(OPENPRESS) February 6, 2009 -- This website has been introduced by jmlinsurance.co.uk as a shortcut into car hire excess insurance.
The site offers links to insurance4carhire and questor insurance services. insurance4carhire have been in the business of providing car hire excess insurance since 2002 and jml property services have been introducer agents since 2003.
Questor introduced their product several years later.
A spokesperson for the insurance4carrental.com site said" Currently we are introducing advertising links to two providers, however as there are other companies now involved in this market, if they like to contact us, we could consider adding them to the product lists".
Most car hire companies offer car hire excess insurance on top of the basic car rental price. When you hire a car, your car rental agreement normally includes cover for Collision Damage Waiver (damage to the rental vehicle) and Theft. There is almost always an Excess on the Collision Damage Waiver and Theft.
However you are still liable for the Excess on CDW and Theft. When a rental car is damaged or stolen, the driver is asked to pay the first portion of the repair or replacement costs. This is known as the Excess and this the additional insurance a consumer has to buy.
The prices charged by the car hire companies tend to be much higher than those charged by a specialist like insurance4carhire.
The site also offers advice about what to do and not to do when a consumer rents a car, recent changes in various country's driving legislation e.g. carrying of warning triangles and jackets in France and the costs involved if a rental car key is lost.
As so many people are now adding to blogs the team at insurance4carrental.com have also introduced a "blog site" called "Car Hire Excess Insurance" at http://carhireexcessinsurance.blogspot.com/ all comments and experiences are welcome.
