Always get a signed copy of any policy documents the insurer may hold. This will help you build a strong case in the event that something goes wrong.
If you believe that the insurer holds incorrect policy documents (or that there has been another issue with documentation), you should complain to the insurer directly.You should know
Car rental companies have to give clear terms and conditions, transparent pricing info, and a full explanation of their liability and waiver cover. In fact, all charges should be made clear to you upfront.
You should always take a full inventory and get the car hire company to sign off on everything – even if the company tells you it isn’t necessary.
If you decide to take out extra cover, it’s best to make sure that the cover is in the same name as the lead driver. This could avoid a number of potential pitfalls in the future.
Car hire companies should invoice you for any charges incurred. In some cases, they may debit money directly from your account – they should make efforts to notify you beforehand.
If you do have to dispute a charge, you should always try to do it within 14 days.
