All rentals include a standard insurance policy and include Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) and Personal Accident Insurance (PAI), plus Winter cover for winter rentals.

The LDW insurance waives liability in case of damage to the rental vehicle and the driver is only responsible for the excess charges. Excesses are charged locally in Euro.

Windshield & Tyre Insurance (WTI)
This is an additional extra you may be offered when collecting the vehicle

When collecting the vehicle the car rental company will offer you to take an upgraded insurance policy in order to reduce the excess. This insurance also includes the windshield and tyre insurance (WTI). The charges vary depending on car category and rental company.

If you damage a rental vehicle the excess charges can be very high. You may wish to purchase excess waiver insurance at the time of collecting your vehicle or consider taking out cover before you travel with one of the UK companies offering excess waiver insurance.
