We also offer our unique MoneyMaxim car hire excess insurance service. It's a top tip from Martin Lewis and the service has been featured in many national papers from the Daily Mail to the Guardian. If you are hiring a car in Europe this winter, the chances are that, when you get to the car hire desk, you will be offered the chance to protect the excess (which can be as much as €1600) through the car hire firm. But skiers and snowboarders would be much better advised to use the MoneyMaxim car hire excess insurance service to both save money and get better cover.
Not only is cover from the car hire companies usually more expensive (typically costing €10 a day - whilst companies on the MoneyMaxim panel charge from just £1.70), but, even when buying their 'extra cover policies', these can exclude damage to windows, glass, under-body, wheels and tyres. MoneyMaxim partners all cover these items. This can be a crucial component of the cover, especially when you bear in mind that a windscreen damage (especially over the winter when the gritters and snowploughs are out in force) is the most common claim and can easily set you back £300-£400.
Policies from hire companies typically reduce their standard excess to say €100 - the MoneyMaxim panel remove the excess altogether.
In the EU it's only the excess that needs covering but in the USA and Canada car hire directly arranged often comes with no insurance at all as standard - MoneyMaxim also offer policies that will provide full protection in the US and Canada. So you can drive with confidence.
We also offer a MoneyMaxim helpline on 01183 218197 for further assistance.
