Daily Car Hire Excess Insurance Policy Documents

If you don’t travel as often as you’d like, we can offer car hire excess policies for a period of your choosing. However, if you plan to hire a car for more than 12 days within a year (10 days if only travelling in Europe), it may be better value to take out one of our annual policies.

Daily car hire excess insurance policies provide great cover to reimburse you for a range of charges which may be levied by your rental company (e.g. in the event of damage or theft of the vehicle). To get daily excess waiver from the car hire desk you may have to pay considerably more.

Plus, insurance4carhire works in 24 hour periods making us great value for overnight trips. If you were to pick up your vehicle at 4pm on Tuesday and dropped it off before 4pm on Wednesday, you’d only pay for one day where as some car hire companies would charge you for two.
