How to Hire a Car in Lotusvale with zero Excess

The hire car will be fully covered for accidents and theft included in the rental fee you'll see the website. This cover is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our hire cars in Lotusvale include CDW in the price , there's usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card on collection. The insurance excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess amount on rental cars can be very high. It's often between £950 to £3,000. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay some or all of the excess.

On collection of the hire car, the insurance excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't charged to your card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the vehicle. You don't usually pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, this amount is fully refunded to your card without anything further to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental 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 debit card on collection, as the excess amount is often high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the rental desk.
