Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@MrEgg sorry you find it confusing. Many things in life are. Maybe take an adult , or someone you trust along to explain it to you in future.

I find nothing confusing. Have you looked into car rental policies? you can purchase identical cover to what hire companies sell at hugely inflated prices.

My own motor insurance policy also covers me for any vehicle I am driving (with permission!). - Which may not be the same for everyone. However, I would still need excess insurance - but I would prefer not to claim on my personal car insurance!

CDW & LDW usually come with the car when hiring from europe providing you are booking via the european website. Hence you find a cheaper price by going to Hertz.com rather than Hertz.co.uk, as the later gives basic cover compared to the former who give no cover.

Gosh that's amazing! 3rd party cover on a large number of the most valuable and costly items to insure (people).

I'm genuinely surprisingly glad that you didn't have to make a claim against that policy.

I'm 100% serious when I say that I think you dodged a bullet there, congratulations on " getting away with one ".

You may well be correct that I've misinterpreted the data, as the original poster who submitted it did, nevertheless, based on the data provided, the companies were ranked in order of satisfactory responses from customers, and is therefore statistically valid.


The J.D. Power North America Rental Car Satisfaction StudySM measures customer satisfaction with the entire airport rental car experience, from reservation to vehicle return.

It DOES state quite clearly how many customers were asked .

How exactly should one interpret a score of 850 out of 1000 ? By their own statistics, however they are interpreted, they show a ranking.

Obviously the industry would pay JD Power to produce such a survey , who else would commission it , the NFL ?

Are you suggesting that regardless of the customer polling, they're basing their results on which company paid them to produce a favourable result?
Presumably there is some follow up to those polled, in order to check the validity of the poll. Seems rather a waste of resources to bother asking the public at all .
This seems to be veering toward Trumpian levels of facts.

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

I'm neither an owner , employee, or operator of such a business , and as such am in no position to answer, nor have any inclination to answer.

What you or I might consider a rip-off is entirely down to personal opinion, and subjective to say the least.

My personal feeling would be that it should be in the range of 10 to 15% of the total cost of the rental for CDW, but that leads on to the actual rental price of the car, which is artificially and historically low. (In my opinion, of course) . Or was .

Oh well prompted by this thread I've just booked a car speculatively for Xmas in the US. No poo-poo the prices are eyewatering by historic standards - about £100 per day with Avis for a basic car thru Priceline (and yes that's with zero excess LDW). Fortunately Sixt seem to be on a bit of a market grab - the downside is limited mileage but the overage rates aren't stupid and come in much better. That delta makes the difference between a holiday or not.

If you're even thinking of the US or Canada I'd say hold a reservation early, you can always cancel if things return to more normal.

Typically you'd look at consumer organisations, for example "Which" in the UK or "Consumer Reports" in the US for this type of information.
They're independent of the industry and represent consumers, not industry.

Your approach is rather like asking the tobacco industry how safe it is to smoke.

You're misusing the data when you imply it represents actual customer satisfaction as some sort of percentage.
Their text explains that the data is used for comparison within the industry; it's not an absolute metric.
You're incorrect in assuming it somehow represents the perspective of consumers.

Statistics do not "lie", but as you've shown they can easily be misunderstood and misused by those who
decide what they want to show first, then look for numbers to back it up.

Eye watering ? I was renting a Ford sapphire for £ 79 a day Inc cdw and unlimited mileage in 1997. Far more in line with where it should be, and in all probability will be until the entire world economy settles down again. Comparable prices for every possible consumer priced item over the same period would show massive increases, except perhaps airline travel, which is in its own little bubble (as distinct from package holidays in general).

Have a good Christmas.

Thanks for the lecture, the data you can't find is clearly indicated in the linked document you're referring to.

The data specifically states that customers were asked how satisfied they were with the entire rental experience, and asked to rank it on a scale.
The comparison is not " is x better than y?" until the responses which were positive (or negative) for both x and y are compared

If the question(s) asked to the consumers do not reflect the perspective of the consumers, then who's perspectives do they reflect , given the people asked the questions?

Your tobacco analogy is poor , for such a talented statistician as yourself.

I've stated my opinion in my previous answer , it's just there above, in the quoted part ^ . I never in any previous post in this thread stated ANYWHERE that I thought it was a great deal.

I did advise that the renter / hirer bought it in order to absolve any liability for the excess. Whether that is from the rental company, or an outside source is for the individual to choose.
That is still my opinion .

