All RentalCars24/7 vehicles come with Full, Comprehensive Insurance.
This Excess is held (Pre-Authorised) on your credit card when you collect the vehicle.
Third party Insurance is not mandatory in New Zealand, therefore, the full amount of the excess will be charged in the event of an accident/damage is done to the vehicle, regardless of fault.
Only a CREDIT CARD will be accepted for security of the hire if Basic Cover is taken
Standard Cover 24/7 reduces your liability to $500
This does not include Windscreen or Tyre cover.
Debit Cards are accepted as security if this CDW option is taken when you collect the vehicle
Full Cover 24/7 gives you total piece of mind, lowering your excess to $0
Thats right, $0!, so if any damage occurs while on hire, rest easy knowing your excess is $0!
This package also includes Windscreen & Tyre cover. This means if you get a stone chip in the Windscreen, or if you puncture a tyre while on your travels, we will cover the cost of this for you!
