The Checkout Australia reviews the car hire industry and suggests to use Tripcover to save on the car rental excess insurance.
I am thinking about purchasing a rental vehicle excess insurance and have a question regarding the quotes on your website.
I see that the insurance you provide is from Allianz. I have asked Allianz for a quote and their premium is higher than yours for a 16 day rental:
$4000 AUD excess with Allianz costs $281 AUD and with you $135 AUD
$6000 AUD excess with Allianz costs $383 AUD and with you $295 AUD
Can you please help me understand why is there such a difference? Is the cover the same regardless of getting it through you or through the Allianz website?
MY REPLY WAS:
Exact same policy Josey, only you are paying a premium with Allianz and Hiccup (they are the system provider) as they are covering
21 to 75 year olds in the same policy.
We have split our policy up to:
25 to 75 and
21 to 24 year olds
So if you were 22 years old our’s would cost you around the same price as with Allianz
