4x4 Excess Coverage

For an overview of car excess in your country, try our Car Hire Excess Coverage page or for larger vehicles, try our motorhome and campervan excess coverage overview.

The following list is useful for determining what is excluded from the excess reduction policies offered by 4x4 hire companies. If you have taken out excess reduction the following exclusions mean that you would still be required to pay the cost of repairs to your rented 4WD in full (up to the standard liability). RentalCover.com however covers the claim types listed (subject to the policy terms which can be viewed when you request a quote).

Australia & New Zealand

THL: Britz/Mighty/Maui

Has a protection package called ACP (Additional Coverage Protection). This covers any damage costs associated with a single vehicle rollover. ACP is only available in conjunction with the purchase of Liability Reduction Option 2, The Almighty & Bonus Pack. Cost is $99 per rental. Bond stays the same ($250 for motorhomes/campervans, $500 for 4WDs).

There is an option for 4WDs called Easy Cover Plus. If you purchase Liability Reduction Option 2, The Almighty or The Bonus Pack, a one-off payment of AU$350 per hire will reduce your accident liability to $0 and provides coverage for accidental damage to the overhead and underbody sections of the 4WD Campervan, unlimited tyre and windscreen coverage and towing and vehicle recovery costs from 4WD roads where permission from Britz to travel on these roads has been granted. Includes single vehicle rollover damage coverage. The 4WD Easy Cover option can only be purchased upon vehicle collection at the rental desk.
