Sometimes. In general, your reservation is pending until full payment is made by credit or debit card. In certain circumstances, such as a rental that has a start date further in advance than two months, we may accept your reservation and ask for payment closer to the rental start date.
We charge a flat transaction rate of 2.5% for all credit and debit card transactions. We do not charge extra for American Express or Diners club card transactions. This transaction fee is not refunded where a cancellation is processed and a refund of rental charges is provided.
No. Instead of charging a refundable security deposit, we process a pre-authorisation to reserve funds on your credit or debit card, in an amount equal to the Insurance Excess chosen. This pre-authorisation is not a charge and these funds are only reserved for the duration of your rental. Where no additional charges are incurred, these funds are automatically released at the end of your rental period.
We understand that you may run late due to unforseen circumstances. We are flexible within reason for late vehicle returns, and provide a one hour grace period. If you fail to return the vehicle within that grace period, an additional minimum hourly rate of $20.00 plus a GST component per hour will be charged.

Please review our Cancellation Policy for further information.

Accidents & Damage

Yes. All of our vehicles are comprehensively insured. Depending on the Insurance Excess you choose during reservation, you may be liable to pay an agreed Insurance Excess amount if you are involved in a traffic accident or if the vehicle is otherwise damaged during your rental.
Yes. We offer two levels of Insurance Excess Reduction. You can choose to reduce the excess amount to either $1,250 or $500 for a competitive daily fee. When you select the highest Insurance Excess Reduction level, you are also provided with our Windscreen and Tyre Damage Waiver, which covers you against any accidental damage that may occur to the Windscreen or Tyres of the vehicle during your rental. This extra cover waives you of any liability for this standalone damage and you will not be required to pay any Insurance Excess if no other vehicle damage is sustained. Our standard Insurance Excess for all vehicles where no Excess Reduction is selected is $2,500.
Insurance Excess is payable in the event of an accident or if the vehicle is otherwise damaged during your rental period. The amount of excess payable depends on your chosen Excess Reduction, which can be selected when placing your reservation. If the vehicle damage was caused by a traffic accident and you are deemed not at fault, the excess amount you have paid will be fully refunded to you.
We always ensure our vehicles are maintained in excellent condition, however sometimes small dents and scratches will occur. You will receive a current Condition Report when you collect your car, and we invite you to make any additions to this report before commencing your rental if you feel we have missed documenting something. Additions to this report can be made by customers directly through our website.
