Car hire terms and conditions

Some car hire websites almost seem to go out of their way to complicate renting a car. When you are booking a car for the first time there are lots of terms and conditions to look through. It can be quite confusing in comparison to booking other travel services such as flights and accommodation.

Damage Excess Waivers are well worth investing in when hiring a car. If you have an accident while driving your hire car then you are responsible for the full damage amount. Damage Excess Waivers are normally very cheap at about 2.50 (pounds) per day and offer great piece of mind. This way you will be covered. An accident report is required from the police.
