When a car is hired in Australia and New Zealand insurance for damage, theft and third party liability are generally included in the car rental price. There is almost always an excess (also referred to as CDW, Super CDW, Non Waiver or Deductible) on the damage and theft insurance portions of the rental. It is this excess that the Tripcover Vehicle Rental Excess Insurance is covering up to $4000, $6000, or $8000 in excess liability.
