Question Car Hire for Americans visiting UK ?

I always think I know what i'm doing and then doubt myself, so I ask the dibbers for some advice... this one I wonder if any of you can help with.

My 'Long lost brother' from the USA is visiting next week, he want to hire a car so he can visit places and other family members. I have had a quote and arranged a hire car for him.

The excess on the insurance is 1000.00

He has been advised in the USA to take out Super CDW 𝙸𝚗𝚜𝚞𝚛𝚊𝚗𝚌𝚎 coverage: (Zero dollar deductible coverage) to avoid any nasty bills when he returns home, for things like scratches minor dents etc... He has never driven in the UKk before so I think this is advisable.

However the hire car company are offering me;The car comes with the following excess as standard:

BODY OF CAR WINDSCREEN/TYRES AA COVER

1000 1000 NOT INCLUDED

There are a few options to reduce this excess which can be added on the day:



BODY OF CAR WINDSCREEN/TYRES AA COVER
19.50/DAY 100 0 INCLUDED

13.50/DAY 100 100 NOT INCLUDED

6/DAY 1000 0 INCLUDED



My question is ... when I go to Spain and hire a car I take the basic package and take out my own independent insurance for the hire car for the period of my hire and that may cost me around 30 in total... can my Brother do the same from the USA to save these costs?

Anyone have any advice they can offer?
