Buy insurance before you go and save

If you don’t want to be on the hook for costly exclusions, buy rental car coverage before you go. With us, you’ll pay a fraction of the cost of insurance at the rental desk.

Capture the condition of the vehicle

Take pictures & videos of the vehicle before you leave to avoid unfair charges. Ensure any existing damage is marked up on the rental agreement as some cheeky rental car companies tend to charge customers for existing damages.
