Insurance

Insurance is included in prices quoted by Red Hot Rentals. The excess on the insurance is $1,500. The excess can be reduced to $1,000 by paying an additional $6 per day or to $500 by paying an additional $12 per day. This reduction is only available to hirers over 25 years of age and under 85 years of age.

However, if animal damage occurs to the vehicle the excess stays at $1,500 regardless of whether the hirer has nominated to reduce the excess on the insurance.

Furthermore, all insurance is rendered void if the vehicle is driven on unsealed or un-gazetted roads or if driven by an un-nominated driver.

The driver is liable for all overhead damage to vans, trucks, mini-buses and 4WD vehicles.

All punctures, tyre damage, parking fines and traffic violation will be charged to the hirer.

The vehicle is not insured if the driver is under the influence of alcohol, drugs, unlicensed or not included on the contract.

The Insurance excess does cover windscreen damage and other glass breakage.

A full list of term and conditions will be provided to the hirer on the reverse of their contract.
