What happens if I am offered extra insurance at the desk?
Car hire firms make very little money on the car rental itself - and extras such as excess insurance, extended breakdown insurance and tyres, wheels and glass cover are all options many companies will offer you to both better protect you and increase their return on your rental deal.
A unique feature of Clarify is that we will explain to you beforehand the insurance likely to be offered at the desk so you can make a decision as to whether you would like to buy it at your leisure. We will advise the rental firm to add any insurance chosen when you reach the desk, so you do not have to try and access what you want at that time.
If however you decide to take additional excess insurance through Clarity Car Hire this will not be connected in any way to the car hire supplier. It is an independent product that will reimburse you should you be charged for a payment of the excess for theft or damage, or damage to the tyres wheels, glass, underbody and roof (up to specified policy limits).
If you have already purchased independent excess insurance before your trip, you can turn down the excess insurance offered by the supplier upon collection.
