Read the small print regards damage to the car and what the insurance actually covers. It's probably cheap for a reason.

Re: Driving to Italy from Scotland

I didn't bother renting one in the end, I bought one.

In regards to car hire, I buy a car rental excess policy that covers the UK and Europe for a year, only costs around 35.

When you work out some hire companies can add on around 80 or more excess insurance at the desk for a week and I rent around 5 or 6 cars a year, I'm quids in.

Don't need to worry about adding on expensive cover at the desk, just book the cheapest car I can find on a search engine, which usually have high excess/deposits and if there is any damage charged, just claim it back.

Only had to make one claim so far, some tourist didn't understand the Greek give priority to traffic entering a roundabout. (he soon learned)
No trouble with the claim even though the receipt for it was in some ancient Coptic script, paid in less than a week.
