    For Example:

    James had a car accident

    James hired a car from one of the rental companies in Australia and his rental excess is $4,000. James has purchased an a RVE Insurance $6,000 plan with nil excess. During his trip, he accidentally reversed his rental car into a pole in the car park which caused damage to the rear bumper, glass and window. The car rental company assessed the damage repair cost to be $4,500.
    James' credit card was charged $4,000 by the car rental company for the damage (his capped excess amount as stated in the Rental Agreement) and the car rental company shouldered the additional $500 damage cost that was above his excess liability. James then lodged a claim to the RVE insurer. The RVE insurer reimbursed James the full $4,000 for his out-of-pocket expenses charged by the car rental company.​
