Australia Car Hire Excess

DOMESTIC COVER

Cover for Australians, New Zealanders and overseas visitors who are hiring a car and travelling within Australia.

Whether you’re an Australian that frequently hires a car or an overseas visitor looking to explore the expanses of the land down under, we’ll cover the rental vehicle excess that you are liable for. In Australia, if you rent a car and it’s damaged, lost or stolen, you will be charged an excess by the rental car company.  This charge is often upwards of $3,000 for a standard vehicle and up to $8,000 for campervans and motorhomes.  But Baaaney has a baaargain for you.

  • Car rental excess cover from $4,000 up to $8,000
  • Nil excess to pay

Why Buy With Baaaney

Australia Car Hire Excess
Excess Reimbursement

We'll remiburse you for the cost of repairs or the insurance excess that you are charged if your hire car is involved in an accident or is stolen while in your care, whichever is the sheepest.

Overseas Visitors

Whether your're visiting from overseas, or an Aussie planning an international adventure, we've got your road map covered. Policies can be purchased by customers irrespective of residency for travel within Australia.

Overseas rental car excess
Single Vehicle Mishaps

Some policies will only reduce your rental excess if your car is involved in an accident with another vehicle.  We'll cover you for single vehicle accidents for those common scenarios like scraping the side of your car on that moving wall.

Vehicle Return

We'll cover the cost (up to $500) to return your vehicle to the nearest depot if a medical adviser has confirmed that you are unfit to do so.
