Optional Insurance Cover
An Accident Damage Excess (incl GST) of $3,450 (ECAR to FCAR) to $4,025 (IFAR to UFMR) applies to each rental.

Exclusive Member rates (incl GST) for TPP with nil excess are $29.90 per day for standard fleet (ECAR to FCAR) and $35.65 per day for specialty fleet (IFAR to UFMR). Exclusive Member rates for AER (incl GST) are $24.15 per day for standard fleet (ECAR to FCAR), reducing the excess to $345; and $29.90 per day for specialty fleet (IFAR to UFMR), reducing the excess to $575.
