United Kingdom

 

Damage Waiver

Damage Waiver reduces the liability you are responsible for in the event of damage to and or theft of the vehicle. If Damage Waiver is included in your reservation, then the excess amounts applicable are: cars 1000.00 GBP, MINI MPVs, MPVs, commercial vehicles 1150.00 GBP, all premiums and 4x4s 1400.00 GBP. In Northern Ireland the excess on all commercial vehicles is 1400.00 GBP. If Damage Waiver is not included in your booking, then it is available to purchase and the excess amount for all vehicles is zero. Customers who can provide independent and verified provision to cover damage and theft to the vehicle may be able to decline Damage Waiver - you may wish to determine if your personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If you decline Damage Waiver, you will be required to pay these charges and then seek compensation yourself from your carrier. Damage Waiver is not insurance.

Excess Protection

Excess Protection is an optional coverage that reduces the applicable Damage Waiver excess (see Damage Waiver terms) to all cars 100.00 GBP, MINI MPVs, MPVs and commercial vehicles 250.00 GBP, all premiums and 4x4s 500.00 GBP. In Northern Ireland the reduced excess on all commercial vehicles is 500.00 GBP. You may wish to check if your personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If you decline Excess Protection then you are required to pay any applicable Damage Waiver excess and seek compensation from your carrier. The price of Excess Protection varies by vehicle size and the prices are inclusive of VAT. Premium location fee applies to airports.
