The long answer
A deposit is compulsory – at Enterprise it’s fixed at £200 for most vehicles. But don’t worry, it is refundable provided the vehicle is returned in the same condition. Excess protection is optional- you can choose to pay it in order to lower the amount of money you could be liable for in the event of accidental damage or theft.
