How far in advance can I buy car hire excess insurance?

We show you how far ahead you can buy a car hire excess insurance policy.

There are limits to how early you can purchase your annual car hire excess policy. Each company sets its own rules. By using our handy table, you can find out when you can buy your chosen policy.

When you run a quote we will show you all the annual policies that fit the criteria you have entered. If a policy is not yet available to purchase (for example if you were looking to buy a policy for the following year), we will show a tab saying 'Read Me'. By clicking on this you will have the option of receiving an email from us to notify you when the policy can be bought.
