So easy to set up, saves me loads over the year when the Car Hire companies try and stitch me for loads of money for the extra insurance. Most importantly we had to use the cover when my wife had a minor knock. Although a few forms to complete, there were no issues and the customer assistance were so nice and helpful.

What is Car Hire Excess Insurance?
If you're planning to rent a car abroad, purchasing a car hire excess insurance policy online before you travel has now become the 'must have' travel companion. It helps you avoid unexpected and overpriced hidden charges by car rental companies. Most car rental companies will make you liable for the first portion of the repair or replacement costs to your car hire, if you unfortunately have an accident. This charge is known as the 'excess' and could cost you anything up to €2,000 - even if it's just a small scratch on your rental car. Car hire companies will offer you the option to cover this 'excess' at excessive and overpriced rates but you can avoid these rip-off charges by availing of cheaper costs online before you travel with CarHireExcess.ie. Car Hire Excess Insurance is a reimbursement policy which is designed to help you cover these large 'excess' costs.

What is Supplemental Liability Insurance?
Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) is an optional extra available when you select Worldwide Car Hire Excess Insurance. If you purchase Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI), your policy will provide cover against costs that you may become legally liable to pay, in respect of third party bodily injury and damage to property, as a result of an accident whilst using the rental vehicle for a trip in or through the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, South or Central America. CarHireExcess.ie offers Supplemental Liability Insurance of up to $1,000,000. Where the car hire company provides no cover, this limit is reduced to $250,000.
