Car hire excess insurance that covers more than one lead driver

We show what is included in family or dual lead driver car hire excess insurance policies


Many of the car hire insurance companies offer either family policies or dual lead driver policies. These allow more than one driver on the policy to be the lead driver on a car hire agreement. They vary in the type and level of cover provided.

Some have stipulations about who can be included and they all have limits on the number of lead drivers. Some will allow two separate car hires (with two lead drivers on the policy) to overlap. Others will only allow car hires that do not take place at the same time.

Covering multiple lead drivers is only possible on annual policies. European and Worldwide options are available. If any of the drivers are non-UK residents please check the eligibility terms in the policy terms and conditions.

In the table below we outline the differences between the policies available through MoneyMaxim.
