The hire equipment waiver is sold through a third party called Pre Fit. They are the best in the business for negotiating claims with shops and ensuring if you do need to make a claim, it is as fair as possible. The excess for the equipment is: standard hire: £200 and premium is £230. Poles are not included. Full Terms are in our Ts and Cs!
