Insurance excess cover
Why do I need a car hire excess cover?
Most rental car companies hold you liable for the first part of the repairs or compensation costs, also known as the excess, if damage occurs to the car.
In almost all car rental companies you must provide a security deposit for the vehicle that you rent. If there any damage to the car the car rental company keeps that deposit. With Allianz's excess coverage you get all the money back and you can feel completely safe if an accident should occur.
If damage occurs Allianz will reimburse the insured the excess that the car rental company (or other insurance companies) will charge. The policy serves as a supplementary insurance for leased vehicles and covers the excess that will be charged as a result of damage or theft of the rented vehicle during the rental period. That an excess occurs is a prerequisite for reimbursement.
Allianz will pay up to £2,000 in total, for the reimbursement of the excess applied to your car hire insurance, if the insured vehicle is accidentally damaged, involved in an accident or stolen during the rental period.

As the world leader in Travel Insurance, Assistance and Personal Services, we look out for you, 24/7, 365 days a year. You might be a traveller who has lost his luggage. Or the driver of an automobile that has broken down in the desert. Maybe you can no longer attend a concert you had tickets for, or you need sudden care at home. Perhaps you have broken your leg in a ski accident, lost your job, or are an elderly person with a chronic illness. For as many different possibilities and scenarios as there are people, we’re here to help you out of a situation, across the world, around the corner, or in your own home. Our job is to provide you, via your travel agent, car dealer, bank or insurance company, with fast, caring, quality services whenever you need them, wherever you are.
