If you book through Expedia, Hertz car hire are offering a special rate if you hire a vehicle for between 5 and 27 days. The offer is available at Orlando International airport (offsite) and Sanford (at airport). The longer you hire the better the deal is.

I've just booked a 4 wheel drive 7 seater SUV for 3 weeks in October, and it's cost £266 (same price as 2 weeks). This would typically cost £400 more with other suppliers.

There doesn't seem to be much cost difference between hiring a car for a week, or 27 days!

This price includes all relevant insurance for one driver.

Don't forget Quidco which gives 6.9% cashback for carhire through Expedia.

Doesn't sem to include CDW which is probably why it seems so cheap, when you arrive they will ream you for the CDW and I personally wouldn't drive a car in america without it. (I read the T&Cs as it seemd too cheap to be true)

Perfect timing. I need a car for 2 months time!. CDW listed in the details section.

CDW is included. I phoned Expedia and they confirmed this for me. It states on Expedia's website:

Hertz Economy Car
Air conditioning, automatic transmission, unlimited mileage, Collision & Damage Waiver, Theft Protection, Third-Party Liability Insurance, City/Airport Surcharges, Road Tax, VAT/Tax, Additional Liability Insurance for the U.S. and Canada.
Hyundai Accent or similar, 2 adults, 2 children, 2 small carry-ons, 2 - 3 doors

You have just saved me c. £70 for a trip next month :thumbsup: - and that was already a cheap rate.

Thanks!

There is an issue here.

Where CDW is included, Hertz and most other renters apply a massive excess - typically $800 or even $1200 dollars or more. This means that you are liable up to the excess amount even though you have CDW. You can have this excess waived by purchasing, (wait for it!), damage excess waiver, which costs around $12 per day - a hell of a lot if you're renting for two weeks.

The best deal is from Holiday Autos where you can get waiver insurance for a couple of quid a day and their rental rates are pretty good too. Otherwise, if you rent a lot you can purchase excess waiver insurance in the UK - Google is your friend here.

It's best not to chance it 'cos you'll be continually worrying and the chances are you'll get dinged in a car park where it's not even your fault. The rental firm will charge your credit card and there's no argument. A $1200 charge is not a happy end to your holiday!

Couldn't agree more - last time I was over my brand new rental got scratched in a car wash and would have cost me fortune without the excess cover - have some rep :thumbsup:

I found the relevant piece from the Hertz site - you can be charged up to £1400!!

"Regardless of whether CDW is accepted or included, all rentals are subject to a non-waivable excess ranging from GBP 550.00 to GBP 1,400.00, depending on the vehicle group, for which you are responsible in the event of damage during the rental.

You can further eliminate your excess liability - Please refer to "Super Cover" in the location index for additional information."

This is a good deal in any terms. I`m speaking from 20 years of hiring cars in Florida. I`ve just save £200 over 3 weeks in April/ May.
Ok, you have to get the shuttle to the car hire at MCO but that isn`t any great hassle. It`s very convenient to pick up a car in the multi story car park at Orlando Intl but it`s a racetrack going back in when you return. Seems, to me, easier to drop off outside the airport (McCoy Rd ?) take the shuttle back to the airport door and walk up to your airline check in desk.
Well spotted and thank you

There are companies out there like
http://www.insurance4carhire.com/
Which give you insurance against this excess. Its about £55 if you go through quidco and with the savings that many people have made ( This was posted on the DIBB yesterday) even with an additional £55 they're still quids in. Hot deal - I wonder if you are a dibber!

Yes it does - the link above is US and replicates the UK link.

You'll only find out the charge for Supercover when you rent - it's a local charge and pricing differs.

Pre-insure in the UK and then this is a good deal - otherwise, you may have an unpleasant suprise.

We booked through Hertz site a couple of months ago. Anyone know what's the difference between CDW and LDW? Ours includes the LDW so do we still need the CDW or super cover?

LDW stands for Loss Damage Waiver - protects you if the car gets nicked. You'd still be woefully undercovered. Use the UK based insurers:

http://www.carhireexcess.com/

http://www.insure4excess.com/

and then you can happily decline all Hertz's "optionals"

AAAAAGGGGGGHHH.

Thought I had everything sorted for the hols! Thanks for the tips everyone. I have been looking at the links. If you are taking it out and looking at going to the States make sure that the insurance covers the States. The http://www.insurance4carhire.com/ actully quotes £109.00 for the USA. More expensive due to most folks out there not having 3rd party.

Make sure you DO have CDW & LDW tho'.

You can be liable for up to $60,000 odd if the car is totaled or stolen.:shock:

To summarise, you need CDW, LDW and a policy to cover the excess, which you can arrange in advance in the UK.

