What is Personal Effects Cover (PEC) and do I need it?

We explain exactly what Personal Effects Cover is, and whether you should consider choosing a policy which includes it in your car hire insurance.

This covers loss of possessions locked (and out of sight) in the car. Make sure you understand your obligations when leaving belongings in the car.

Worthwhile considering if your travel insurance either does not offer this cover, or you do not have sufficient 'all-risks' cover for belongings on your home insurance policy but appeals most, in our experience, to those renting in their home country when they wouldn't have travel insurance in place.

Companies offering PEC are detailed on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance service.
