How does this insurance work?
So, for example, you hire a motorhome and the vehicle comes with its standard insurance, known as CDW (collision damage waiver). In most cases, when the hire motorhome is stolen or damaged you’ll be liable to pay an excess amount before the rental company covers the rest of the cost. This means if you don’t have an excess insurance in place, you could be liable to pay hundreds, maybe even thousands, if your hire van is stolen or incurs any damage.
Questor Insurance will cover you up to £2,500 (but please note there is a £350 excess on any claim under the excess reimbursement section of our policy) for any physical loss or damage so if you were to have an accident, the rental company may charge you for that damage. For example, you have to pay £500, you would then claim that back for reimbursement through us, using our simple online claim form.
