Renting a car is a popular, accessible and beneficial service for many when they are abroad. Along with car hire comes car rental insurance, which also can provide some hidden costs and a sting from the excess fees that you may need to pay out in the event of an accident.
Excess fees can be as high as £2000, with some insurance companies charging for even the smallest of scratches or dents. Excess fees can be charged for damage to a rental vehicle and theft. Even if it wasn’t your fault, you may be getting a high bill from the insurance company.
To protect yourself, car excess insurance is a solution to keep a peace of mind. DirectCarHireExcess provide you with a policy to protect you from the high charges of excess fees. Making a claim is easy and simple with our online claim service, making our service as stress-free as possible.
