Insurance Cover

Home Insurance Cover

All of our vehicles are fully insured (Full License Required) and this is included in your daily rental. However please be aware that in NZ 3rd party insurance cover is not compulsory. Unfortunately, this means if an uninsured driver hits you, it can be a lengthy & major exercise to endeavour to recover your excess. We strongly advise all our clients to take some form of excess waiver to reduce the risks.

Also in line with all other Rental Companies, you are liable for the excess no matter who is at fault. Single vehicle accidents,accidents caused by reckless or dangerous driving & theft attract a $2000 or $2500 excess.

If you take our $0 excess waiver you will automatically be covered for accidents (including single car accidents, glass cover & theft (with the exception of leaving keys in the vehicle).

INSURANCE EXCESS WAIVER OPTIONS

Comprehensive Insurance is included in the daily cost of the vehicle with a Standard excess of NZ$2000 including GST. Based on different vehicle categories a higher excess of NZ$2500 including GST may apply. (A bond will be authorised against your credit card if you choose not to purchase an excess waiver)

Full License Required for all insurance.

IMPORTANT

THINGS YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF WITH THE ASSURED & BASIC PROTECTION’S EXCESS REDUCTION

  • The excess amount will be pre-authorised on the hirers credit card at the commencement of the rental.
  • You are responsible for the excess amount in the event of damage regardless of who is at fault. Our insurers will try and recover the excess from the other party if they are deemed to be at fault, however as insurance it is not compulsory is New Zealand this is not always possible.
  • The excess must be paid at the time of the accident regardless of cover provided by an independant travel insurance policy. In this case you will need to claim the excess back from your insurers.
