How else could I protect my excess?

When you pick your car up, the car hire company counter staff may offer you cover that lets you leave a smaller deposit, or no deposit at all. If you prefer their cover, just let us know: we will remove Full Protection and refund the cost.

Please note: any cover you buy at the counter would involve a contract between you and the car hire company. Since Rentalcars.com would not be involved, we would be unable to help if you were in any way unhappy with the car hire company's product.

Before you decide, make sure you compare:

  1. The Price. What do the two products cost?
  2. The Protection. What do the two products cover?*

* Remember: excesses and exclusions can make a huge difference to a product's value for money, so be sure to find out.
