-- Auto Europe believes in protecting their clients from making costly mistakes. When customers hire a car, they are faced with the decision of whether to purchase supplemental insurance or not. Most clients are unaware of how to proceed in this situation. They are unsure if their current automotive insurance provides ample coverage to protect their rental. The Huffington Post recently released an article
that gives an overview on rental insurance.
"There are plenty of options to get the best coverage when renting a vehicle," says an Auto Europe representative. "Clients should always consider their options when purchasing rental insurance. It can save them a lot of money in the long run."
Anyone who is about to hire a car must first consider his or her own insurance. If they are the current owner of a vehicle, it is possible - though not likely - that they are already covered by their personal insurance. Before hiring a car, it may be worth it to contact their insurance provider and ask the appropriate questions.
There are a few services available when hiring a car through Auto Europe. Zero Excess covers the excess of both collision and theft insurance, which allows renters to have peace of mind as they enjoy their rented car. Usually, anyone driving a hired car would be responsible for most of the damage if there was an accident while they were driving. With Zero Excess, however, Auto Europe will help their customers largely avoid excess amounts.
Besides Zero Excess, Auto Europe also offers an Excess Refund package. Should a driver covered with Excess Refund get into an accident, he or she can claim from Auto Europe the reimbursement of the excess amount paid to the supplier for accidental damage. When available, Zero Excess is normally included in the basic price of the car, whereas clients are given the option to add Excess Refund to their order when booking online.
Besides these, clients can also acquire extra insurance locally when picking up the car, either to reduce the excess amount or to cover elements of the vehicle not included in the basic insurance. Other options include Personal Accident Insurance, which will help drivers and passengers cover their medical costs, and Personal Effects Coverage, which will cover the cost of items should they be stolen from the vehicle. If Personal Effects Coverage is purchased, it is strongly recommended that all items are documents with photos and receipts to make the process quicker and easier. As mentioned above, for these insurance options, renters would have to add the service at a local office. In most situations, any insurance offered locally is optional and clients can refuse to take it if they consider it unnecessary for their own peace of mind.
