Rental vehicle excess is the amount that you would have to pay in the event that your rental vehicle is stolen or damaged, while in your care. With Zoom's domestic travel insurance, you don't need stress about the crazy hire car excess fees or reducing your excess at the rental agencies counter. If you have a bingle, we will reimburse you for up to $5,000 for any excess that you have to pay or deductible under your rental vehicle hiring agreement. If you require more cover, you can choose to increase the amount of cover up to $8,000 during the payment process. Note that you may only add or upgrade vehicle excess prior to picking up the car.

It’s no wonder we brand ourselves as the lucky country. We’ve got white sandy beaches that stretch for miles, technicolor reefs full of coral and marine life, expanses of outback sands like no other and some pretty wacky wildlife to marvel at.
Despite Australia being one of the most remote countries in the world, it is one of the most popular destinations for overseas visitors, which does make you ponder. Why not put your passport away and take a tour in your own backyard with some of the most down-to-earth, friendly folk around?
No matter which part of Australia you’re planning to explore, Zoom’s domestic travel insurance has you covered. If you’re planning an international trip, you should compare our overseas travel insurance plans.
