Coverage Options | Avis Car Rental

Car Rental Coverage Options

In Australia, if your rental vehicle is involved in an accident, an excess generally applies. We have three levels of coverage available that determine the amount of excess you will pay if an accident does occur.

All of our vehicles have a standard level of coverage included, our Standard Excess. If you want more peace of mind, you also have the option purchase Excess Reduction or Zero Excess to reduce your financial liability (excess) for an additional daily fee. This fee varies by age of renter, location, type of vehicle, and rate.

View our Fair Wear and Tear Guide for a clear distinction between reasonable fair wear and tear and unacceptable damage.
