What is Self Drive Hire Insurance?

Self-drive hire insurance is a specialised type of insurance coverage designed for businesses that rent out vehicles to customers on a self-drive basis. In other words, when customers rent a vehicle and drive it themselves, they need insurance coverage that protects both the rental company and the renter in case of accidents, damages, and other unforeseen events.

So now you’re probably wondering how we can actually help you. Well thanks to work we do with our insurers, our self drive hire policies can offer your business the following:

  • Cover for fleet of vehicles for both on and off hire
  • Competitive premiums with payment plans available
  • Claims focus and cost control management – we’ll lead the insurer on what you need
  • Help and advice for your business when required
  • Cover that includes European motor breakdown cover
  • Simple administration procedures
  • Additional covers available for complete business protection

As well as all that, our clients benefit from our personal attention and decades of experience working in the rental industry, as well as a focus on supporting clients with claims.
