Excess Reimbursement Insurance

You can save money with Excess Reimbursement Protection

Standard Collision Damage Waiver still leaves you liable for excess, which means you must still pay the first amount of any damage. This amount can vary depending on the country, the vehicle and the rental duration, however it is often €350 or more, unless you pay a local supplement for Super Collision Damage Waiver.

You can purchase alternative insurance that reimburses the excess you must pay, up to a maximum of €3,300 (or equivalent in local currency) for all claims arising out of any one Rental Agreement. The policy is arranged by Voyager Insurance Services Ltd. and is underwritten by Astrenska Insurance Limited.

This cover can be added when making your booking over the phone. Alternatively, if your holiday is already confirmed, call the team on 021 425 2300, who will add it on for you any time up to 24 hours before you travel.
