I am looking to hire a car next June with little or no excess cost
Please use the website, you can obtain a quotation there and make a reservation. As for excess, you have the option to take the zero excess with our partner AXA during the online booking process. This will cover any excess up to €3,000
But is there then an extra cost then when we arrive as this happened to us last year when we taught there was no excess we where still been asked for big money to be held on card.
Insurance Excess and Security Deposit are not strictly connected.
You can remove or reduce your excess for your insurance liability during the online booking process with our insurance partner AXA. This is likely the most comprehensive and cost effective insurance available.
However you will be offered extra insurance at the desk on arrival. To view these options, next to the car photo is a link entitled IMPORTANT INFORMATION Click on this and then on INSURANCE and it will display the options of that particular supplier. Try a few different suppliers as they do vary widely.
A SECURITY DEPOSIT: is held on your credit card during the rental period.
Again clicking on the same link IMPORTANT INFORMATION will reveal what the Security Deposit will be for each supplier.
