Can I hire a car without putting down an excess deposit?


The short answer

Excess and deposit are two seperate things

  • A deposit is compulsory
  • Fully refundable if the vehicle is returned in the same condition
  • Excess protection is optional but it lowers your liability

The long answer


A deposit is compulsory – at Enterprise it’s fixed at £200 for most vehicles. But don’t worry, it is refundable provided the vehicle is returned in the same condition. Excess protection is optional- you can choose to pay it in order to lower the amount of money you could be liable for in the event of accidental damage or theft.
