Your Excess Explained

When you hire a car anywhere you are normally liable to pay an amount towards the repair or replacement of the car if there is an accident or any damage. This is called an excess. The excess amount is often secured on a credit/debit card or requested from you as a deposit before leaving the rental location.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW): Collision Damage Waiver is insurance usually included in the rental price of a hired car. It provides cover for damage that occurs to your vehicle itself. This means that the car you’re driving is insured, however there is almost always an excess.

Excess: If you have an accident or there is damage to your vehicle, the CDW covers the cost of the repairs. Your excess is the ‘first part’ of any repair amount that you will be expected to pay yourself. It’s not unusual to see this in the range of £250.00 upwards.

Car hire deposits, Sat Nav, Baby seats, Additional driver and European cover are all paid locally and charges are dependent upon the duration of the hire and the supplier.
