It can be confusing how much excess you will incur if you have an accident in a rental vehicle. Many consumers are unaware that car rental “insurance” is very different to the insurance they purchase for their private vehicle or even travel insurance and the standard excesses are much higher. East Coast Car Rentals provides the following options to reduce your excess in the event of damage.
Windscreen and Tyre Cover
Windscreen and Tyre Cover protects the renter for damage to these items. Windscreen means "front" windscreen. Windscreen damage refers to chips, cracks or stars to the windscreen. "Tyre" means any one of the four tyres on the vehicle at any given time. Tyre damage refers to punctures, cuts and abrasions due to normal driving conditions. In the event of damage to these items, there will be no charge. The cost is $5.00 per day.
Loss Damage Waiver (LDW)
Loss Damage Waiver protects you against damage caused as a result of Multi Vehicle Accidents and single vehicle accidents. You are also covered for hail and storm damage (except flood damage), theft, fire and animal damage, to the reduced liability amount where LDW is purchased.
