Newcastle Car & Truck rental

 

What will it cost me if there is accident damage or loss?

 

The rates we quote you already include our 'best' and most comprehensive Damage Cover (called ‘Top Cover’*). You don’t have to pay extra for our best cover.

Most other companies, especially the ‘major’ companies quote you a rate then you pay extra to reduce your damage liability. These extra fees vary with charges from around $20 to $40 extra per day!

We always give you the all-inclusive, 'drive-away' rate which includes our best cover - first time, every time.

* 'Top Cover' is the name of our best damage cover.

3 common scenarios of Damage &/or Loss

(always subject to the complete
Hire Terms & Conditions)

For scenario 1 or 2 you pay the Damage Liability Fee applicable to your vehicle type when:-

1. You have a crash with another vehicle
More than one vehicle is involved in an incident that causes Damage &/or Loss to our vehicle &/or any item(s) regardless of fault.
If, & only when, fault can be clearly established to be that of a fully identified other party, any Liability Fee you paid is fully refunded.

2.There is damage but no other driver was involved

You pay the additional ‘Single Vehicle Liability Fee’ when our vehicle suffers ANY Damage or Loss of any kind that does not involve another driver.
This includes, for example, incidents such as hail storm damage, broken windscreen due to flying rock, collision with an animal or collision with a parked vehicle etc.

3.There is damage which is NOT covered

In scenario 3 you pay for all damage

Overhead/Underbody &/or Truck Pantech Damage
This includes any damage to the Pantech box section of a truck &/or the roof of a vehicle driven under an item lower than the vehicle height. For example incidents of damage to the pipe/sprinkler systems in covered car parks, awnings, tree’s or drive-thrus. ANY damage caused by the vehicle to any item/object overhead is NOT covered.
