Hiring a car with Autounion without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

Hiring a car with Autounion without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The insurance excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the car is severely damaged, written off or stolen. The excess on rental cars can be very high. It's often between £1,000 to £2,200, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will be required to pay some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the vehicle, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the money isn't charged to your credit card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending payment until you drop off the vehicle. You won't normally have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the rental car is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, this excess amount is fully refunded to your credit card without anything further to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the insurance excess amount will be taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the car is dropped off. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess amount is often very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to buy top up cover at the rental desk.

To view rental options with a £0 or reduced excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.

This insurance also tends to cover other possible costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling costs.

It insures the amount due if the hire car is stolen. It is subject to an excess amount, which means you would need to pay the first part of an insurance claim (usually between £950 to £2,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal.

When you insure your excess with an excess reimbursement policy, however, you'll be reimbursed for any or all of of the excess amount you have to pay (See essential cover). With Premium Cover the excess amount is often reduced to zero.

Third party liability insurance
Third party liability insurance insures in case you cause an accident. If you do, it could injure or kill other people (for instance your passengers, pedestrians or people in other vehicles), or damage property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). As legally they need to be protected, you'd be responsible any claim, or treating injuries or covering their loss of earnings, as well as any legal costs and court costs.

Third party liability is usually subject to an excess, which means you would have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £800 to £1,500, depending on the value of the car, the deal and the country).
