As well as being easy to use, friendly and of course, stress free, we offer two different levels of insurance when you hire a car with us.
Our essential cover doesn't cover things like cleaning fees, mechanical repairs, third party injury, loss of theft/damage to content in the car and other things. For more info see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website
Essential Cover includes fire, weather, theft, damage caused to the vehicle, flushing the engine after misfuelling, key cover and much more.
Our essential cover, offered when you make your vehicle booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a selection of extra costs that standard insurance doesn't.
You can pay with American Express, Visa or a Mastercard credit card or a debit card issued by a bank or credit card company when hiring through us.
It's incredibly easy on the website to filter which car hire brands will accept debit card. Just use the filters on the second page to compare which car rental brands do accept your card type when you pick up the car.
Don't forget that often car rental brands that do accept debit card at the desk are not as cheap as car hire companies that accept credit card only.
You can book using a number of different currencies including British Pounds (GBP),US Dollars (USD) and South African Rand (ZAR).
If you've included Essential or Basic Cover with your car rental, it often means that you'll need a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You'll usually be given the opportunity to pay for a top up policy by the hire partner when you collect the car, this then enables you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.
It's important to consider when deciding if you'd like to use a debit card on collection, car rental companies frequently block an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold can be a large amount of money and if you opt to pay with a debit card this will be debited from your bank account and not refunded until a couple of weeks after completion of your rental contract.
Most of the Cowley Airport Canada car hire companies we include on the website will accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; sometimes these do have special T&Cs related with them. Be careful to review the contract terms if you intend to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.
Premium insurance is the highest option for car hire insurance we offer.
Many of our clients choose the Premium Cover option when hiring a vehicle because it usually reduces the excess to zero meaning that the customer has no large security deposit or car rental insurance excess risk. You can also often collect the car using debit cards with Premium Cover if credit card is a problem.
You're able to buy Premium Cover along with your car rental, so that you know the total price of everything before you pay.
We want you to be able to make an informed decision relating to which car rental insurance product is right for you, we work closely with our car rental partners to provide you the option to buy a Premium cover product.
