What insurance policies are offered by Economy Car Rentals?

We explain the policies offered by Economy Car Rentals, and see how they compare to other policies.

Economy Car Rentals are a Greek based car hire firm who hire cars who offer a what they term a 'no surprises' car hire service.

When we ran a series of test quotes we found that they offered an innovative way of including additional costs for snow chains, additional drivers, children's car seats etc, but still added some extras such as a mandatory winterisation fee. The company do not build in excess insurance cover as standard so for many car hirers that needs to be added as well.

The suggestion of buying this cover at the desk is normally a more expensive way of protecting yourself against being charged a significant sum following an accident, vandalism or the theft of your vehicle. Do check guidelines rates against those that can be found on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance comparison service.

They are good though at showing the fuel policies that apply, and often add extra features such as additional drivers.

Please note that Economy Car Rentals is a totally separate company from Economy Car Hire, who also provide excess free car rental.
