Single Trip Car Hire Excess Insurance

Daily car hire excess insurance for car rentals worldwide

Single Trip Worldwide car hire excess cover is suitable for short car rental periods. If you’re hiring a car more than once this year, one of our annual policies may be better value for you!

Car hire excess insurance is designed to reimburse you for the excess you'd be required to pay when making a claim with your car rental company.

For example, if your hire car was damaged or stolen, you would be expected to pay an amount towards the repair or replacement. This is called an excess or deductible and can be upwards of £1,000. With an insurance4carhire policy, you'd be able to claim back this excess.
