Car Hire Excess is an online insurer that specialises in cover for car hire excess, in Europe and worldwide. You can purchase Car Hire Excess Insurance in just a few clicks, for as little as as a few euros a day for European cover. Car Hire Excess can cater to your specific needs which is why you’re able to choose a one-trip policy or an annual policy if you’re a more frequent traveller. Irish residents are covered specifically for the excess on their Car Hire Insurance policy. It really pays to get your excess sorted before you go away, as most car rental agreements make you liable for the first portion of the repair or replacement costs. This can vary wildly depending on which company you go with - so it’ll give you peace of mind if you choose Car Hire Excess cover and avoid a nasty sting at the end of your holiday, should something unforeseen happen to the car.
Carhireexcess.com covers adults between the ages of 21 and 84, and the policy includes cover for windows, glass, tyres, wheels, roof and undercarriage. As a pleasant bonus, Car Hire Excess also covers your personal possessions and keys.
