How Much is Excess?

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, minibuses 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. Alternatively, you can call our customer care team and they can find it out for you. Not only can your excess depend on what type of vehicle you are hiring, it can also be impacted by which rental car company you are hiring from. Each rental company has unique terms and conditions, and it is important that you are familiar with the liability amounts from your chosen company. There are ways that you can cover your excess which include purchasing Rental Vehicle Excess Insurance to cover your excess or Excess Reduction that can reduce your excess.
