Affordable Car Hire teams up with Halo Insurance

News Release from Affordable Car Hire Tuesday March 15th 2011

We are delighted to have joined forces with Halo Insurance to offer comprehensive, low cost car hire excess insurance protection to our customers.

Most hire car drivers now understand that unless they purchase excess insurance they are liable for charges of around £1,000 if the car is damaged or stolen, even if it's not their fault and customers increasingly want to protect themselves against these charges. By teaming up with Halo Insurance, we are able to meet this customer demand whilst at the same time save them money when compared to the traditional way of buying this insurance at the rental desk when vehicles are collected.

Affordable Car Hire have a sophisticated online booking engine which enables customers to search for a range of vehicles from different rental companies in over 6,500 destinations around the world. As part of the relationship with Halo Insurance, our customers will be able to buy the company's new "Supermax" excess insurance policy when they are booking their car, saving both time and money.

The Supermax Policy acts as an excess reimbursement policy to protect customers against their excess liability if a rental vehicle is damaged or stolen. The policy also automatically includes additional cover, such as Vehicle Key Replacement and Lock Out Protection as standard. Supermax even includes cover for vulnerable parts of the vehicle that are often excluded by other excess policies such as tyres, windscreens, roof and undercarriage. Prices for the Supermax excess insurance policy start from just £4.50 a day, a saving of over 50% when compared to the typical prices charged by rental companies themselves.

Angela Day, founder of Affordable Car Hire said "We have a clear commitment to our customers to provide high quality rental vehicles and deliver a premium service at affordable prices at all times. Offering customers the option of buying cost effective excess insurance at the point of booking is a natural extension of that ethos. The Supermax Excess Insurance Policy directly supports that fundamental principle as it's not only more cost effective, but is also more comprehensive than the alternative products that are available at the rental desk. We're delighted to be working with Halo Insurance to offer this innovative product to our customers."

Ernesto Suarez, CEO and founder of Halo Insurance Services said, "Many people find car hire insurance confusing, and often don't realise that even though a rental vehicle is insured, they could still end up with a large excess bill if the vehicle is damaged or stolen, even if it's just for a small chip to the windscreen! We've developed our product with Affordable Car Hire to be easy to understand, and to offer comprehensive protection against the range of excess insurance charges that customers could potentially find themselves exposed to. Affordable Car Hire has a reputation for offering quality products at affordable prices and we feel that our insurance products are an ideal compliment to their existing service."
