One way you can save heaps on your next car rental is by polietly refusing the desk staff’s offer to reduce the $3300 excess. Then go to Tripcover’s website or use the iPhone or Android app to cover your car rental excess in 3 simple steps.
From as low as $5.51 per day (over 15 day rental), Tripcover’s rates are up to 75% less than the car rental companies which can be more than $33 per day. And you can even get a 10% frequent flyer dscount.
Alternatively you could drive with the $3300 excess dangling over your head but this can be expensive in the event of an accident and also an extra worry when you are traveling.
The down side to Tripcover’s cover is that in the event of an accident the car rental company will charge your credit/debit card and renters will need to claim the reimbursement from Alllianz Global Assistance.
It is all a matter of weighing up the risks but using Tripcover to reduce your exposure is now a real option, with NZ and international policy options coming next month and also an annual policy in August this year.
Tripcover’s cause is to offer car rental customers the peace of mind that comes with having their car rental excess covered and not costing an arm and a leg.
