Car hire excess insurance in Seaside

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Seaside car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Seaside.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Seaside car rental.

10.0 ExcellentAug 24 2019
Pros: Everything was excellent, from booking the car online to the locations and staff, the vehicle too.Cons: Can’t think of anything.
10.0 ExcellentAug 12 2019
Cons: Nothing. Time spent getting my vehicle, and returning my vehicle, was much less than any other rental car company. I will be choosing Alamo for my rental car needs.
10.0 ExcellentJan 16 2019
Pros: Estoy muy contento con su atención al alquilar el carro
2.0 MediocreDec 30 2018
Cons: They rented out my car before I arrived. I never got a car.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 25 2017
Convenient, affordable, reliable ski trip SUVPros: Able to reserve the all-wheel drive, large-size SUV the day before I needed it and at a very good rate on kayak.com, far less than I expect to pay (40% less than several direct car rental websites). Vehicle was in excellent condition with only 8,000 miles on it. Ran beautifully from Monterey to Tahoe and back through some pretty rough storm conditions. Easy pick-up and return at the Monterey Regional Airport.Cons: There was nothing I didn't like about the rental car or the company, or the process of getting it online through kayak.com.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 13 2017
Great!Pros: Great price, great car, great experience.Cons: Nothing, all good!
4.8 OkayFeb 3 2017
Flat tire and no helpPros: The car was okCons: Car got a nail in the tire. When I called Alamo, they said they would charge us $65 to change the tire for the spare. Ok, fine. But they didn't have any replacement cars for us. So they wanted us to drive to a firestone, buy a new tire, and then hope to get reimbursed for it. We were on a work trip and a schedule. It was completely ridiculous and unhelpful. I couldn't believe that Alamo and Enterprise didn't have a single car to use for one day! Ended up getting the spare on ourselves. Driving it very slowly to our drop off place 40 min away and just leaving,
10.0 ExcellentDec 11 2016

10.0 ExcellentMay 24 2021
Pros: I went through Kayak and ended with Priceline I wanted to change my itinerary and called Priceline who asked me to call Kayak that has no phone connection.Cons: Book directly through Budget
10.0 ExcellentMay 18 2021
Pros: Easy process and great staff
6.0 GoodApr 10 2021
Pros: No, I tried to call their office various times the day before, and they put me on hold for a long time twice, then just hung up the 3rd try. After that it just went to corporate.Cons: The young man I encountered upon arrival was very brusque. Whipped thru the paperwork, and when I asked to confirm the quoted price, he said a price of $40 more. I asked why and he said it was because I was picking it up early (less than an hour difference, the flight was a bit early). He re-did it all to reflect the price I was quoted. Never had anything like that happen before.
2.0 MediocreMar 19 2021
Pros: Nothing! Didn’t even rent the vehicle!Cons: No where in the rental agreement did it say there would be a rental car deposit?!! Therefore I was not prepared with a credit card that could hold that amount of money!! Very disappointed!!
10.0 ExcellentNov 12 2020

10.0 ExcellentMay 2 2021
Pros: Yes
2.0 MediocreDec 7 2020
Cons: Rental was for 08:00 am, but the car was not ready until 09:00. Was told they do not have the staff and he could not tell me when the car would be ready. Once the car was delivered, still had trash in the back from prior rental.
8.0 ExcellentOct 13 2020
Pros: The staff was great, the service was excellent - easy pick up and drop-off (and the woman staffing the desk remembered me three days later!). I found the entire experience to be easy and understandable (where to go, what to do, etc.) from beginning to end.Cons: The car wasn't all that great. It was safe, it was functional, and it was most definitely clean. However, I would have preferred something a little more comfortable and modern, even at my small-car/low-level need.
9.2 ExcellentSep 9 2020
Pros: easy pick-up and drop-offCons: cost was a bit high for the duration and distance I drove
10.0 ExcellentAug 10 2020
Pros: Yes very friendly and helpful.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2020
Pros: NothingCons: I could have got my rental without having to cancel because they wanted to start switching people over to credit card when I already payed in advance then let me know I can’t have my debit card on file even though it was prepaid also I didn’t like that I was taunted for not having a credit card
10.0 ExcellentOct 8 2019
Pros: All good !!!!
2.0 MediocreAug 17 2019
Cons: My flight was delayed and when I got to Monterey they were closed. They closed at 7:00 pm. Then the next morning they didn’t have the car. I would not suggest renting from a place not at the airport.
8.8 ExcellentJul 22 2019
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful.Cons: I would truly appreciate if I could drop the car at my address within 5 miles of Monterey Airport.

3.6 MediocreAug 30 2019
Pros: I rented an “Expedition or similar “. They delivered an Explorer and charged extra for the bigger car.
2.0 MediocreJul 23 2019
Pros: When I called Enterprise no car was available and I was put on waiting list. I live in a tourist area and you might have thought a car was avail. but on busy weekend that wasn't so. Very disappointing! Rent from them frequently by directly phoning no problem. Won't bother using Kayak in future.Cons: That you actually check to see if car avail. by phone or other than electronic.

2.0 MediocreJan 3 2017
Cons: Unfortunately I reserved an SUV and upon arrival to the check-in desk I was told they had only sedans. It was lucky that another company had a larger car for me, but I was surprised and not thrilled that I made a reservation for a car they did not have to rent.
