    Expedia car hire zero excess CDW - do I still need extra insurance? 14th Sep 17 at 10:23 AM
    Just that really: I've booked a couple of car hires through Expedia for the USA recently and both state that the CDW has a zero excess. Therefore is it still worth getting car hire excess insurance? I know CDW doesn't cover certain things (damage to tyres, towing etc) so I''m assuming it's still worth getting the insurance to cover these things?

    Is that correct?

    If booked via Expedia UK, it's not mandatory, but I take the "belt and braces" approach as I travel a fair bit.
    You will have the minimum allowed public liability insurance applied

    I have an annual policy that covers CDW(up to US$100,000), Super CDW(up to £6,000), SLI(up to US$1,000,000) and a fair bit more.
