Annual European Car Hire Excess Insurance

I’ve written about the importance of reading all the small print in car rental agreements and how you could be liable to pay an excess of several hundred pounds if your hire car is damaged or stolen even when you are quote a so called inclusive price.  So  multi-trip annual car hire excess insurance for around £50 for 12 months cover is a great deal. You are covered for unlimited rental periods, of up to 31 continuous days,  with a maximum payout for any one incident up to £2,000 and up to £3,000 during the one year period.

As an example, Hertz are charging 18.60 Euro per day (for pickups at Bratislava Airport) for their Super Cover, which doesn’t even include loss of keys. That means that you’d pay a whopping 130.20 Euro for one week’s Super Cover. Therefore buying the European annual insurance4carhire policy for £50 is looking like a great buy.

This policy can be bought by people resident anywhere in the world for their car hire in Europe. You need to be aware that this is a reimbursement type of insurance, the car hire company will deduct the excess from your credit card and you need to reclaim this.
