Our standard insurance excess is £2,500.
Our standard insurance excess is £2,500 per car. If you are driving multiple cars you the excess applies to each car you drive – it is not a maximum for the experience.
Although, unlike some companies, we don't take this money from you before your hire, we recognise that not everyone is comfortable carrying this risk. So we've created an exclusive Collision Damage Insurance Waiver policy that you can add to any of our experiences for one simple, low cost payment.
The insurance excess applies in any instance of damage where we cannot claim against a third party. It only applies to our cars and only where they are on hire from us. The Waiver reduces the insurance excess to zero in most instances. The Waiver is, of course, not a licence to mistreat our cars. So there are exceptions.
The following causes of damage are excluded:
The car being driven outside the Highway Code rules
Careless driving or contact with static objects
To tyres and wheels caused by kerbing or other obstacles
To the interior beyond normal wear and tear, such as tears and scuffs
Failing to follow our advice for operating the vehicle resulting in mechanical damage
Misuse resulting in mechanical damage
Theft of personal items are also not covered
In the event of damage caused by lack of care or misuse, the driver may be liable for the full cost of repair irrespective of the £2,500 excess.
The Waiver applies per driver. So if there are two or more drivers, you will need a Waiver for each one.
To take out the policy just select the one for your experience and bring proof of purchase with you when you arrive for our drive. Or call 01527 893733 and we can process this for you by phone.
