Yes, you can often avoid paying the rental excess by accepting the rental agent’s own full insurance policy (often referred to as SCDW). This is often an expensive way of insuring against your rental excess. We offer our own Rental Cover or Full Protection policy to insure your excess deposit. In the event of a claim (damage to the car etc), the rental agent will charge for repairs up to the value of the excess amount, however on return, you simply claim against your policy with us. Third party policies are also available, however we recommend you check the level of cover is comparable as whilst sometimes cheaper, the cover is often less.
