How to keep your rental cost low. Take out the Excess Claim Insurance  offered during the booking process. Don’t be pressured at into taking out additional insurance offered at the rental desk.   Car hire companies sometimes make more money from selling insurance policies than from car hire.  The roads in Spain are excellent.  Your Excess Claim Insurance will cover the windscreen, the wheels or the underside of the car.

The cost of the Excess Claim Insurance cost is also based on the number of days you are renting the car. It works out a lot cheaper than the insurance offered by the rental companies.  So in short, take out your own Excess Claim Insurance as you book. Say no to the additional insurance offered at the car collection desk.

There is one downside  to taking our your own Excess Claim insurance on top of the basic insurance already included in your car rental. The car rental company will want to block an amount on your credit card. This could range from €800 through to €3500 for the length of your rental. When you hand the car back, it will be automatically be unblocked. It could take up to four days after your rental ends. So keep this amount free on your credit card or take a separate credit card to cover it.

Where do you find the car rental desks?  The car hire agreement policy document will arrive by email seconds after your booking. It wil give you full details of where to find the desk. Some of the bigger car rental company desks are next to the baggage luggage collection area.  Some car lower cost companies will meet clients after the luggage collection area  in Arrivals area. Look out for the representative with a board with your name on.  You may also be asked to meet your courtesy shuttle bus outside the terminal. It’ll whisk you to the depot in minutes. Collect your car and drive out on the right hand side of the road. Minutes later you’ll be out in the warmth, noise and busy traffic of southern Spain heading for your holiday destination.  Thank you very much for booking your car hire with Gomarbella!
