It is an essential if you are renting a van and the policy only costs £7.99 per day.
Van hire insurance is normally provided on the same basis as car hire insurance in the UK. There is "Third party insurance" - whereby you are covered for any damage to other vehicles and resulting injuries to other parties. Then there is "Collision Damage Waiver" or "Loss Damage Waiver" this limits the van hirer's liability for the van he / she is renting to a fixed amount - the excess (also known as Super CDW, the Deductible, or Non-Waiver) which is often up to £2000.
If the van is damaged during the hire, you will have to pay out this excess amount before the van hire company's insurance policy will cover the rest. That is why you should take out van hire excess insurance.
So if you are moving flat or house and renting a van, buying a load of furniture from a DIY superstore or your van is in for repairs and you need to hire a van, don't forget the van hire insurance and the web site to find this at is www.insurance4vanrental.com
