Various hire car companies will apply restrictions for where you can drive their rental vehicles. Many car hire companies have stipulated that their rental vehicles are not to be driven on unsealed roads. If this is the case and you drive the rental vehicle on an unsealed road, then our policy will be invalidated. However, provided the car hire company agrees that you may drive on unsealed roads and they are a public highway then the excess is covered by our policy.
Our policy will only cover you for driving on public highways. Therefore, all roads not intended for normal public use are not covered by our policy. Driveways to accommodation, such as hotels, where you are staying are intended for normal public use and so are covered.
