Been looking into 5 days car hire in Scotland at the end of the month and the insurance excess issue is a nightmare. Hertz are circa £500 or Supercover for circa £14 per day and that raises the hire by a huge amount compared to the basic hire.
With Car Hire 3000 I note that they have the option of £2.95 Damage Excess Fund at checkout and would just like to confirm if anyone knows if this is basic insurance to pay any additional excess payments such as the £500 referred to above? Adds £14.75 to the hire cost rather than whatever the Supercover costs if I am reading correctly and would appear to be a no brainer!!.
Thanks in advance for any response.

I only use hire cars very infrequently and therefore the value for money on an annual policy is not there for me. If I can get the daily cover for £2.95 from HC 3000 rather than £4.50 from the insurance company you recommended then that works out better for me. I have noted some other insurance companies also provide this at a lower cost so will also look at them.

From the original article:Can you turn right on a red?Many countries allow you to turn right at traffic lights on red provided there's no oncoming traffic (this is in right hand drive countries) . If you don't do this, you may get abuse from other drivers. So check with the car hire company what the local laws are first
Wouldn't that be turn left?
Turning right would be for left hand drive cars.
I'm not a driver, but it seems a bit strange; as turning right could entail crossing traffic with right of way. Turning left would entail a possible merging. Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.
