Insurance4carhire.com provides an Excess Reimbursement Insurance to consumers wanting to avoid the high excess charges that car rental companies are charging. For an Annual premium or a daily [worldwide] rate, we cover excess damage, excess theft, damage to windows/tyres/undercarriage. Our policies are valid at all car rental companies worldwide

Whoops, forgot to mention. This is the second year that we have used this service. We have never made a claim as yet but it provides peace of mind. Whenever we hire a car we're asked if we want to cover the excess which can cost around £9 per day so by taking out the policy we are saving a small fortune.
Last year we were away 3 times with car hire and it only cost £49 for the year.
AS AN ADDED BONUS (and this is the main reason for posting the deal) you get 20% back through quidco for an annual policy! Quidco didn't have it on last year and i was MOST excited to find it this year!

Am sorely tempted by this, thanks dramaqueen. Used Tesco clubcard vouchers for car hire in Italy a few months back but still had to cough up an extra 150 Euro to bring the insurance excess down from 800 Euro!!! Off up to Scotland at the weekend with 7 days car hire booked (Avis, courtesy of TCC vouchers again). Only cautious as I've never heard of this company - anyone else used them or claimed from them before?

Just double check you actually need this insurance as car hire is a minefield at the best of times. I just booked 8 days car hire in the states with hertz which came with all the insurance you would need and a nil excess.

I've heard of these guys before and they are well known for being good value for a lot of people, but just double check as not all hire comapny's do charge an excess, and if they don't, this is pretty much worthless.

i agree not all car hire companies charge extra for the excess, but you will generally find that these companies have slightly inflated prices.

i personally think it is worth the cost of the annual insurance - you never know when you might be whisked away for a relaxing holiday... i wish!

anyway, check out this link it's a What the papers say...


I have just taken out a policy with carhireexcess.com.

About £14 for a week. Seems OK value to me.
