One of our client’s most frequently asked questions is how they can rent a car in Ibiza with no excess. Usually, car rentals in Ibiza fix different excess amounts in case of damage occurred during the rental, which will be higher or lower depending on the value of the car. If you don’t wish to take the risk, keep reading our article and learn how to avoid paying an excess during your holiday in Ibiza.
How to remove the excess from your rental car in Ibiza
When you rent a car at Moto Luis, the rental always includes insurance to cover potential damage to third parties and/or occupants. Just as with other car rental companies, this insurance includes and excess which, at Moto Luis, is between 180 and 2,000 euros, depending on the selected model. The excess will be charged when you pick-up the vehicle and refunded within 48 hours of the end of the rental after we have checked there is no new damage to the vehicle. To avoid this charge, Moto Luis offers their clients a SFW full insurance, at a very appealing price that varies depending on the rented category.
Our SFW full insurance
The majority of car rental companies have very complex insurance policies which make your booking very complicated as they might offer up to 4 different insurance options. If you are looking for a car rental company that offers the possibility of zero excess so you can relax during your holiday and not think about potential damage caused by third parties, at Moto Luis we will make it very easy for you with a single full insurance option: the super SFW full insurance. With this new insurance option we have extended the cover to include damage to the wheels/rims/tyres (other companies don’t offer cover for this), windows, 24 hour road assistance, locks and paintwork. If you prefer to take basic insurance, the excess will be applied to your contract and it will be returned to you at the end of the rental.
What is the difference between basic third party insurance with an excess and the SFW insurance?
If you choose to rent with an excess and either you or someone else damages the vehicle without their insurance covering the cost, you will be responsible of the costs to repair the vehicle with the limit of the excess value. If on the other hand you prefer to go for the SFW full insurance, you won’t have to pay anything for the damage that might happen to the car. The SFW insurance does not cover the loss of keys nor damage that occurs under the influence of drugs or alcohol or due to reckless driving.
What is the cost to rent a car in Ibiza without an excess and with SFW full insurance?
Costs begin at just 12 euros per day for small cars in categories A and B. You can check the cost of the SFW full insurance for any car rental on our website, or even during the booking process, so you will always know the full cost of your rental car in Ibiza and you will be able to make the most of your holiday without worries. Please note that even when you book this option, when you pick up your car we will ask you to provide a credit card number in case you do not return the tank full of fuel or in case there are any other extras, such as extending the contract to keep the car for longer.
