What Cover does Car Hire Insurance provide for Carjacking and Road Rage?

When might road rage or carjacking cover prove useful in a car hire insurance policy?

If you needed to pay the excess on your car rental as a result of damage to the vehicle caused by a road rage or carjacking incident you would be able to claim on your car hire insurance policy as long as it is not considered to have been instigated by the insured driver. In this instance it could be considered that the hirer's negligence was to blame.

Many companies also offer financial compensation if you are injured in a road rage incident - typically up to £1000 - although some do require an accident to have been part of the problem. For more information review policies on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance comparison service. After running a quote, you will be presented with a table of results. By clicking on the 'Details' button next to each policy more information will appear including the level of carjacking or road rage cover within that particular policy.
