Zest Car Rental (previously known as Economy Car Hire) prices are included in the Moneymaxim Car Hire Comparison Service
'No Excess' Zest Car Rental are a UK based rental broker who sell car hire marketed on the basis there are no excesses payable on the rental. This is very attractive to car hirers who find the high level of excesses and high cost of the excess waiver insurance offered by the car hire companies unacceptable. Its main markets are Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Madeira, Malta, Croatia, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Greece and Florida.
Renters should however be aware that there are still some areas of the car which are still excluded from the standard 'No Excess Car Hire' Package as the following items would still be charged for items including:
Renters can insure these through an add on policy from Zest Car Rental for around £4 per day. Alternative policies can be bought through the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance comparison service from around £1.60 a day. The cost of the Zest policy covering the additional areas make theirs an attractive offer as long as the underlying rental costs are competitive, especially if you want an additional driver, which also comes with most Zest prices. If you make multiple bookings or are taking a longer trip do check the annual policies from MoneyMaxim, which commence from under £34 a year.
Zest Car Rental do use local car hire firms, and reports from users have indicated that the age of cars can be more variable than those from the majors - but it's on the No Excess element that the company really differentiate themselves.
