Avoid car hire pitfalls - seasonal newspaper article for late May bank holiday

We have just had the first May Bank Holiday and the second one with be on the 25th May this year.

On Sunday the Express Personal Finance column ran an article "Avoid car hire pitfalls: Five-minute guide to renting a vehicle when on holiday - If  you are booking a hire car for your foreign holiday this summer, try to steer clear of hidden charges."

They are warning of the hard sell of additional insurance at the pick up point for the car. According to MoneySupermarket.com, this can cost as much as £20 a day in some countries, driving up the cost of a fortnight's motoring by another £280.

They quote iCarhireinsurance and they charge £2.99 a day or £39.99 a year. Lauren Mason, marketing manager at that insurance company says "Excess waiver policies from the rental desk are not just more expensive, they often exclude vulnerable areas such as the windscreen, tyres or undercarriage,So even if you pay for the cover and chip your windscreen, you would still be liable to pay for the repair, often at over-inflated prices"
