What options do I have to remove or reduce rental excess?

If you get into an accident or your rental vehicle is stolen or damaged in use, you will have to pay an excess charge. This charge can be upwards of $6,000, depending on the car and the rental company. You can remove or reduce your excess completely with the following options:

1. Pay for an excess waiver with the car rental company

The cost of this will vary depending on the destination you're in and is usually charged at a daily rate. Some rental companies may only let you reduce a part of your excess charge.

2. Buy car rental excess insurance

Companies like Tripcover.com.au and Rentalcover.com offer insurance that purely covers you for car rental excess charges. You can learn more about car rental excess insurance here.

3. Buy travel insurance with car rental excess cover

Travel insurance policies typically include car rental excess cover automatically and with cover up to $6,000. The benefit of getting rental excess through travel insurance is that you also get travel insurance cover!
