Product Guides

With a number of comprehensive benefits, as well as optional extras to extend the scope of your policy, Questor Insurance aims to anticipate and meet a wide variety of driver needs to ensure that you get the best from your car hire excess insurance cover.

Truly international and now Year-Round Appeal

Two aspects of a car hire insurance policy which are likely to be of interest to a vast number of people include a Near Home Rental option and a Home Country option. Both features offer great flexibility to drivers who wish to rent a vehicle near their UK home address (in addition to their rentals abroad). However, whereas many car hire insurance policies would require both such options to be added as additional extras, Questor offers both as standard under their policy. But how exactly do both of these features work?

Near Home Rental and Home Country options

Near Home Rental is a unique option that Questor Insurance is proud to include as standard. In doing so, it means that rentals involving car clubs and other nearby car rentals close to home are automatically covered. It is also worth noting that the Questor Car Hire Excess Insurance policy covers clients on a worldwide basis. This is regardless of where you live and includes rentals within your home country.

European Policy

The European Cover option includes payment of the excess on the rental agreement for up to £10,000. It is also worth noting the specific countries within the European continent that you are covered under the policy. These include: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. As well as countries to the west of the Ural Mountains, including, islands in the Mediterranean, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Canary Islands, Madeira, and the Azores.

Worldwide Policy

The Worldwide cover option also includes payment of the excess on the rental agreement for up to £10,000. There is also an optional extra of cover for the full Collision Damage Waiver. This increases the level of cover to £75,000 to cover the full value of the hire vehicle. Find out more about our Worldwide Car Hire Excess insurance policy.


You will be covered if you need to cancel the car rental agreement on the advice of a Medical Practitioner and you can prove that you were, in fact, confined to a bed within a hospital, private accommodation or hotel during the rental period. If you wish to claim under these circumstances you will be asked to present the rental agreement documents and a medical certificate relating to the period when you were confined to your bed.
