Car rental excess add-on

Our rental car excess add-on covers the insurance excess on any dings, dents or theft to your hire car overseas or in Australia.

Extra cover for car rental excess

If you hire a vehicle from a car rental company while on your trip and it is involved in an accident, is damaged or is stolen while in your care, Travel by Us will pay you the excess on the car rental insurance you took our with the car hire company.

The most we will pay is $5,000.

Rental vehicle means only a rented sedan, campervan, hatchback or station wagon, four-wheel drive or mini bus/people mover rented from a licensed motor vehicle rental company.

Keep in mind

You must have a signed rental agreement from a licensed car rental company and have taken an insurance option on your car hire. 

In addition to ‘What we don’t cover at all’, we will not pay if

  • you use a rental vehicle not in accordance with the rental agreement
  • you use a rental vehicle to transport items other than personal luggage

Very specific and strict conditions apply. Not all rules and exclusions have been listed here. Please see the Combined Product Disclosure Statement and Policy Wording for full details.
