The continued success of the UK’s first car hire insurance comparison service, from money saving website www.moneymaxim.co.uk continues with the addition of Odyssey Car Hire Insurance to the search engine.
The unique car hire insurance service can save anyone renting a car at home or abroad a significant sum of money.
Greg Holmes at Odyssey Car Hire Insurance Ltd said of the partnership with moneymaxim:
“As a relatively new car hire excess insurance provider, adding ourselves to the burgeoning list of insurance providers on the moneymaxim car hire insurance search engine makes perfect sense. Moneymaxim consumers will be able to see the wider benefits Odyssey Car Hire Excess Insurance offers and use it to make an informed choice.”
Mark Bower, Managing Director of moneymaxim.co.uk comments on the innovative car hire excess insurance comparison service;
“We have been delighted with customer reaction to the introduction of our car hire insurance comparison service and we have clearly identified a need that was not being met until its launch. As we support our online comparison site with a telephone support team we have been to talking to customers who were totally unaware that they could save hundreds of pounds by using car hire excess insurance rather than those offered directly by car hire firms.
Adding Odyssey to our panel makes perfect sense, as they are particularly attractive for those looking for European annual cover with a range of added benefits such as lost and stolen key cover or emergency travel expenses. A key benefit of the moneymaxim service is that it is easy to compare prices and features from around 100 variations of policies in about 60 seconds.

Background Information on the Car Hire Excess Insurance Market:
The car hire excess insurance industry was 'created' back in 2002 when Larry Ursich launched Insurance4carhire. Having a background in the car rental business he realised that the cost of 'insuring the excess' when renting a car from hire firms had grown to such a level that there was potential to create a standalone product offering both better cover and lower costs for consumers.
Over the past 8 years further firms have joined the market, the latest, icarhireinsurance, entering the market in March, 2010. The new entrants have brought with them options and innovation and those looking for this type of insurance can find policies covering not just the hire car excess, but baggage loss, carjacking, cancellation and more. Policies catering for car club members have also recently been introduced.
