Excess is also known as, non-waiver, the deductible or super CDW. Excess is a voluntary insurance and is sold by car rental companies at the counter when the customer collects the car (or when the booking is made). It is usually charged on a Daily basis and applies to Car hire, Van hire and Motorhome hire

The customer has the right to accept or decline the car rental company's Excess. If they do decline, they will be responsible for the excess charges if there is any damage done to the vehicle. In some cases the car hire company will not let the hirer take delivery of the car unless they take out the excess.

The cost of the Excess will vary according to:

  • The rental company
  • Size of the rental vehicle
  • The country in which the car is picked-up

You can take out a daily policy, annual policy, a family policy and customers up to the age of 84 can be covered.

When you buy your car hire insurance from a specialist advertising on this site, you will save 's - 's - $'s compared to the cost of buying the cover when you pick up your car or book the car from a car jire company.

Consumers are often tired after flights or in a rush to start their holiday so are keen to collect their hire car and as a result are more likely to accept the terms of a car hire company without assessing them fully and could end up paying a lot more than they have budgeted for.
