Hire car excess cover from Voyager Insurance

While driving carefully is something most people try to do all the time, sometimes car accidents happen that are out of our control.

And if you're driving a hire vehicle at the time of the incident, you're likely to be worried about the big bill you'll be left with at the end.

Hire car companies may hand you a hefty excess charge to cover the first part of their insurance costs to repair the vehicle/s involved in the accident, which could potentially cause you a significant financial burden.

However, by taking out hire car excess insurance with Voyager Insurance you can have peace of mind that you'll be protected from these unexpected surprises and will be covered should the rental vehicle firm ask you to pay their excess.

What does hire car excess cover protect against?

Having car hire excess insurance is another way of preparing for the worst, and if you are concerned that you won't be able to afford to pay for damage to be repaired on a rented vehicle or the excess on the hire company's own insurance, it could be an ideal product for you.

By taking out Voyager hire car excess insurance, this excess will be paid back to you. It even covers damage to the vehicle that is often excluded by standard collision damage waivers, including the tyres, glass and underbody.

The policy will also cover you if you accidently put the incorrect fuel in the hire motor or lose the keys to the car.

You can take out cover for exactly the type of journey you take. You might want a product that protects you for a single trip of up to 180 days if you are planning on hiring a vehicle to visit family, attend a wedding or go away for a week with your loved ones.

Alternatively, if you regularly rent cars, either as part of your work or because you often enjoy road trips around the UK, the annual multi-trip policy could be ideal for you. This protects you for up to 31 days for each excursion and you won't have to worry about taking out hire car excess cover each time you rent a vehicle.
