PRLog - Jul. 27, 2012 - PRINCES RISBOROUGH, U.K. -- As the cost of owning and maintaining a car (or a second car) for people living in cities these days the popularity of “Car Clubs” has come about. Cars (and vans) can be picked up in certain locations, close to a consumer’s home and dropped off at another location to fit in with his or her requirements. Arrangements are made online and the customer has to join a car club.
Car Club Excess Insurance
A resident need only use a car whenever they are actually going somewhere, it could be for doing the local supermarket shop, visiting family or venturing outside the city for the day. There are no maintenance, long term parking, depreciation and road tax costs and thousands of pounds can be saved a year.
Many of these car clubs also hire vans which makes a lot of sense if someone needs to buy an item of furniture from a retailer and transport it home, or move flat or house.
Costs for hiring a car start from around £5 per hour in the UK and the car club principle is now something that consumers will find worldwide. Many vehicles are echo friendly to cut down pollution in city areas.
It also makes a lot of economic sense to take out an annual car hire excess insurance policy to cover the excess insurance on the vehicle that is being rented.
Four of the car hire excess insurance companies advertising on the insurance4carrental.com website are offering this facility. Questor Insurance, Worldwideinsure, iCarhireinsure and insurance4carhire. Some of the companies only cover the UK market, others a much wider market.

Another provider’s product being advertised is tempcover.com who offer similar insurance products.
