To be honest, I cannot remember. But I can remember that the whole package was highly competitive and the service was better than anything I have encountered anywhere else in the World

I'm just back from a 15 day hire and the cost of the extra insurance for that period was £35.65.

I can't remember, just that it was a bit off putting to have to make choices quickly while standing at the desk. It is essentially excess insurance to cover things like wing mirrors, roof, trim, tyres etc that are excluded from the mandatory insurance.If you do have an accident it's highly likely that something on the excess list will be affected and the best way to avoid this cost is to take out your own car hire excess policy before travelling. This works out much cheaper and you can comfortably say no to any extra package offered when you turn up at the airport. Nearly all car hire companies do the same thing and in every other sense this is a good hire company.

Don't buy the car hire 'extra' insurance from the Car Hire Company, whoever they are. They are all too expensive. Simply buy the excess cover from one of the many UK insurance providers before you go for a fraction of the cost. Just search car hire excess and you can then compare options and prices. Take your policy certificate with you to show your car hire company if required.

Did not take extra insurance. We had taken out Car Hire Excess Insurance Policy before travelling for €47.18 in total. This was done through mondial-assistance which is underwritten by Allianz. The rental was very competitive and have no problem with recommending Drivalia

I don't know because I have a policy with Insurance4carhire which covers all my car hiring for 12 months. Worth buying.

I cant quite remember, but the pricing is on their website. and also, you can write an email and ask them. they were not pushy about selling us additional insurance like we have experienced from the other car rentals there, it was fast, clean, convenient, friendly, and good price. I will not rent from anyone else again in Alicante!

If you intend hiring cars abroad for more that one week in any year then buy an annual policy before you go for about £40.00 subject to conditions. I had annual insurance when I hired from Drivalia and they did not pressure me to take their insurance in any way, very unusual! I could not fault them in any way.
