What is Lock Out Cover and why would I need it?

Find out what you need to know about lock out cover and if it could be useful for you to take out a policy which includes it!

This means that you can claim for the cost of a locksmith to get you back in your rented car if you happen to lock yourself out.

If excess waiver is taken from the car hire companies, it is not cover that is normally provided and therefore the costs are usually borne by the car hirer themselves. However, many of the policies available through the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance comparison service do offer cover - normally covering costs up to about £50 - £100.
