Re: car hire insurance Updated

I quickly took out a policy with Questor Insurance Services Ltd, at Rainham, Kent, UK.
+1 for Quester. I've been using them for years. I usually have annual world wide cover.

So far no accidents but they were very responsive when I once had a puncture. Luckily the rental company never billed me for that so there was nothing to claim from them.

I rented in Italy before as well (in Sicily) and the sales people there were very pushy with their aggressive sales tactics where they try and scare you into getting cover with them. You need to be prepared and refuse it even when they tell you that they will take the maximum excess amount (around €1000.-) from you and then you have to claim back from your insurance.

At the time they also tried to sell road side assistance cover which I was surprised they didn't have, they also tried to scare me into it by saying that if you have a problem there is a €200.- call out fee or something. I just refused it on principle! I also have intertours road assisstance cover which I am not sure covers me in hire cars but they do come out if I am driver or a passenger of other cars. So I would at least have tried that first.
