Standalone Car Rental Excess Cover

Standalone Car Rental Excess Cover

Buying car rental insurance or excess cover is probably the last thing on your holiday to-do list. But did you know you could save up to 50% on car rental insurance by adding this often forgotten item on your holiday prep list? Many of the popular rental car companies offer car rental insurance at an additional cost. This is often charged at a daily rate and comes with many exclusions. However, a standalone policy will cover you for much more and often, at a cheaper rate.

What is a standalone policy?

A standalone policy can be purchased separately from your rental car and can be bought before you leave for your trip.
Some of the most popular rental car insurance companies can offer additional insurance anywhere between $19-$37 per day. Depending on the company, the coverage can vary wildly, often excluding those important things like keys, windscreens, tires and underbody damage.

On the other hand, a standalone insurance policy gives you much greater coverage for around $7-16 and has no excess depending on the country you are in.
