Car Hire Excess Insurance: What Is It?

When you hire a vehicle, the rental company will issue you with a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) which agrees to cover the cost of any damage that befalls the vehicle while it’s in your care. However, if the worst were to happen, you would still be liable to pay the excess – even if it wasn’t your fault. These charges can be quite a shock… and can cause a thousand-pound hole in your wallet!

Don’t worry, we’re here to help. Before or after you sign for your hire car, excess insurance can be purchased through LowerHire to cover any exorbitant charges. For as little as £8.36 for a single trip you can rest assured that you can reclaim any costs if your vehicle is stolen or damaged. So ease the seat back, fold back the soft top and drive off into the sunset – we’ve got you covered.

How Does It Work?
