Rental Car Insurance Excess

At Travel Protect, we offer Rental Car Insurance Excess as an optional upgrade to our travel insurance plans. With this upgrade, you can have peace of mind knowing that you can be protected against the financial impact of an unexpected car rental incident.


What is Rental Car Insurance Excess?

Renting a car is a great way to explore a new destination, but it can come with risks. If you get into an accident or your rental car is stolen, you could be liable for the insurance excess amount or the repair costs, which can be thousands of dollars. Rental Car Insurance Excess is designed to protect you from this financial burden, by covering the insurance excess amount (up to $6,000) that you would otherwise have to pay in the event of an accident or theft.

What Does Rental Car Insurance Excess Cover?

Rental Car Insurance Excess covers the insurance excess amount or repair costs (whichever is lower) that you would have to pay if your rental car is stolen or damaged while in your control during the trip. It also covers the cost of returning your rental car to the nearest depot, including related airport concession charges, if you can’t return the car due to a covered event.

It's important to note that Rental Car Insurance Excess is not the same as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) that rental car companies often offer.

How Much Does Rental Car Insurance Excess Cost?

The cost of Rental Car Insurance Excess varies depending on the length of your trip. At Travel Protect, we offer competitive rates for our Rental Car Insurance Excess, with options to suit any budget.

When Should You Get Rental Car Insurance Excess?

If you're planning to rent a car for your trip that includes comprehensive insurance cover, it's always a good idea to consider Rental Car Insurance Excess. Accidents can happen even if you're a careful driver, and the cost of repairs or replacement of a stolen rental car can be significant. By purchasing Rental Car Insurance Excess, you can protect yourself against these risks and travel with greater peace of mind.

At Travel Protect, we offer Rental Car Insurance Excess as an optional upgrade to our travel insurance plans. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about this coverage, please don't hesitate to contact us.
