The deals change all the time. The only way to be sure whats best for you is to do test bookings for your dates.

As to your policy, you'll just have to read the small print, we can't tell you what your policy does or does not cover.

use www.autoeurope.com.au (or UK) www.vroomvroom.com and/or www.carrental.com (UK) - they are brokers/consolidators who represent all the major rental companies - you will see especially with autoeurope offering packages which include most insurances and additional drivers in the package deal -

have a great trip

If using thinking a broker (or even a car hire company) such as carrentals.com then put their name in the search box at the top of this page and look at a few reviews first.

I just did this for carrentals and found this thread.


Do the same for others also.

I have never used either of the ones mentioned in post 2 by Vada but it is as well to be careful.

There are lots of threads from people being wise after the event.
