Remember car hire excess insurance for Easter break

19th March 2010 - The Easter holidays are only a couple of weeks away and the shops are full of Easter eggs. (In some shops they have been available since just after Christmas along with hot cross buns!).

Many people will be taking a break, a late ski break or searching for some spring weather that was starting to appear in the south of England the other day. You could be visting your holiday home or relatives in another country and renting a car when you get to your destination.

It is worthwhile booking in advance in case there are shortages again this year and holiday autos is well worth a visit at http://www.holidayautos.co.uk/cgi-bin/liveweb.sh/QSearch.w?ctryref=GBR&lang=EN&aff=xjeffreymilnerltd

One way you can save money is to buy an annual car hire excess insurance policy. Did you know that when you rent a car, you will find that your car rental agreement normally includes cover for Collision Damage Waiver - CDW (damage to the rental vehicle) and Theft. There is almost always an excess on the Collision Damage Waiver and Theft.
You will need to take out insurance to protect this excess. If you are hiring a car several times a year this can certainly save paying a daily rate. insurance4carrental.com is and advertising service for car hire excess providers. Several companies advertise including
insurance4carhire.com, dailyexcess.com, Questor Insurance and insuremyvanhire.com for vans.

According to the Questor advertising page, "Cover the excess and much more when you hire a car. Save £'s from just £2.98 per day or annual from just £43.68 per year"
Insurance4carhire.com has a good policy for Family & Partners that covers 2 family members - Europe £79 the same company also covers older renters - with policies available for 75 - 85 year olds Europe 75-85 Cost: £ 65 Excess Worldwide 75-85 Cost: £ 75. This is very important as people want to rent cars as they are getting older and don't want to be restricted by their age.
