Check this out and see why finding an alternative to the car rental companies’ insurance is a necessity. If you have ever rented a car in Australia or New Zealand you will notice the sinking feeling you get while at the rental desk.
We have been in the car rental industry for over 15 years and the one thing that we found that the customer hated is dealing with the insurance.
Below are the rates of a typical greedy car rental company for their CDW
(Collision Damage Waiver – they are not allowed to refer to it as insurance)
- They leave you with $6000 liability
- For $38 a day they reduce your liability to $1100
- For $49 a day they will reduce your liability to $550
That can be more than the rental itself!
Alternatively Tripcover’s rates start from $9.30 per day with a $300 excess and
reduces down to $5.61 over a 15 day rental.
