When hiring a rental car, a deposit is required
Deposits are always paid when you pick up the rental car, for example at the Sydney Airport. After returning the car to the rental station, the deposit will be immediately refunded. If you have chosen the option of hiring the car with comprehensive insurance without any excess; and there is some damage found on the car, for example, due to a small rear-end collision, you will still get the full deposit refunded. With this sort of insurance, it does not matter if you have to pay the deposit. We recommend, renting a car with high insurance is cheaper than paying the costs for an accident and not getting the full deposit refunded.
Which insurance should I take?
If something happens to the car, due to bad road conditions (speed bumps) or an accident - we have several offers regarding insurances. On our website, you can compare the different offers with the price comparison service. We recommend, renting a car with a fully comprehensive insurance policy without excess. But is it worth it? When booking this option, you are on the safe side. It may not appear to be so cheap at first glance, but in case of an accident, you won’t have to pay any additional costs for damage.
