Car rental insurance protects you from any liabilities that result in injury, death to others, or any property damage that is caused while you are driving a rental car in Australia.
In Australia the law mandates that specific insurances are required for car rentals: Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection (TP). For your convenience, all of Auto Europe's rental rates in Australia include these insurances in the listed price, as well as fire and third-party liability insurances to limit your financial risk in case of an accident or theft. In many other countries your credit card can be used for car rental insurance, this is not the case in Australia. Unfortunately, no credit cards offer car rental insurance coverage in Australia - so be sure you are properly covered ahead of time.
*Auto Europe averages are based on CDW+TP insurance costs for a 3-day rental of an economy, compact, mid-size or full-size car class. The Australia car rental insurance rates listed here are estimates and are subject to change without notice.

Purchasing zero-deductible/excess CDW and Theft Protection insurance coverage with Auto Europe will cost you less than purchasing generic CDW and Theft Protection coverage at the counter. By purchasing optional zero-deductible insurance, your out-of-pocket deductible will be $0 if you happen to get in an accident or your rental car is stolen. If you purchase the mandatory CDW/TP coverage at the supplier counter, you will be subject to not only a higher daily rate, but also a potentially hefty deductible on top of that. Auto Europe's zero-deductible insurance is more afforable than purchasing directly from the supplier, and removes any risk of a high deductible payment. We are open 24/7 so feel free to give us a call at 1-888-223-5555 with any further questions regarding car rental insurance options in Australia.
Concerned about protecting your valuables while driving in Australia? Never leave expensive or irreplaceable possesions inside your car when you're not driving. For further peace of mind, Personal Effects Protection can be purchased locally at the supplier counter to insure select items if they happen to be stolen from your rental car in Australia. On average this coverage costs and additional USD$5-10 per day.
