Thanks for that,
The cost of car hire is very low. From 5-10 Euros per day so although I know I'm already covered, the problem for me is the excess charges which can be as much as a thousand Euros. 6 plus 20 Euros per day still offers good value and no need to give them my credit card.

They don't "charge" your card for £1,000 for the excess. They "block" that amount so it can be charged if necessary, and there is no risk of you exceeding your credit limit. For example if your credit limit was £1,500 and they block £1,000 you would only be able to spend £500 during your holiday. There are no transaction costs or currency conversion risks with "blocking" an amount on a card.

They have your credit card details anyway from the hire and the excess (if you buy it.)
