Help off-set your Carbon Footprint by donating £2 towards Planting a Tree


Fully comprehensive insurance is included within the hire charge and arranged for you with a trusted third party insurer.

Insurance excess is an amount payable by the hirer for each event of damage or theft claimed on the vehicle, or any third party claim made against Abacus.

The insurance excess can be reduced, but not entirely removed, by selecting to pay Damage Limitation Waiver (DLW).

The insurance excess and DLW charges differ per vehicle and can also be increased at the discretion of Abacus staff.

The following are not covered by our Insurance and are chargeable on a case by case basis so the insurance excess and DLW will not apply:

  • Damage or repairs deemed as a result of abnormal, deliberate or negligent acts
  • Lost or broken keys
  • Damage to windscreens and glass
  • Punctures or blowouts
  • Damage above windscreen height

Failure to abide by the terms and conditions of each hire may revoke the insurance cover and thus make the hirer fully liable. Full Terms and Conditions are available by clicking here, at the Company Offices and incorporated within the Rental Agreement.
