What insurance benefits are available?

On carhiremarket.com, depending on the car rental supplier, the following insurances can be included in the offer:

  • Supplementary Liability Insurance (SLI)
    This will increase the 3rd party liability that will ensure the rental driver is covered should he / she cause damage to someone else or someone else’s property.
  • Theft Protection (TP)
    Should the rental vehicle be stolen or damage occur to the rental vehicle due to a theft attempt, this insurance protects the rental driver from costs incurred. Normally comes with a set excess amount.
  • Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)
    This protects the rental car driver and the car against costs incurred due to damage. If CDW is not included in the rental offer and the car is damaged, the rental driver may need to pay for the full repair costs. The insurance most of the time does not cover damage to key areas of the car such as tyres, windows, undercarriage and the roof.
  • Personal Accident Insurance (PAI)
    This protects the passengers of the rental vehicle.
  • Insurance4carhire
    Insurance4carhire is a 3rd party insurance broker which offer an additional insurance that reduces the excess (CDW and TP) of the rental vehicle to £0. This product covers damage to tyres, windows, undercarriage and the roof, which most car rental supplier’s own insurance does not cover. Furthermore, the product includes insurance coverage for loss of luggage & personal effects, loss or theft of car rental keys and misfueling.

Attention: Generally the TP and CDW comes with an excess and the amount of this excess will vary. Some offers on carhiremarket.com will come with £0 excess. It is possible for you to reduce the excess to £0 during your booking by choosing Insurance4carhire.
