If hiring a car you may also want to consider taking out excess insurance. Whilst the car hire companies in Italy are excellent, they can often charge their customers a high excess. That means that, in the event of an accident, damage or theft, your car rental company will most likely charge you up to your excess amount to repair or replace the vehicle. As a result, Bookings For You advise their clients to take out excess insurance on their car hire. You can either pay a daily rate or choose an annual policy to cover you on all your yearly car hire rentals (not just your holiday in Italy). You’ll usually find that an annual policy with still costs less than it would cost you to pay the car hire company to waive the excess charges on your Italy holiday rental. Then in the event of accident, theft, broken windows or tyre damage, the car rental company will charge your card, and the insurance company will reimburse you after you’ve made a claim.
