iCarhireinsurance.com Launches New Car Club Excess Protection

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2010) -

  • £99 cheaper than the policy offered by Streetcar 
  • Reduces excess to nil
  • Complete peace of mind - with cover included for windows and tyres

Car club members are liable for an excess of up to £1000 if they damage a car, even if it's not their fault. Excess insurance is available directly from car club providers, however none of the leading three providers include cover for damage to windows or tyres, and only Streetcar reduces the excess to nil, however they charge £149 a year.

iCarhireinsurance.com has launched a new 'Car Club Excess Protection' policy that costs only £49.99 a year, reduces the excess to nil, and all parts of the car are covered, including the windows and tyres.

iCarhireinsurance.com's policy has been created especially for Car Club members and offers complete piece of mind. It used to only be available as an add-on to its Annual European Car Hire Excess policy, but is now available as a stand alone product. Customers that do want both European car hire and Car Club excess insurance, can still buy the bundled product for £79.99. With European car hire excess cover starting at £39.99, this is a saving of £10.

Ernesto Suarez, CEO, https://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. With iCarhireinsurance.com customers can save money and have complete peace of mind."
