On this page we bring together additional car hire services that you may find useful. We have conducted our own research and chosen a company to work with based on what we know of their customer service and finished product. Our focus for the research was on ensuring service levels consistent with our own, and helping to signpost the good companies to our customers.

Top Up Car Insurance
Our Fully inclusive and Premium packages include everything required to drive legally in the USA. Also, basic mechanical assistance if the car breaks down. But, some things are not covered and these fall under the description of ‘Human Error’. As an example, these include
- punctures, or damage to:
- windscreens from road chips
- wheels or tyres from curbs
- the inside of the car from spilt drinks or similar
- lost keys or roadside assistance if you lock yourself out of the car
- putting the wrong fuel in the car
An excess applies to hire cars in Canada – usually between $500 CAD and $800 CAD. This product refunds you in the event that of a charge to the excess by your supplier.
Please see This article for what is, and is not included, with the pre-paid voucher.
