insurance and insurance excess

take cover....!!!


Included in the price of your car hire is Standard Vehicle Insurance.

Standard Vehicle Insurance consists of “Collision Damage Waiver“ (CDW) or “Fully Comprehensive cover" for the hirer and any additional drivers on the rental agreement.

This insurance cover is for damage to the hired vehicle, theft/vandalism of the vehicle and a comprehensive 3rd party cover, but will carry an insurance excess payable in the event of any claim.

The Insurance Excess on buggs cars groups are

  • Small, Small Fun and Compact 1000€
  • Compact Fun, Crossover, Crossover Auto, Estate, SUV and Utility Fun 1200€
  • 7 Seater, Sports Fun and Vans 1400€

It is strongly recommended that you purchase a Buggs Excess Protection option, which reduces or eliminates the excess payable

If you choose the Buggs Excess Protection, payment of the relevant insurance excess, in the event of any damage or insurance claim, will be reduced by 75% to 25% of the excess. The Buggs Excess Protection does not include any damage to glass, wheels and tyres and vehicle undercarriage, for which the customer remains fully responsible and must reimburse Buggs in full

  • 5€ per day

If you have chosen the Buggs Excess Protection Plus, payment of the insurance excess, in the event of any damage or insurance claim, will be waivered in full. The Buggs Excess Protection Plus does not include any damage to glass, wheels and tyres and vehicle undercarriage, for which the customer remains fully responsible and must reimburse Buggs in full.

  • 25€ per day

If you choose not to accept either of the offered Buggs Excess Protection packages, then you will be liable to pay the FULL Insurance excess relating to the vehicle in the event of damage to the vehicle. The payment will be taken from the card provided as guarantee.


Tyre and Glass Protection cover is available and by paying the daily rate. We will reimburse you fully for the cost of the repair or replacement due to accidental damage. You will need to produce valid invoices

  • 5€ per day

If you have a 'Third-Party' Excess waiver Insurance, then you are liable to reimburse Buggs first and then claim back later through your thrid-party insurer.

If you do not have Excess Insurance of any kind, you are taking a huge risk, which could prove to be very expensive...not to be recommended!
