Comprehensive car insurance - also known as fully comprehensive: This insurance covers damage to yourself, your car as well as compensating the third party if you are involved in an accident. Nevertheless, you will need to pay a deposit when picking up your rental car. If an accident occurs, the rental car supplier will refund your withheld deposit.
Deposit - You can find the amount which you will need to deposit while picking up your car in the rental conditions of your booking. Please be sure to bring your credit card with you to the station, as it is just possible to pay your deposit by credit card.

What are the options for my rental car?
With the right insurance through Queensland
Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the rental car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Australia.
For those who want to do a road trip to Queensland with a rental car, the one-way rental might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your rental car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location. This is particularly useful if you are heading for cities that are far away from each other, such as Cairns and Brisbane.
What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the rental car. Distances in Australia are often very long. If only one person drives the rental car, this can be quite exhausting. So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.

If you want to drive a lot through the terrain, you can rent an SUV. In this way, you will never get stuck. If, on the other hand, you need a rental car for the city, we recommend a small car. It is manoeuvrable and fits into even the smallest parking space. As you can see, everyone will find what they are looking for on Driveboo.com. If you want to adapt the car even more to your wishes, you can also select the options all-wheel drive, air conditioning or automatic.
Rental Car Queensland - important traffic rules:
Australia follows left-hand traffic
Penalties for road traffic offences are extremely high in Australia. Therefore, try to observe the speed limits at all times. These are 60 km/h within built-up areas, and 100 km/h outside the built-up area.
When it comes to seatbelts, all passengers are obliged to wear them.
A high penalty will be applied if you are caught drinking and driving. The permissible blood alcohol level is 0.05‰.
In the case of parking spaces where the car has to be parked perpendicular to the sidewalk, the signs determine the angle at which the car should be parked and whether it has to be facing forwards or backwards. Remember to always park in accordance with the direction of traffic, as breaking this rule will result in a penalty of $100.
It is forbidden to use your mobile phone for calling or texting while driving.
