We believe that having travel insurance is important and prudent. Numerous credit cards offer travel insurance benefits, one of which includes excess coverage for rental cars. This feature can potentially lower or completely waive the expenses you might incur in case of rental car damage when you use the card for payment of your trip and as a guarantee for the car excess.

Comprehensive car insurance, a legal requirement, is always included in the rental package. This insurance provides coverage for damages to both your rental vehicle and any other parties involved. However, should you need to make a claim, the initial portion of the claim will be deducted from your excess deductible or deposit, which can vary depending on the type of car you rent. The remaining balance will be covered by the insurance company. For more detailed information, please consult the booking terms and conditions. ⚠️ Upon car delivery, it is necessary to place a security deposit for potential car excess charges on the driver's credit card. Many credit cards include travel insurance as a benefit, one specific feature is excess coverage for car rentals, which can reduce or even eliminate the amount you would need to pay in the event of damage to a rental car when using the card for payment of your trip and as a guarantee for the car excess.
