Insurance FAQs for AXA Premium

What if the Rental Company says that your AXA Premium Insurance Policy will not work on their car?

This is incorrect, your AXA Premium Insurance Policy will work with any car you have rented through our website as an add-on*.

*Insurance cover is subject to policy terms and conditions which can be accessed through the Manage Booking section of our website.

What is the Difference between the AXA Premium product and the Car Rental Company's policy?

If your rental car is damaged or stolen during your rental period you will be liable to pay an excess of up to €3,000 (Please see 'What is an excess' FAQ for more information on this).

AXA's Premium Insurance will then refund you for this amount. The policy also has a wide range of additional benefits including:

Cover for your Personal Belongings

Vehicle Key Cover

Roadside and Towing

Misfueling Cover

*Insurance cover is subject to policy terms and conditions which can be accessed through the Manage Booking section of our website.

The car rental insurance will vary depending on which supplier you use. Some of the products you may be offered are shown below:

Excess Reduction Policy

What does this mean? For an additional cost at pick-up, you will be liable to pay less of an excess in the event of an accident e.g. 50% reduction

Zero Excess

What does this mean? You will pay an additional cost for the supplier to forfeit their right to hold an excess amount on your credit card at the desk at pick-up.

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