Car Hire Excess Comparision    Car Hire Excess Comparison

When you're hiring a car it seems logical to pay the excess reduction fees. After all, who wants to be stuck with an enormous bill in the event of a smash? No thanks! However, the costly excess reduction fees offered by car hire companies can often drain your wallet faster than a leaky gas tank. With time-a-ticking and huge expenses to weigh up you may feel you have no choice but to hand over your credit card!

Don’t be fleeced by overpriced excess reduction fees. The huge mark-ups car hire companies charge are exorbitant and uneccessary.

Our excess reduction insurance is a far cheaper option than anything your car rental company has to offer. Need proof? Just check out the comparison chart below! 

To reduce your excess to approximately $300 major car hire companies will usually charge a per-day rate of $22 to $33 a day.

Meanwhile our cover will cost you around $10 a day*, in turn reducing your excess to $0. That means you pay absolutely nothing in the event of an accident!

Why else should ewe buy with Baaaney? 

More cover 
Cover you buy direct from car hire companies often excludes insurance for overhead, water and underbody damage. We cover those and more. 

Pay nothing if you have an accident
Don't pay more for less! For a fraction of the price of the rental companies, our policy reduces your rental car excess down to $0. That means you pay nothing if you have an accident. On the other hand, the majority of rental companies make you pay a motza to reduce your excess down to a few hundreds dollars. So despite those inflated fees you'll still have to pay in the event of an accident. That's Baaaney bonkers!

vehicles so long as they do not exceed 4.5 tonnes.
