We review Questor Car Hire Excess Insurance, and explain the cover offered.Visit Questor
By using car hire excess insurance, car renters have the opportunity to insure themselves against the excess charges that rental companies dish out should the car rented be stolen or sustain damage.
If you want to compare all car hire excess insurance policies available through MoneyMaxim that are tailored to your requirements, visit our car hire excess insurance hub.
Questor Insurance offers cover at substantially reduced rates (compared to those available directly from car rental companies at their rental depots) offering renters the opportunity to buy either short term (up to 180 days) or annual policies.
Excess costs up to £10000 (and an option to increase this to £75,000 on cdw policies) are covered by this policy. Questor Insurance also cover rentals in your home town.
Drivers between the ages of 21 and 84 can be covered without any of the loadings being applied that are placed on younger or older drivers. In addition, a useful feature is that a second driver can be added to the policy and they can make independent rentals if an additional premium is paid. Most policies will only provide cover if the policyholder is the person taking out the rental agreement.
The policy allows up to 6 drivers to be named on the policy as standard - the additional drivers must of course be named on the car rental agreement.
£300 of baggage cover is included and the tyres, undercarriage and wheels are covered - this is not normally the case when policies are taken from car rental companies themselves
Questor Insurance offer a wide range of options on their annual policies enabling you to tailor it to your requirements. Options include dual lead driver policies, and battery failure cover
The Questor car hire excess insurance policy is underwritten by certain underwriters at Lloyd's and the policies are covered under the FSCS (Financial Services Compensation Scheme)
Claims are handled by Orchard Administration Ltd. Full details of how to make a claim will be included within your paperwork when you purchase a policy.
