Hiring a Van in Preston without an Excess Held on Your Card

Your van will be fully insured for theft and accidents included in the hire fee you'll see our website. This type of insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rental vans in Preston 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 total amount you'd be required to pay if the van is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess amount on hire vans can be very high. It's normally between £900 to £3,000. If the van is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you pick up the hire van, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money is not taken from your card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the van. You won't usually pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the rental van is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

If you plan to pay by debit card, the excess will be taken from your account and fully refunded when the van is dropped off. If you plan to use debit card on collection, as the excess is often high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover on our website or to buy top up insurance at the collection desk.

If you'd like to hire a van in Preston with a £0 or reduced excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.
