It might be early August but not too late to buy your Car - Motorhome - Van Hire excess insurance

The peak summer holiday season is well underway with many people now back home and others not going away till later in August or into September.

Are you hiring a car when you take your break? The British and Irish newspapers have been running a lot of reports of consumers having difficulties when the rent a car and unfortunately a lot of the problems are down to the tight margins the car hire companies are working with.

To try and make some more money they have to look at ways to increase their income. Fuel policies whereby you must buy a tank a fuel at the car hire company's price and return it empty regardless if you use it all up. Car hire excess waiver insurance sold at very high daily rates, some companies even telling customers who have bought their own from an independent insurance companies that the particular product will not cover the vehicle which is not the case, but a way to make the customer pay over the odds for the car hire company's own preferred product so they gain a high commission.
Unfortunately the few "bad" car hire companies have tarnished the reputation of the majority who are "the good guys" in that business.
So if you are off on holiday very soon and want to save some money with the car hire buy you car hire – Motorhome Hire excess insurance in advance. The same applies if you are staying at home and moving home or doing some major shopping and hiring a van or even a minibus for a trip to the seaside.
