Funny one with Hertz (although once again never been asked for additional docs). If you notice they say "Another form of ID such as your current passport or a utility bill, with your name and address shown". that is to say your passport doesn't have your address on, it's just poorly written and they only mean the utility bill if you can't produce passport.
Hope this helps ease your concerns.

True Warwick, but I will still prefer to go the peer to peer route much more and with easyclub the insurance also covers windows, I think it's just far less hassle to be honest and worth a try, will update once rented.Kilkis wrote:I have never come across a rental company in the UK with only 3rd party insurance. They all have Collision Damage Waiver but with an ever increasing excess, e.g. £1,500 now for a pretty cheap car. It is true that they try to sell you their own policy to reduce the excess but they are astronomically expensive. If you intend to simply carry the risk of the excess then I agree that having a smaller excess is a benefit but if you intend to purchase an excess insurance policy from a third party I don't see how it matters how big the excess is?
