Hire Car Excess Waiver Insurance

If, like many of our customers, you like to be able to travel independently by hiring a car once you’re on holiday, our optional Hire Car Excess Waiver Insurance extension could be for you.

This new hassle-free policy could save you money as it protects you against the high prices many hire companies can charge if your car is accidentally damaged. It also provides extra cover for many eventualities, leaving you free to enjoy your holiday.

Saga Hire Car Excess Waiver Insurance benefits

Our Hire Car Excess Waiver Insurance means that you can have protection in place before you go, and don’t have to negotiate or pay the high charges at the desk when you collect the car. What’s more, our cover includes all the following as standard:

  • Excess reimbursement up to £4,000 for any single incident or series of incidents during your trip
  • Up to £500 for locksmith charges should you lock yourself out of the vehicle
  • Drop-off charges up to £500 if you return the vehicle late due to an accident, illness or hospitalisation
