DriveAway Hire Car Excess Insurance

What is Insurance Excess?

Rental rates include basic insurance – Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), Third Party Liability and Theft Protection (TP). In the event that a rental vehicle is stolen or accidently damaged (whether the driver is at fault or not), the Insurance Excess is the maximum amount the renter is liable for.

The cost varies depending on the supplier, country and vehicle type e.g. in France the excess can range from €500-1,800. Additional coverage to reduce the excess is optional and can be purchased direct from the supplier when picking up your car. Alternatively, DriveAway Holidays offers insurance at the time of booking to cover any damage and theft excess charges up to $5,000 NZD.
