Arrange Christmas Holiday car hire excess insurance and car hire now

Whilst flying down to Nice, France last Sunday afternoon I was reading the easyJet December in flight magazine. This was reminding people to book flights for skiing and other other winter holiday breaks.

You might have spent last Friday "Black Friday" shopping and yesterday doing your on-line Christmas shopping, however are you going away over Christmas or for New Year?

Have you arranged car hire and if so arranged to save money and buy your car hire excess insurance from an independent car hire excess insurance company? If that was not on your "Christmas to do list".

If you are going away and renting a car, make yourself an action plan. Remember the cheapest car hire company might not be the best deal. You could find you are trapped paying out large excess insurance charges. Buying a full tank of fuel at the car rental company's price and having to return it empty. Really great if you are only going to use half a tank.

At the insurance4carrental.com site there are choice of companies to choose from including Holiday Autos and Economy Car Hire

Once you have arranged the car hire itself go back on line and arrange the car hire excess insurance. A fantastic choice of companies to choose from including Worlwideinsure, Questor Insurance, iCarhireinsurance, carhireexcess.com, insurance4carhire/daily excess, essential Travel and Protectyourbubble. Direct routes to these site can be found here.

Finally, yes there is still something  else on that check list - Travel insurance - Very handing 
if your Holiday is delayed or:
  • Missed departure?
  • Lost your passport?
  • Personal money stolen?
  • Damaged your ski equipment?
  • Personal Accident?
  • Abandon your holiday before you leave the UK
  • Catastrophe — fire, flood, earthquake or storm
  • Medical Emergency — Hospital — Emergency Dental Treatment
  • Legal Advice
  • Mugging
(Always check with insurance company excactly what is covered)
