Imagine my situation. I’ve been stuck on the M25 for more than hour. Traffic is moving at a pace akin to Michael Rasmussen’s current attempt at the Tour de France. I’m going nowhere. We finally pass the accident that happened on the otherside of the motorway and those people who had brought traffic to a near halt finally decide to focus on their driving. Things start to move. Freedom! I finally hit 5th gear but then it strikes. A stone flicks up off the motorway and chips the windscreen of my rental car. It is no fault of my own but I know that I’m going to have to pay the cost of replacing it. Ennuyeux!
Unfortunately this situation can happen but to help you make sure that this doesn’t hit you too hard on your wallet we’ve launched our Windscreen Protection product in the UK. This product essentially removes all liability for damage to your windscreen on your UK rental and costs £1 per day, up to a maximum of £7. It is not available to pre-book but you can ask for it when you collect car. Unfortunately we are yet to find a solution to the M25!
