    Insurance To Reduce Car Hire Excess

    I was reading in the Enterprise post the other day about the cost to reduce excess on hire cars. With Enterprise its £10/day to reduce it from £600 to £100 i think. I'm hiring the car for four days and reducing the excess will almost double the rental price (i know i dont have to, but its for piece of mind)...is it possible to get insurance with a company that will do the same and avoid Enterprises costs. I hire a car about 3/4 times a year so going this route could save quite a bit possibly.

    I also use Enterprise about 3 times a year as I have always found them the cheapest and nearest to me. The extra to reduce the excess at mine is £5 a day though I have never taken it , always just risk it.

    just found this insurance for 39.99 annual, not sure what happens if you completely right off the car (god forbid) - quidco is £13

    ive got about 1500 miles to drive, its not so much that im worried by me hitting something, its about someone hitting me, or doing a hit n run whilst im parked up

    I agree it is a risk and never say never thats just me, the link above looks good although I would just check its kosha with the rental company first.

    I think this insurance is a must. If you ask the rental companies, they can never tell you the full details about the deals available at your location insurance wise because this is a massive profit centre for the outlet.

    It is a rip off and stand alone is the way to go.
