Hotwire Car Rental (Damage Insurance) - Hotwire Offered Car Damage Coverage That Is Invalid in UK
Allianz, Global Assistance, Waterloo, CA - Complaint
FREDERICTON, NB, CANADA -- On a holiday trip to England I rented a car from Alamo Inc, from May 7 to May 25 offer by Hotwire. (A very nice car, perfect for our needs) In addition, Hotwire offered Rental Car Damage Coverage through an insurance company - Allianz, Global Assistance in Waterloo Ontario Canada at a cost of $284.81 which was paid in advance in full.
When I presented the policy to the Alamo desk at Heathrow London I was informed that the insurance coverage was not acceptable. And, that Alamo Inc had repeatedly warned Hotwire of this situation. I was required to purchase new insurance. CAUTION! Do not purchase Rental Car Damage Coverage except from the renting auto company at the pick-up location.
