Rental broker Affordable Car Hire has launched an excess cover option with Halo Insurance.
The policy will protect drivers if the car is damaged or stolen, as in these instances clients are deemed liable for the excess on their basic hire policy, often around £1,000. Affordable claims the new option is cheaper than buying insurance at a rental desk when vehicles are collected.
The Supermax policy is offered on Affordable’s website and covers Affordable’s 6,500 locations worldwide. It includes key replacement and lock out protection as standard and covers tyres and windscreens plus the roof and underside of the vehicle. Rates start at £4.50 a day, which Affordable claims is a saving of more than 50% on typical rental company rates.
Affordable is also running a sales promotion throughout March with free upgrades and additional driver offers. Free cancellation is also offered up to 24 hours before rental.
