Single Trip Worldwide car hire excess cover is suitable for short car rentals. If you're a hiring a car more than once this year, one of our annual policies may be better value!
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 were damaged or stolen, you would be expected to pay towards the repair or replacement. This is called an excess or deductible and can be more than £1,000. With an insurance4carhire policy you'd be able to claim back this excess.

Single Trip Worldwide car hire excess insurance from insurance4carhire is a car rental excess policy available for single trips of under 60 consecutive days.
Our single trip excess policy offers worldwide cover. Note that this excludes driving in: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, the region of Crimea, Sudan and Syria.
If the lead driver is an insurance4carhire policy holder, you will be covered. If the lead driver is not a policy holder, you will not be covered, even if you yourself are a policy holder. To be covered by insurance4carhire, the primary (lead) driver must always be a policy holder.
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not included in our single trip policy. If you require CDW, we offer an annual product which includes three covers under one policy: car hire excess insurance, CDW and Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI). Please visit our Worldwide Plus CDW & SLI page to find out more.
This really depends on the length of your trip and where you are travelling. To compare the cost of a single trip daily policy versus an annual one, select 'Single Trip' on the pricing filter on our homepage.
