Essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the car, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. To view the detailed information see the T&Cs on the extras page of the website
Essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your car hire booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a range of extra charges that standard insurance doesn't.

Before driving away ,check the vehiclerental T&Cs. There may be extra charges for crossing borders etc so make sure you understand these.
If you've bought Essential excess cover on the website or have your own policy, always take some time to inspect the car for pre existing damage. We advise taking photographs on your phone of each section of the car. If damage exists on the car that is not highlighted in your rental contract you should report this to the vehicle hire company
Be sure to double check the fuel type for the vehicle and check which side of the vehicle the filler cap is on
Beside the exterior, we also recommend documenting all damage to the inside of the car and informing the car hire provider before driving away
All the vehicles listed on the website include a full to full fuel policy. You should double check that the fuel tank is full before you set off. If it isn't you must report this to the car hire company immediately
Spending a little time to take photos and report any damage, whether internal or external, will help to prevent any issues with the vehicle rental company when you return the car
Remember to inspect the wheels and locks for damage as well. Locks and wheels are easy to miss if you're in a hurry to start your trip
