What does Daily Car Hire Excess Insurance mean?

We explain why a daily car hire excess insurance policy might be you best choice to protect you when hiring a car

Daily Car Hire Excess Insurance

Here are just a few reasons why a Daily Car Hire Excess Insurance might be your best choice:

  • If you hire cars for less than 14 days over the next twelve months a single trip policy will be cheaper
  • If are unlikely to want to extend your rental agreement then there is no reason to pay extra for an annual
  • If hiring on multiple occasions you are happy to buy separate policies (an annual policy means less admin!). If you have different lead drivers on two different hires then separate polices would work. You can buy annual policies which cover more than one lead driver but they can be pricier.

If you are likely to hire only once or twice over the next twelve months and are hiring for less than 14 days in total over that period it's almost certain that a daily car hire excess insurance policy will suit you best.

These policies cover you for the exact period you are hiring your car and you would need to buy more than one policy if, for example, you were hiring for two 5 day periods.

If hiring for a longer period or more frequently it's highly likely that an Annual Car Hire Excess Insurance will suit you better.
