You will pay an insurance fee as a part of the price of renting a vehicle. This will fully insure you to drive the vehicle for the duration of the booking.

The standard excess for any rental booking is £750. This amount will be blocked on your card until the vehicle has been returned and the condition of the vehicle has been checked. When making a booking you have the option to reduce this excess down to £250 for an additional fee.
