How does it work with insurance4carhire?
As an example, if your excess with the car rental company were £500 and you needed to make a claim, you would pay the rental company £500 and they would pay the remaining cost of the claim.
You'd then claim back the £500 you paid, through insurance4carhire's online claims process.
