What are the benefits?

RentalCover.com's policies typically cost 50% less than the policies sold by the rental companies and we seek to give our customers absolute transparency on their policies. We have none of the exclusions that other rental companies hide in their policies, such as tyre and windscreen repairs/replacement (which account for 80% of all claims outside of the US!). The following region-by-region guide may assist:
 

Additional drivers who are on the rental agreement with you are covered free of charge. Average saving compared to rental companies is 50%
