Hi I am looking to hire a car from Malaga airport for 7 days , how much is the fully comprehensive insurance
At STEP3 during the online booking process after choosing your car model, subject to your country of residence you may be offered extra comprehensive insurance with our insurance partner AXA. This is the most comprehensive and cost effective insurance available. However you will also be offered extra insurance at the desk on arrival. To view these options, next to the car photo of your choice is a link entitled IMPORTANT INFORMATION. Click on this and then on INSURANCE and it will display the options of that particular supplier. Try a few different suppliers as they do vary widely. If you purchase our online insurance with AXA, print the policy that will be emailed to you and take it with you. You do not need any other insurance. [link]
Thanks if I take out fully comprehensive insurance do I still have to leave a deposit.
yes, always.But it is normally reduced.
Most Rental Car companies require a Credit Card on arrival. The security deposit is ¨held¨ on the card and not withdrawn, for the duration of the hire and released when the car is returned without any claims or damages. Credit Cards provide a higher level of security for the rental car supplier, as opposed to a Debit Card. Some rental car companies like GOLDCAR will accept a Debit Card but you must have enough ¨credit¨ on the Debit Card to cover the Excess insurance amount. This Excess amount can vary wildly between 300-3000€ in certain countries. The Excess amount will be withdrawn from your debit card when you arrive. GOLDCAR will accept Debit Cards on this basis in :- Cyprus, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, France, Greece (except Rhodes), Malta, Netherlands, Romania & Mexico. In Italy: Olbia & Cagliari. SPAIN Some of the car rental providers in Spain who accept debit cards to hold the security deposit are: AUTOCLICK CENTAURO DRIVALIA GOLDCAR OK Rent a Car PULSAR Car RECORDGO RHODIUM VICTORIA Cars
