LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - Car club users can already save hundreds of pounds thanks to the car hire excess insurance policies offered by icarhireinsurance.com, but they can now save even more.

To highlight the huge margins car club providers are making on the excess policies they offer consumers, iCarhireinsurance.com has reduced its prices even further. Consumers can now purchase Car Club excess insurance for only Pounds Sterling 39.99 a year from iCarhireinsurance.com, all parts of the car are covered and the excess is reduced to zero.

Streetcar charge Pounds Sterling 179 a year and damage to the windows and tyres is not covered. Streetcar customers can therefore save Pounds Sterling 139 if they buy from icarhireinsurance.com, more than 75%, and those aged between 21 and 25 can save even more.

ZipCar and CityCar both charge more than Pounds Sterling 39.99 for their annual cover, and neither reduce the excess to zero or cover damage to the windows and tyres.

Ernesto Suarez, CEO, www.iCarhireinsurance.com, said "Car Clubs are a fantastic idea but with no one to check the car in and out, your risk of damage during your booking isn't limited to whilst you are driving. With excesses of around Pounds Sterling 1000, how do you prove that damage was done before you picked it up or after it was dropped off?

"iCarhireinsurance.com' excess policies are 75% cheaper than the leading provider, cover damage to the whole of the car and reduce the excess to zero. With our policies you can be safe in the knowledge that you have saved money and are completely covered."
