How Much is Excess?
Commonly, your excess will range between $3,000 to $8,250 however, you should always check your car rental agreement as prices may differ, especially with prestige, 4WDs, mini buses and motorhomes. If you have rented a car and are wondering what your excess may be, check your rental agreement. This will show you the exact cost that your excess is. The excess amount can be affected by a number of different factors. Not only can it depend on what type of vehicle you are hiring, it can also be impacted by which rental car company you are hiring from and where you collect the car. Each rental company has unique terms and conditions, and it is important that you are familiar with the liability amounts from your chosen company. Vehicles hired from premium locations can have a higher excess liability. Airport depots often have a surcharge that increases your liability amount.
