our cover to make sure you get the best cover for wherever you choose to travel. Choose from:

Europe multi-trip car hire excess insurance

Worldwide multi-trip car hire excess insurance

USA & Canada CDW/SLI car hire insurance plus excess

Daily car hire excess insurance

Our very own journey started in 2003 and ever since, insurance4carhire has helped thousands of people avoid getting stung by high excess charges and poor policy cover. With backing from Towergate Underwriting Group Ltd from 2007 onwards, we were able to expand our product range to include the great variety of product you see today. Customer value has and always will be at the heart of what we do and we will continue to innovate and improve our products to that end. Our core values are:

  1. Provide excellent customer service, always

    We think customer service revolves around striking a perfect balance between thoroughness, efficiency and personality. Our UK-based customer service team are highly trained and you can buy or renew any of our policies online with ease. We’re confident you’ll be happy with your purchase but if you change your mind, we think it’s only fair that you should have 14 days to cancel.

  2. Keep it simple

    We know that insurance can be complicated. That’s why we offer straightforward products and act in a transparent manner at all times. Nothing is hidden and there are no catches. Everything you need is right here in plain English on our website. If you do have questions though, we’re on hand and we’re happy to answer them. Just email us or call 0844 892 1770.

  3. Be innovative

    We were founded on customer focused bold ideas. We were the first company to offer specialised car hire excess insurance, and we’re committed to remaining the leader in our field. We’re always looking for new ways to give you more and we’re always updating our products to offer our customers the most complete cover possible.
