Hire car terminology explained

Damage Liability

CDW is always included with all car rentals at London. It covers the car for accident damage in the same way the insurance cover you have on your personal car does. CDW includes an excess which you can cover separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Our website also list cars that include CDW with a zero excess

Hire car excess

The hire car at London is insured for damage and theft as part of the rental cost. For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's almost always an insurance excess held on your card* - just like on domestic car insurance in the UK. However, the excess on hire cars can be high. It's usually in the region of £1,200 to £3,000. If you fail to insure the insurance excess amount you will be liable to pay for damage up to the value of the excess amount. Check out our Premium Cover rental car options if you'd like to avoid having a large amount blocked on your card when you collect the car.

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Car hire at London is insured for theft liability ,this is included in the price ( with an excess which is clearly displayed on the site).

When you insure your excess , however, you'll be reimbursed for any of of the excess you have to pay (See our essential cover). Or with Premium Cover your excess is often reduced to zero.
