Van hire insurance, excess and security deposits

We understand how frightening picking a van excess cover product can be. The additional fees that are included in the price of hiring a vehicle can be very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the van
  • Any extras (e.g. extra drivers & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Renting a Van in Leeds with no Excess Held on Your Card

The van will already be 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 rental vans in Leeds come with CDW in the price displayed, there's usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the van. The insurance excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the van is severely damaged, written off or stolen. However, the excess amount on hire vans can be very high. It's normally between £950 to £2,200. If the van is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you pick up the van, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't charged to your card as a normal transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the vehicle. You won't usually have to pay foreign currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the amount is fully refunded to your card with nothing further to pay.

If you plan to pay by debit card, the insurance excess will be taken from your account and refunded when the vehicle is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess amount is often high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up cover at the collection desk.

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

Renting a Van in Leeds with Cross Border Fees Included

If you want to collect your vehicle in Leeds and take it over the border , we strongly recommend to check the terms and conditions. Many van hire brands insist that you inform them when you collect the van; and will charge extra fees to top up the insurance. If you fail to do so, it's possible that the rental van will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

You'll find the information relating to cross border policies by checking the Rental terms and viewing the Cross Border Rules section.

If you're struggling to find the cross border terms and conditions please get in touch with our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Hiring a Van in Leeds with a Low Deposit

When you collect the van, you will often be asked to leave a deposit on your debit card or credit card. The security deposit can vary significantly dependent on the size of the vehicle and the insurance excess . Car rental Security deposits in Leeds can range between £0 and £2,200.

We compare all of the van hire options with a low security deposit and in some instances no deposit at all except for fuel.
