Apollo Rental Cars Insurance

PROTECTION PACKAGE
Personal Injury
New Zealand legislation provides limited coverage for personal injury.  Apollo strongly recommends that all people travelling in New Zealand take out their own personal travel insurance.

Property Damage
The Vehicle  is  insured  for damage  to  it or damage  to  the property of a  third party.   However  the renter  is  responsible up  to  the amount of  the applicable Liability  for  the cost of  such damage  to third  party  property,  or  to  the  rented  Vehicle.    The  renter  is  also  responsible  for  the  cost  of demurrage for the period the Vehicle is unavailable due to repairs.  The Liability applies in respect of each claim, not per rental.  

Third  Party  Liability  claims  are  limited  to  $10 million  and  cover  property  damage  (including  any animal).

The Liability is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident is reported  to  the  rental company, not at  the completion of  the  rental Period.   The  rental company reserves  the  right  to  charge  the  renter  for  any  vehicle  damage  including  Third  Party  property damage not reported on return of the vehicle.  

Standard Liability
Apollo’s rental charge includes a Standard Liability of $2,000. 
The Standard Liability can be reduced by taking the following Reduction Option:

Liability Reduction Option
A Liability of $2,000 applies.  The Liability Reduction Option (AER) can be purchased by paying $20 per day at pick-up, to reduce the liability to NIL.

Bond/Deposit
A Bond/Deposit of $400 will be collected at the time of entering into the Rental Contract. 
For security purposes, only a credit card can be used  to provide a Bond/Deposit. Sufficient  funds must be available on the credit card to cover the Bond/Deposit.
The credit card holder must be present and able to sign for the Bond upon vehicle collection.  The credit card holder is jointly and severally liable for any damage to the rental vehicle.
