Call Baaaney!

Got questions? Get on the phone to one of our sheeple. We're available Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 5:30pm.


Easy as vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom.

Relax. We cover your rental car excess costs and include additional benefits that hire car companies charge for.  In the event of a collision, or if the car is damaged or stolen while in your care your rental company will usually charge your credit card for the excess or repair costs you are liable for –  and that's where we come in. Submit a claim with us to be reimbursed for the excess amount you were charged with no hiccups.  All we need is a copy of the rental agreement and a receipt showing how much you have been billed. Too easy!

Car Hire excess Review

I saved over $100 dollars thanks to
Car Hire Excess. So
glad my friend 
reccommended rather than me paying the collision damage waiver at the depot.

I always shop around to compare car hire excess insurance. 
Don't let the car hire companies charge you extra that you don't need to pay!

Car Hire excess Review

I had an accident in my hire car hitting a kangaroo in Goulburn. So glad I took out excess reduction insurance or I would have been seriously out of pocket.
