Why are there restrictions on UK usage?

We explore your options when looking for a Car Hire Excess Insurance policy to cover UK car hire.

This relates particularly to annual car hire insurance policies. Some car hire companies try to restrict drivers to hires that are taken outside the UK. This is because they are discouraging drivers who are 'frequent hirers' - say those who don't own a car, but hire one every week or so to undertake a journey.

If you want your car hire insurance policy to include flexible UK usage just run a quotation through the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance service stating that you need cover in your country of residence (assuming of course that you are a UK resident!). We will then display companies who can help you - what's more their prices are within a pound of companies who might have restrictions!
