the online advertising promotion web site for providers of car hire excess insurance products like and questor insurance are reminding potential customers worldwide that these car hire excess insurance products can be bought online from anywhere in the world, subject to the insurance provider‘s terms and conditions.

This means if you are a resident of France, Ireland, Spain, South Africa, USA etc you can buy this important insurance on your credit card in your local currency.

When a car is hired the customer can greatly reduce the costs associated with hiring a car by independently obtaining cover for the excess for any damage to the vehicle. Buying a Collision Damage Waiver from the hire car company can still leave you with a bill of a thousand pounds or so if the car is damaged while in your care, because of the insurance excess (the amount you must contribute if your car is damaged while you hire it).

You can insure against paying this excess, but the cost can be high when taking out a policy through the car rental agency (typically over £10 a day). Providers like insurance4carhire and questor have excellent deals. Questor says “Buy a daily policy from £2.98 per day or annual from just £43.68.” Insurance4carhire says “For just £4.75 per day, protects you against Excess charges worldwide, whenever and wherever you rent a car and annual European policies cost £49 and Worldwide £65.”

Philip Suter of said” We recently contacted Questor insurance about this issue and they replied.” I can confirm that non-UK residents are eligible to purchase our car hire excess insurance.

Please note that non-UK residents would not be covered to hire in their home country e.g. a resident of France would not be covered for hires in France””.

Philip went on to say “regarding they state in it‘s questions and answers section “Can I purchase your Excess Policies if I am not a resident of the UK? Yes, our Excess policies can be purchased by people resident anywhere in the world”
