Car clubs are becoming more and more popular. Parking can be not only difficult to find but also expensive in the larger cities and, if you only need a car from time to time, joining a car club can be a great solution.
Membership to a car club will usually include all the main insurances for the cars you will drive but you are often left liable for a large excess and for areas that are excluded from the main insurances. These areas can include the windows, mirrors, wheels, roof and underbody.
Through MoneyMaxim you can compare independent excess insurance policies to cover your car club insurance excess. All of these policies will also reimburse you for costs relating to damage to the glass elements, the roof, wheels, tyres and underbody of the vehicle.
When you join a car club it is important you have read any terms and conditions and understand what insurance is included before signing on the dotted line. Once you have signed the membership agreement you are legally bound by the terms and conditions.
Car club excess insurance is available as an annual policy but they can offer European or Worldwide cover. These policies do not cover peer-to-peer hires.
