What insurance policies are offered by Enterprise?

We explain the ins and outs of Enterprise Car Hire insurance policies, including CDW Excess Waiver and Theft Waiver policies.

Enterprise Rent a Car offer car rentals internationally with corporate offices in the UK, US, Canada, Germany, France, Spain and Ireland.

They usually offer CDW insurance and Liability Insurance with their vehicles dependent on the location, so please read the conditions carefully.

Excess ProtectionIn the UK the Excess Protection policy sold by Enterprise reduces excess amount to zero except on Elite Electric vehicles where it is reduced to 1000 euros.

The cost of this policy varies by vehicle size but as at October 2021 for an economy sized vehicle hired in Germany it would cost £26.43 per day.

Roadside assistance protection (RAP)This covers the costs of tyre replacement and repairs or replacement of the vehicles glass if it is chipped or cracked. Replacement keys and at fault roadside assistance callouts (but not where there has been a breach of the rental agreement) are also covered - think things like flat batteries, running out of fuel etc. RAP costs (as at Oct 21) £6.34 per day for an economy car rented in Germany.

Personal Accident Insurance/Personal Effects CoverageThis is optional for death and injury expense benefits and to cover personal items within the car. You may already have travel insurance which covers these. Example cost £4.88 per day for economy car rented in Germany.

Some users prefer the in house Enterprise cover policies as it saves the hassle of a post incident claim (this being dealt with at the car hire station on return), rather than having to pay for the cost of an incident and then claiming the cost back from an insurer as is the case with standalone insurance policies.

Excesses up to £75,000 and the areas above can be covered through independent insurance policies compared on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance service and these cost from around £1.70 per day (from around £7 for a van) so we would suggest customers planning to rent an Enterprise Hire Car check prices there.

The recommended way forward is to run a quote for car hire excess insurance or van hire excess insurance through Moneymaxim and then compare features and prices. You can then make a considered judgement as to your preferred way forward.
