with an article by Miles Brignall on How to cut excess costs.
The following week on the 28th March,2010, this new car hire excess insurance service had an article by Chiara Cavaglieri in The Independent on Sunday. The article was entitled "When hiring a car, stop before you pay the excess cover The price you pay for insurance at the rental desk is unlikely to be a bargain, warns Chiara Cavaglieri"
There was price comparisons with "Dailyexcess.com, for example, charges £4.75 a day for worldwide cover, while iCarhireinsurance offers excess policies for Europe from £2.99. Compared to the £9.99 per day that rental companies can charge, the potential savings are substantial. As well as being more expensive, not all hire firms will cover damage to windows, tyres or undercarriages, which many standalone providers cover as standard."
There is more and more competion in this market and insurance4carrental.com currently has five major providers advertising. Two of them are part of the same company, but the site has recently compiled a page showing all the providers in the market and this can be found at: http://www.insurance4carrental.com/Car_Hire_excess_services.htm
