Renting a car?
Do you know that the Excess can cost more than the car? This insurance is a great way to save money and have peace of mind when you rent a car - a great selection of policies available.
When a rental car is damaged or stolen, the driver is asked to pay the first portion of the repair or replacement costs. This is known as the Excess.
You can take out an inexpensive policy daily or annually to cover you not only for the total amount of Excess for which you are liable if the car is damaged or stolen, but also for damage to the roof and undercarriage of the car, and windows and tyres.
There are several companies offering this type of policy. One of the original companies is insurance4carhire.com It was Founded in 2002 by Larry Ursich, Insurance4carhire is an innovative internet insurance company whose core business is the provision of car rental Excess insurance. For 10 years, Larry ran his own car rental broking company, working closely with Dollar and Budget. After noting the high costs being charged by the car rental companies for Excess cover, Larry decided to develop a better alternative: annual car rental Excess insurance products offering customers convenience, peace of mind and very significant savings.
Another company is Questor Insurance Car Hire Insurance Questor is a new type of insurance broker conceived and set-up to transact business on the Internet. They say unlike their competitors they have not taken products sold over the telephone and then converted them to the Internet, they have designed all of their products specifically to be sold on the Internet.
Questor employs a sophisticated but simple to use web application which allows their clients to manage their insurance portfolio at a time to suit them without having to contact Questor.
