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 $4,000. They then charge an extra $30 per day to reduce your excess to around $500.

Bayswater starts with a low standard excess for new cars at only $2,000. Our optional Top Cover at $14 per day (capped at $98) 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.
