I dented my hire car whilst parking, leading to a bill of £1,180 from the hire car company. Carhireexcess.co.uk was very clear about what documents it needed in order to process my claim, and once I had submitted everything I received all of the money within a fortnight. Very simple to deal with and a happy outcome for me. Would definitely recommend.

What is Car Hire Excess Insurance?
If you're planning to rent a car abroad, purchasing a car hire excess insurance policy online before you travel has now become the 'must have' travel companion. It helps you avoid unexpected and overpriced hidden charges by car rental companies. Most car rental companies will make you liable for the first portion of the repair or replacement costs to your car hire, if you unfortunately have an accident. This charge is known as the 'excess' or 'collision damage waiver' and could cost you anything up to £2,000 - even if it's just a small scratch on your rental car. Car hire companies will offer you the option to cover this 'excess' at excessive and overpriced rates but you can avoid these rip-off charges by availing of cheaper costs online before you travel with CarHireExcess.co.uk. Car Hire Excess Insurance is a reimbursement policy which is designed to help you cover these large 'excess' costs.

What is Supplemental Liability Insurance?
Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) is an optional extra available when you select Worldwide Car Hire Excess Insurance. If you purchase Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI), your policy will provide cover against costs that you may become legally liable to pay, in respect of third party bodily injury and damage to property, as a result of an accident whilst using the rental vehicle for a trip in or through the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, South or Central America.
The cover provided by this policy shall apply only in excess of amounts recoverable under any primary applicable insurance, and the maximum that will be paid in respect of all claims arising from any one accident shall be the difference between the amount recoverable under any other insurance and US $1,000,000.
