All rentals include a standard insurance policy and include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Waiver (THW).
The CDW 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 Swedish Krona.
The THW insurance removes some of the driver’s responsibility in case of theft and is only responsible for the excess charges.
This is an additional extra you may be offered when collecting the vehicle. PAI is an additional insurance which covers the driver and passengers in the hire car for death, disability and medical expenses. The charge varies depending on the rental company.
When collecting the vehicle the car rental company will offer you to take an upgraded insurance policy in order to reduce excess. The charges vary depending on car category and rental company.
If you damage a rental vehicle the excess charges can be very high. Whilst it is possible to purchase Excess Waiver Insurance at the time of collecting your vehicle, this can also be expensive and generally only reduces the excess. You should consider taking out cover before your depart and one UK company offering excess waiver insurance is Insurance4CarHire. This policy covers you for reimbursement of the insurance excess, accidental damage to the vehicle, windows, tyres and damage caused by sand and ash, loss of car keys, plus many other benefits.*
* Please note Terms and conditions apply
- Insurance4CarHire excess insurance excludes motorhomes, camper-vans and accidental damage to the interior or contents of the vehicle.
- The insurance policy must be taken out in the same name as the lead passenger on the car hire booking.
- You must take out this cover at least the day before collecting your vehicle.
- The policy is only applicable for people aged 21-85 years inclusive and you must also be permanent residents of the European Economic Area (EEA). These policies are always subject to the same exclusions and conditions as stated in the standard insurance provided by the car hire company (unless specifically noted otherwise).
