Insurance Options

Stress-Free Cover (TPP) – (please note Stress-Free Cover is included in the All-inclusive offer) the nil liability of this package means that your customer will have the peace-of-mind that, should the worst happen, they’re completely covered. Rates for our standard fleet (ECAR to FCAR) are $35.65 per day. Rates for our specialty fleet (IFAR to UFMR) are $41.40 per day.

Reduced Risk Cover (AER) – markedly reduces the Accident Damage Excess your customer will be liable for should any damage occur to the vehicle they rent. The AER package is affordable and effective – it’s a good option for those wanting to balance their carefree travel with common-sense protection. Rates for our standard fleet (ECAR to FCAR) are $29.90 per day. This payment reduces the excess to $345. Rates for our specialty fleet (IFAR to UFMR) are $35.65 per day. This reduces the excess payment to $575.

Basic Cover – all Thrifty’s rental vehicles come with basic insurance cover. This means the hirer and authorised driver are indemnified for damage caused to the vehicle and third party property. In the event of any damage, including that to the windscreen or tyres, an Accident Damage Excess (ADE) applies. The ADE for vehicle classes ECAR to FCAR is $3,450 and the ADE for vehicle classes IFAR to UFMR is $4,025. Customers can reduce their liability by purchasing either TPP or AER.

Please note that AA Members who opt to book the ‘Value Offer’ promotion will receive a $5 daily discount off the above insurance rates.
