    New Zealand Car Rental Insurance

    New Zealand Car Rental InsuranceIn New Zealand, the law requires that all car rentals must have two types of insurances: A Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection (TP). Fortunately, every single one of Auto Europe's rates in New Zealand include both these insurances, and fire and third-party liability insurance to limit your financial risk in the unfortunate case of an rental car accident or vehicle theft. In rare cases in New Zealand specific credit cards will offer CDW/TP insurance coverage, but be sure to verify with your credit card company before reserving your car rental in New Zealand from Auto Europe.

    Why Buy Comprehensive Car Rental Insurance in New Zealand

    In addition to Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection insurance, Auto Europe offers additional comprehensive insurance, called zero-deductible insurance that as the name suggests reduces your insurance deductible to $0. With generic coverage purchased at the counter you'll have a higher daily rate, and will then have a hold on your credit card until you return the vehicle for a deductible amount that can exceed $4,450. Auto Europe's zero-deductible insurance saves you money over generic coverage and eliminates the risk of a high deductible payment in the chance you get into an accident or the car is stolen.
