Insurance & Liability

Is insurance included?

Yes! All prices quoted on this website have Full Comprehensive Insurance already included within the daily rate.

But just like your own car insurance there is a liability fee. This is the amount you are liable to pay in case of an accident - your fault or not.

The good news is that you can pay an additional daily surcharge to reduce the liability.

Avis

Avis has a standard liability of $3,000 to $5,000. This can be reduced to between $300 and $750 by paying an additional amount (excess reduction) per day.

The daily rate payable in respect of excess reduction is dependent upon the age of the hirer, the type of vehicle hired, and the location of hire.

Europcar

Europcar has a standard liability of  between $4,255 and $5,060 for their compact 2WD & standard 4WD vehicles. This can be reduced to $1,150 by paying an additional $29 to $34.50 per day or to $575 by paying an additional $34.50 to $40.25 per day.
