Further to our previous post about Car Rental Insurance (see https://lowcostcarrentals.com.au/safety-needs/rental-cars-insurance-driver-overseas-licence/), we would like to provide some of the Low Cost Car Rentals insurance costs and excess explained.
When you hire a car in Sydney from Low Cost Car Rentals, the insurance excess will be covered by default, but with the default Insurance option, if you have an accident in our rental car and you are at fault, your insurance excess will be $2750.00.
If the accident is not your fault and then there is no dispute in liability that means if the other party agrees they are at fault (not orally, but something in written) then we will not charge you any money if you can provide the other party details. Sometimes, your travel Insurance or Credit cards would cover this Insurance Excess amount for your car rental in Sydney. But you will probably need to check with your credit card provider prior to picking up your rental car in Sydney from Low Cost Car Rentals.
But you do have an option to pay an additional $18.00 per day on top of the rental to reduce the excess down to $500.00 which is completely up to you.
Please note that we will charge you the insurance excess $2750.00 only if you have an accident and if you are at fault. We will not charge you any excess amount at the time of picking your rental car in Sydney.
Also note that, there is an additional fee $1500.00 applies on top of the above-mentioned insurance charges, if it is a single vehicle accident. For the drivers between the ages of 21-24 and above 70 years of age and for the provisional drivers’ license holder’s an additional excess fee of $750 applies on top of all the above-mentioned costs.
No insurance will be covered for overhead and under carriage damages of the rental cars. Insurance excess is payable in total immediately irrespective of the cause/ nature of the accident.
