How Accident Cover Works
All of our cars have cover for Single Vehicle and Multi-Vehicle Damage included in the daily rate as per the terms outlined in your Rental Agreement(Minimum Cover). The amount of the drivers liability on the vehicle is $3,500.00 AUD for drivers aged 18 years and over.
Reduce the amount of the renter’s liability by purchasing one of our Ace Safe Cover options.
For drivers aged 18 and over the liability on damage can be lowered down to $0 (zero), and the bond down to $100.
This option also includes;
- Zero Liability on Tyre & Glass Damage
- Zero Liability on Hail Damage
- Free Additional Driver
ACE EXCESS REDUCTION
For drivers aged 18 and over the liability can be lowered down to $1500, and the bond lowered to $500.
Glass and Tyre Protection
Customers who have not opted for ACE Safe Cover may still purchase Glass and Tyre liability reduction (reduces Glass & Tyre Liability to $0). The cost of this is: $5 per day if ACE Excess Reduction is taken. $7 per day if Minimum Cover is applied. (Capped at 15 and 45 days)
All hires require a security bond to cover the liability in the event the vehicle is damaged. This is in the form of a $750 AUD hold authorised on a credit card. This amount can be reduced to $500 by purchasing Ace Excess Reduction. For those purchasing Ace Plus Protection the security bond is only $100.
This may be done by either of the following methods:
Credit Card – A pre-authorisation will be taken on the hirer’s credit card which will place a hold for the required amount against the customers available credit. This authorisation will be released by the customers issuing bank in accordance with their own terms & conditions, on conclusion of the rental period.
Debit Card – A pre authorisation will be taken on the hirer’s debit card which will ‘freeze’ an amount against the customers available funds. This authorisation will be released by the customers issuing bank in accordance with their own terms & conditions, on conclusion of the rental period.
NOTE: Cash or EFTPOS payments will NOT be accepted as security against the hire of a vehicle, only credit cards or Debit Visa or Mastercard.
