This article is very helpful, however, none of the car hire excess insurance sites seemed to cater to expatriates returning for a visit to the UK.
My family and I live abroad and are therefore not UK-resident, and have just arrived back for a two month visit. I want to hire a car here and still have my valid UK licence, but can't seem to find this kind of insurance to help me.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I read Martin's article about getting hire car excess insurance however is this required in America? I was told on the phone that it is not required as the law states there is no excess and a huge level of cover for everyone...any help would be appreciated

Apologies if this has already been discussed.
I have AVIS car hire booked in the US as part of a British Airways package and I wonder if anyone can please advise whether I'll need any additional insurance in relation to the car?
These are included:
Dy Customer Fac Charge
Veh. License Fee
Fuel Policy Is Full To Full
Domestic Security Fee
Third Party Liability (TPL)
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)

but has anyone got any feedback on such deals?

If you mean Goldcar, feedback is extensive, as a quick search of this board would reveal, including the twenty pages of this one:

no I wasn't particularly referring to goldcar as there were half a dozen companies offering similarly super cheap deals of a few pounds per day ... so I was asking for feedback as to whether these deals are geniuine or just a scam to get you through the door before ramping up the real costs?
But yes - the thread you link to is pretty damning and a good indicator to steer clear of all such deals. Thanks

If you are going to do it, book direct, as opposed to via a broker, in so that you have one clear set of T&Cs.
