What Does All Inclusive Car Hire Insurance Cover?

We explore exactly what all inclusive cover actually is. Find out why you may need all inclusive car hire insurance, and everything you should consider when choosing a policy.

Given the expression one might assume everything - but actually this is not the case.

In almost every area of the world, car hire agreements exclude certain items on a car or certain types of incident. Typical limitations include:

  • Damage caused by putting the wrong fuel type in the car (e.g. putting diesel in a petrol car)
  • Chipped, cracked or broken windscreens
  • Damaged tyres or punctures
  • Lost keys
  • Locking yourself out your rental car
  • Damage to underside of vehicle
  • Damage to the roof of the car if you are not involved in an accident - so for instance if you scratch the roof by placing goods on it or damage caused by a car park barrier.
  • Roadside assistance for the above types of incident

Car Hire Insurance such as that available through the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance service may be the most appropriate way to ensure you do not face any unwelcome bills at the end of your holiday.

Be aware that one area few car hire insurers cover is damage to the interior of the car (caused by things like spilling drinks, oily stains from footwear, cigarette burns etc.) so treat your vehicle with care.
