Additional Hire Charges & Conditions Of Hire
Tolls – To keep hire costs as low as possible for our customer, we don’t include Toll cover in the hire agreement. Day Passes to cover the duration of your travel can be purchased from the appropriate toll provider, or you can use your own toll account. is available at the time of hire for $12.50 which will provide you with unlimited usage of toll roads throughout your hire. If the toll pass option is declined at the start of the rental but toll roads and/or bridges are used during the rental period, the hirer will be charged each toll fee plus an administrative fee of $30 per toll incurred.
Deposit – all hires need to pay a deposit on a credit/debit card credit account only on commencement of hire. A Standard Deposit on a local hire, longer term hires, interstate or overseas license is between $250 – $400. Deposit refunds can take up to 10 working days to process, due to the time take for the relevant traffic authority to forward any tolls charges, fines or infringements. Any additional charges which have been applied to your hire account will be deducted from any deposit refund.
Photos – we require pre-hire and post-hire photos to be taken and submitted to us to establish the condition of the hire vehicle at collection and drop off. We do this to offer your the added piece of mind and to protect you against wrongful claims of damage. We require a 4 x photos of all four side of the vehicle, plus a photo of both the odometer reading and fuel gauge. If you find this a little daunting, don’t worry we are here to help. Simply give us a call and we will talk you through exactly what we need.
Drivers – all drivers must be between 23 and 75 years of age and hold a full Australian manual/auto driver’s license. ‘Provisional P’ plate licence holders are accepted and in many cases we are able to accept International drivers licences – but additional conditions do apply.
Payment of rental charges – estimated rental charges are to be paid on the commencement of hire. If a hirer wishes to extend their hire period, they must contact the place of hire and obtain prior approval to ensure the vehicle is not otherwise booked. The extended period must be paid in advance in order to comply with our terms and conditions of hire and for continued insurance cover.
Fuel – To avoid further costs being applied to your account, it is important that all hires are returned with a full tank of fuel. The nominated fuel type can be found on the hire agreement, windscreen sticker or on the inside of the fuel cap. If the hire is not returned fully fueled, the hirer will be charged the cost of replacement fuel plus an administration fee to cover the cost of refueling.
Additional drivers – our rates are inclusive of one driver. If there will be additional drivers, they must be noted on the hire agreement and a charge of $10 per additional driver per day applies. Should a person other than the noted drivers drive our vehicle, they will not be covered under insurance.
Insurance – Standard Insurance Cover is included in most hire rates. Standard Insurance Cover reduces Hirers liability from the full value of the vehicle to a nominated excess of $7,500 subject to the terms and conditions of the standard insurance product. Global insurance coverage’s are always subject to change. Please verify at time of rental.
Excess Reduction Cover – the standard excess of $7,500 may be reduced by paying a waiver fee of $22 per hour or $100 per day. This will reduce the excess payable to $1000 in the event you need to make an insurance claim.
Payment of Insurance Excess – applies in the event of any damage to our vehicle and/or any accident/incident our vehicle may have been involved in whilst on hire, regardless of fault. It is payable immediately and prior to any claim being accepted or processed.
