You pay less if the car is damaged
When hiring a car, it’s crucial to know what you’ll pay if the car is damaged. This is the ‘damage excess’.
Video: What is Damage Excess?
Most car rental companies in Australia have a standard damage excess of $3,000. They then charge an extra $20 to $30 per day to reduce your excess to around $500.
Bayswater starts with a low standard excess for new cars at only $1000. Our optional $8 per day Top Cover further reduces your liability to $0 (that's right, you pay nothing in the event of an accident).
You can add Top Cover to your quote when you book.
