What insurance policies are offered by Dollar?

We explain the pros and cons of Dollar Car Hire's CDW Excess Waiver and Theft Waiver policies.

Dollar car rental are part of the Hertz group, and most bookings are now served from the Hertz desk across Europe. In the US and Canada they continue to operate as a separate company, but also have offices in the UK, across Europe, in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and well as other locations worldwide.

They offer fully inclusive packages for the US and Canada which cover CDW and SLI, and can be upgraded to include fuel, additional drivers and more.

In Europe they tend to have excesses of around £750 which can either be covered using their in house protection policies (they use the Hertz Supercover policy - see What insurance policies are offered by Hertz?, or through the insurance companies represented on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance service.

Some hirers prefer taking cover from Dollar as if there is damage any claims are settled at the car hire station on return, rather than having to pay for the cost of an incident and then claiming the cost make from an insurer as is the case with standalone insurance policies.

So you can decide your preferred way forward we suggest you compare the independent policies - available from around £2 per day through companies featured on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance comparison service and compare prices and features to the in house Dollar products. You will then be in a position to make a balanced decision.
