EXCESS REDUCTION OPTIONS FOR 18 YEARS & OVER
The hirer is required to take one of the following excess reduction options:
• RISK-TAKER: excess NZ$2,000.00
• CHANCE-IT: excess NZ$1,000.00 (pay an additional NZ$14.00 per day
• STRESS-FREE: excess nil plus added cover (see above) (pay an additional NZ$17.00 per day)
THE OWNER STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT ALL HIRERS TAKE THE EXCESS REDUCTION OPTIONS TO MINIMISE EXCESS EXPOSURE AND TRAVEL WITH PEACE OF MIND.
All excess options are void if the terms of the rental agreement are breached.
a) If Risk-Taker insurance has been chosen (as per the excesses options above), the excess is payable by credit card only. Please note that this amount will be debited to the hirer's credit card immediately. The bond is fully refundable provided the vehicle is returned on time to the correct
location, undamaged, with a clean interior and with a full fuel tank. Please note the bond will be debited regardless of the excess reduction option purchased through a third party.
b) The owner reserves the right to bank the bond excess after the termination of the hire agreement to cover the cost of un-notified infringements or damage to third parties or their property.
c) Where the third party causes damage, the hirer is liable for damages as specified in their rental agreement. As insurance is not compulsory in New Zealand there is no guarantee that these damages will be recovered, therefore the bond may be banked and not refunded.
d) Where the car has been returned during or outside office hours and the vehicle has undiscovered damage to the windscreen or body not covered by the hirer's chosen excess reduction cover, the hirer will be charged and sent a letter summarizing the cost of repairs.
e) A bond shall be taken for each accident. In the event of a replacement vehicle being dispatched, the bond will be twice that of the original vehicle.
f) Damage includes any and all damage to third party property, damage to the rented vehicle including tyres, windscreens, towing and recovery costs, theft, fire, break-in or vandalism. This also includes the cost of the daily rental rate for the period the vehicle is off fleet for repair.
g) The excess is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident report is completed, not at the completion of the rental. The excess will be refunded only if the owner is successful in recovering the cost of the damages from the third party. Please note that
third party claims can take many months to resolve.
