When renting a car, customers may be surprised to find that the rental agreement includes a rather steep excess amount that the hirer will have to pay if he or she is involved in an accident. Car Hire policies will cover the excess costs from as little as a few Euros a day should anything happen to the vehicle when it is travelling about.

Many car hire policies provide cover for ‘Collision Damage Waiver’ or CDW which covers any damage to the hire car - however an excess amount will be charged in the event of damage to the vehicle. This is the sum that the car hire renter will be responsible for in the event of damage and this amount can usually range from one hundred euros and can be up to two thousand euros. Damage to the wheels, roof or windows may not be covered at all and in the event of any damage to the vehicle an Excess amount will be charged, which your policy will provide cover for.

Some car hire companies may offer you additional cover for the excess, which can cost up to £10 per day, so in comparison to policies which are available from as little as £1.99 per day, excellent savings can be made by purchasing cover in advance of your trip. Or for great value cover all year round, you can purchase a annual from £39.99 which covers unlimited rentals up to 62 days any one rental all year round.

As a special discount for the month of August, Car Hire have teamed up with / jml insurance marketing services to offer a special 10% discount from a Worldwide Annual policy bringing the cost down from £49.99 to just £44.99 for the year for the UK market. Customers must go to and enter the code CPJM10 in the Promotion code box when making the booking.

Joint Managing Director of Blue Insurances Ltd the company behind Car Hire, Ciaran Mulligan says ‘Car Hire customers should be aware of additional charges that Car Rental Companies can apply to customers in the event of accidents or damage to hire cars and instead of having to fork out for unexpected excess charges or additional costs on top of the car hire costs, customers should book excess cover before they travel.’

In addition, policies also provide cover for Personal Belongings if they are damaged following attempted theft or stolen from the car during the rental period. Cover for Rental Keys is also provided in the event of loss / damage to the rental keys which also includes cover for locksmith’s costs in breaking into the vehicle.

Apart from the Worldwide Annual product being discounted Car Hire offers a great selection of car hire excess insurance products for the UK and Irish markets. These include daily and European cover and worldwide daily cover.
