Customers Reviews

I wholeheartedly recommend CarInsuRent. Their response time was exceptionally prompt. They requested standard documentation and photos of the damage, and I received payment directly to my PayPal account almost immediately.

I am a new customer and they handled my claim with no issues for the full amount I was charged. All by email. They even took action against the hire car company in Heathrow who were overcharging me for something really minor! Thanks for your support.

Got an insurance for rental car in Iceland, while on the trip I had a tire damage that was not covered by the car rental company.
Emailed a claim to CarInsuRent and got the payment fully covered without any problem.
Make sure you take photos of everything before and after.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can I buy a plan when I pick up my rental car?

No. You should purchase a policy before starting your travel.

Can I buy a plan for part of my rental only?

No. We provide a single journey plan. You are covered from the time you pick up the rental car up to the time you return it or on the last date written on your Certificate of Insurance, whichever comes first.

Can I cancel my policy before my trip?

You can cancel your policy within 14 days of receiving your PDS and Certificate of Insurance. The premium you have paid will be refunded to you in full, as long as you have not started your trip and do not want to file a claim of any sort related to the policy. Once this 14-day period has passed, you can still cancel your policy but you will not receive any refund.