Otherwise, compare your rental charges with Holiday Autos - they're a broker and usually offer good rates with a variety of firms including Hertz. They give money back via Quidco too.:thumbsup:

That quote is for car hire that does not come with CDW or SLI (Third Party Liability Insurance). The Hertz hire includes these.

Ignore the stupid earlier posts - CDW and LDW are the same thing - they are *waivers" (NOT insurance) against damage to the car. In the US there is no excess.

When you rent a car in the US from the UK it also includes the necessary 3rd part insurance too.

The 3rd party policies are un-necessary unless you book directly in the US and decline all the offered coverages.

"Questions / Comments


How can I reduce or eliminate the excess liability?
Answer


If you opted for, or if your rate includes Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection (TP), you may also wish to purchase an additional protection, "Super Cover", to waive your already limited liability in case of damage to, or theft of the Hertz vehicle, its parts and accessories, including those losses resulting from collision, vandalism, theft or attempted theft, provided the vehicle is used in accordance with the terms and conditions of the rental agreement.

Super Cover is not available if you are less than 25 years old nor for customers on business contract rate rentals unless there is a CDP code present that indicates that this option is applicable, nor is it applicable for cargo vans.

Super Cover can only be purchased at time of pick-up.

Super Cover does not cover broken / loss of keys, contamination of fuel or Hertz NeverLost navigation units."


That is is taken directly from the Hertz Website.

If you want, ring them again and ask what Supercover is and why they sell it.

I used to work in Car Rental so I am aware of all the different revenue streams and what they will charge if things go awry

They don't offer it in the US. It doesn't even come up on US Hertz website as an option. The website is a mish mash of different terms and conditions which you will know, as you used to work in the business, are designed to confuse people so that they can be easily ripped off.

From the Hertz US website:
"Question
What is Loss Damage Waiver (LDW)?
Answer
Loss Damage Waiver (U.S. and Canada only) is an optional service which, if accepted, eliminates your financial liability for loss or damage to the hertz vehicle, its parts and accessories, provided the vehicle is used in accordance with the terms and conditions of the rental agreement."

This is included as standard with the Expedia/Hertz deal, as it is with pretty well all consolidator bookings made in the UK for US car rental.

They're in the process of moving onsite at MCO over the next couple of weeks. Current renters are being told to return their cars to the airport.

You are misleading people to suggest that there will not be an excess in the rental agreement.

Even if the rental includes CDW/LDW/SLI there will be an excess amount, which will be charged to the renter's credit card in the event of theft/accident/car park ding/vandalism. This excess can be up to £1400 or local currency equivalent - maybe $2000 in the US. The amount will be debited to your credit card and the rental can be aborted if you don't have sufficient credit to cover it.

Unless you have pre-arranged excess insurance cover, when you can recover the charge upon your return, you will have the excess amount charged to your credit or charge card in the event of a ding - no ifs, buts or maybes. That also means punctures, lost hub caps, chipped windscreens etc. etc.

The only way to avoid the charge is to pray that you have no problems throughout your rental, pre-arrange excess insurance or take the rental company option. This is expensive at around $12 per rental day.

My advice is to ensure that you have pre-arranged excess insurance.

Otherwise people can take your advice and believe I am talking cobblers - it's not my money so ultimately, it's not my risk:p

THERE IS NO EXCESS ON USA RENTALS if you have CDW/LDW (they're the same thing).

Do you not understand the phrase above from the Hertz website that it "ELIMINATES YOUR FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY"?

The reason you're having to do the conversion from sterling to dollars is that you're looking at T's & C's which are apllicable for rentals in the UK.

ETA: Here's a reply from Hertz to someone asking the excess question:
"Thank you for your e-mail.

The rate for your rental is already inclusive of Loss Damage Waiver (LDW),
which is a full coverage for damage and theft to/of the Hertz vehicle,
without any excess.

We remain at your service and thank you for contacting Hertz."

Help!!!!! I'm really confused. We're going in June and I'm looking at booking my car hire today. Have always gone through Virgin as a flydrive in the past but cheaper to do it seperately this time. What do I need? I'm worried if I don't pre-book the correct things now they'll try yo sell me stuff over there and I won't know what I need!!!!
#32
I've been looking at the holiday autos website and am confused about the excess insurance too:(

It offers me
standard damage excess waiver (SDEW) for £23.92, or
total damage excess waiver (TDEW) for £38.00, for the 8 days that I'm away.

Hopefully cheapskate58 can advise if I was to take one of these insurances out, would that mean that I was covered in all eventualities and would not be liable for any excesses whatsoever if anything happened to the car??
