Avoid extra insurance payment on hire cars by checking out online information provided by Carrentals.co.uk

Few things frustrate travellers more than paying for things they don’t need. How much insurance to buy for a rental car is one of the most confusing issues out there, but Carrentals.co.uk has written an online guide to help people avoid paying for cover they don’t need.

After polling some of the two million Brits who rent a car during the summer holiday season, Carrentals.co.uk discovered that the most common annoyance was the pressure exerted by rental agents to purchase additional coverage at the time of pick up. Most of the time, extra coverage in unnecessary and can add up to £2,000 to the bill.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, comments: “Having the right amount of coverage on a rental car is important, but most car hire companies try to take advantage of their customers by pushing them to buy extra insurance. It’s an annoying game they play, and sadly often neglects the most frequent trouble areas like lost keys or damaged windscreens.”

The rules of the road regarding proper rental insurance cover is nicely presented in a new video by carrentals.co.uk that can be viewed at http://www.carrentals.co.uk/extras/car-hire-insurance. They also have an excellent site devoted to common questions and the correct answers at http://forum.carrentals.co.uk/collision-damage-waiver-excess-insurance.

“One of our goals is to arm travellers with the right information to help them manage their budget effectively,” Gareth adds. “The video lays it all out there in black and white so that you won’t feel pressured to pay for cover you don’t really need. There definitely is a good case for buying extra cover, so we’ve created our own policy for our clients that tosses out the unnecessary things and keeps the good ones at a price everyone can appreciate.”
