How Does an Excess Reimbursement insurance policy work?

To explain what Excess Cover is, it's important to understand what an 'excess' is. Please see our 'What is an Excess' FAQ for more information.

The excess amount will be determined by the rental company and can vary according to where you live, your destination, your age and the type of vehicle you're renting. If your rental vehicle is damaged during your rental period, you're liable to pay the excess amount to cover the cost of damage and repairs. However, if you purchase an Excess Reimbursement policy, this will reimburse the excess you paid in the event of damage occurring, as well as including a wide range of additional benefits*.

*Please note: subject to terms & conditions of the individual insurance policy
