    Third party car excess insurance - CDW v excess? 7th Jul 17 at 6:50 PM
    I used the MSE comparison site listed on their page to get a quote for our trip to Portugal.

    I note that some quotes cover "European Excess" and others cover "European Excess and CDW Insurance"

    I'm a bit confused by this. As I thought any rental has insurance and you pay the excess in case of an issue - the CDW insurance being the extra you pay to reduce your excess. I likely have it wrong - but not sure how this applies to third-party excess insurers.
