Car Clubs are springing up all over the UK and whilst most offer fully comprehensive insurance they also come with an excess of up to £1,000. Car club excess insurance is available to reduce this, but many Car Clubs charge around £14.95 a month or £149* a year for their Excess Insurance and most exclude cover for damage to the windows and tyres.
Car Club members could save £129 a year with ‘Car Club Excess Protection’ from iCarhireinsurance.com. This new policy has been created especially for Car Club members and offers complete peace of mind for just £19.99 a year, when purchased with any iCarhireinsurance annual Car Hire Insurance Product, and all parts of the car are covered.
Compared with Streetcar's annual policy (£149), this is a saving of almost £130. There is still a saving of £89, when the price of iCarhireinsurances’ lowest priced annual car hire policy, the Excess Europe (£39.99), is included.
This policy can be taken abroad and used with any car rental agreement while on holiday or business. You can't do that with any car club product because all you are paying for is use of their vehicle. iCarhire policies gives you the protection and peace of mind knowing you will have nothing to pay for any damage to your car club or rental vehicle.
**Prices on 21st January 2010
*** The iCarhireinsurance.com price of £59.98 is the addition of our Annual Excess Europe Policy (£39.99) with the Car Club Excess Protection Upgrade (£19.99). All taxes included.
Ernesto Suarez, CEO, www.iCarhireinsurance.com, said “Car Clubs can save drivers a lot of money, but many drivers don’t realise they are liable for damage to the car, even if it is not their fault. A small scratch to the roof or a chip to their windscreen and those savings quickly disappear.
“Many of our customers hire cars in the UK and abroad and are also car club members, so it made sense to create an extension that gives them complete peace of mind and saves them money.”
