March 2008

Huma Qureshi who is a personal finance and property writer for The Observer and who recently won the most promising newcomer award from the British Insurance Broker's Association wrote an article in The Observer on Sunday 9th March.

The article was entitled "An answer to the excesses of car hire firms" wrote that Insurance4carhire.com, a specialist insurer, says there has been a significant increase in the number of over-75s hiring cars abroad. 'With 75 being the new 65, growing numbers of older travellers are determined to continue driving as part of their holiday,' says Larry Ursich, a spokesman for the online insurer. 'But senior citizens are often on a restricted bud When you hire a car in the UK or Europe, the quoted price will include fully comprehensive insurance for any named drivers. When you pick up the car, you can be charged extra for voluntary protection to reduce the excess payable in the event of a collision. For overseas rentals, that excess charge is much higher - it can be as much as 1,000, compared with around 500 on rentals in the UK.

Larry Ursich who established insurance4carhire.com in 2002 went on to say "'Drivers can be liable for as much as 1,000 should the car suffer any kind of damage or be stolen"

The article went onto advise that" When The Observer called Avis to hire a car for five days in Bordeaux, we were offered a Renault Clio for 192.84 with unlimited mileage and a 750 excess. Avis's voluntary excess cover was around 10 (12.50) a day (an extra 50) - more than double the daily charge from Insurance4carhire" In December 2007 Insurance4carhire was acquired by the Towergate Partnership, the largest independently owned insurance intermediary in Europe. Insurance4carhire.com is a trading name of Towergate Underwriting Group Ltd which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