My personal experience has been good with car rental comps apart from in Bulgaria. We were hit from behind in Sofia and lost our excess fee which we had to pay up front for even though it wasn't my fault. Then we waited hours to be picked up and taken back to base and given another car. Had a lovely 3hr drive in 1 metre vis in the night after. That was scary as fcuk!

Roguevfr, I don't mind you using my exp as an example and ever since that day I've always taken out cdw. It's not been that expensive and when trying to arrange insurance separately, it was way more expensive for a one off car rental. Never really had a hard sell or anything like that just straight to the point, take it or leave it attitude. I recently booked with sixt too but had to cancel due to covid. No issues there either. I thought 3 days with a mustang inc cdw for $230 was damn good. Shame as I was really looking forward to driving down sunset blvd in a 'stang!

Thanks for your reply, a non critical response is rather refreshing. Your Bulgaria experience may well be "non accident" since its well known that such incidents are staged in certain countries in order to make fraudulent insurance claims.
Rental company branding is often removed from fleet cars for this exact reason to make them less visible. It's not unknown for those involved simply to follow hired cars away from airports though. (Cue the conspiracy theorists)...
Regarding the American hire. My wife's always been keen on Mustangs, and we've driven several older models through Death Valley, Pacific Coast road.
Can't say I'm a fan . I think they're far more iconic than actual fun to drive. I've much preferred both the Camaro, and the Dodge Challenger to the mustangs I've driven, but neither of those are a patch on a decent European car, although they do sound good.

I always used to self insure on car rentals and decline the CDW. Four years ago my work started to offer a very well priced travel insurance package, which was perfect and very cheap for ski holidays - and as a bonus also had excess cover insurance - something I’d first been tipped off on here, but found I never quite got around to sorting out.

That year was also the first time I had a prang, aquaplaning into the back of someone at traffic lights in Mexico - v low speed, but managed to peel off the front wing. I was in the hole for $800 , but the insurance proved itself, and all was covered painlessly

So a very happy experience ... until I can to do my next years personal car insurance renewal, and realised I had to declare it. Cue elevated premiums for the next five years (and yes I do religiously shop for the best deal each year). I think the increased cost from that will way offset any savings a excess insurance policy will give over a CDW

Obviously your mileage may vary (sorry ...) depending on the state of your no claims etc ...

I've had different experiences with the same rental company at different locations. Avis at Zurich Airport were good. Avis at GVA much less. One time (Swiss side, so had winter tires and chains in the boot) in April they were hell bent on selling us chains. It hadn't snowed for more than a week and it was quite warm but tried quite at length to convice me we won't make it to the resort without chains (police won't let you). Other time tried to get us a Golf instead of a Passat. The worst was when we left the car undamaged at the drop off at night. The next day I received a demand of payment for a very nasty scrape on the side and the back wheel. I have Avis Preferred and I also had a no excess insurance (included wheels, paid extra). I also had taken pictures of the car when I left. It took a few emails but in the end their lawyers (or claims adjustors) sent a letter telling me that I owed nothing. Best guess their driver did it and tried to getout of it. Still bothered me that the "bullet proof" insurance wasn't quite all that. Munich Airport is quite erratic for both Avis and Europcar. It really depends on the person on duty. I've had good service, but also bad. On pick up once they tried to get me to agree to a Berlingo (ordered a Superb) and once they tried to convince me to drive off with a cracked windscreen (that wasn't even marked on their form). Another time at drop off the guy made a fuss about an almost invisible pebble damage. He backed off when I started taking photos. At Munich the drop off is the same for all companies, so maybe it was just one guy that was ober zealous or out to make a quota

I see that's your point , yes.
I also see in both yours, and the richb67 posts comments on a company I don't rate, and which was going through financial ruin, both the need to prioritise something else other than 3rd party insurance paperwork and the need to maximise income.
I'm fairly sure the cost of the tyre fitted wasn't considerably different from the invoiced amount , but and you're hanging all your beliefs in that.
The reason for the amounts refunded in the article, and the causes for the end result are pure speculation, and only after considerable hassle the man had to suffer , as i think I'd mentioned was possible before.

Sad but useful to hear that the "membership" thing doesn't hold any real value in terms of rental cost.

I've rented in Sicily. I got upgraded to a "fat" Fiat 500, which was about 1cm narrower than the medieval route through Ragusa.
I think the standard car would have been easier. The narrowest bit is on an angle and was very well scarred with paint from cars driven
by less careful people. It was close to midnight and no traffic, but that section was exceptionally tight. it's easy to avoid, but the best
hotel is on that route, and the Michelin starred restaurant (same ownership) is close by.
