Our $200 Standard Excess can be increased to $300 or $500 which will reduce your premium on our Comprehensive, Multi-Trip and Non-Medical plans.  

You can also remove the Standard Excess on all plans and pay an increased premium.

Rental Vehicle Excess  

You can opt to increase your Rental Vehicle Excess cover up to an additional $6,000 in case of an accident.
