    When booking any car on the Auto Europe car rental portal you can rest assured that the basic required insurance, including Liability insurance with a minimum coverage called “Collision Damage Waiver” (CDW), Fire insurance, Third Party Liability Insurance and Theft Protection (TP), are guaranteed. Coverage for rental cars is possible through an excess, which is a maximum sum of money that clients have to pay in the above mentioned cases. The excess can vary from rental companies and also car type. At Hertz London the CDW and TP excess is respectively approx. GBP 1,000.00 (VAT included). You can find this information under “Info Icon” on the booking engine when making a reservation or by checking the “Terms and Conditions” after the booking process is complete.

    Since the CDW does not cover damages to glass, tyres, underside, exterior mirrors, interior, roof, engine, damaged locks and key loss, we advise our customers to choose our Auto Europe Full Protection Package. This option covers all the latter elements and functions according to the “refundable excess formula”: for a convenient amount of money clients can get back the excess they had to pay locally.

    If you pick up your car at Hertz London with a basic car rental package by Auto Europe, you can consider purchasing additional insurance cover locally.
