Car hire excess insurance in Brisbane

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Brisbane car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Brisbane.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Brisbane car rental.

10.0 Excellent21 Jun. 2021
Pros: After googling cheaper car companies and reading horror review stories it was refreshing to speak to a helpful, friendly staff member who reassured me in regards to the cars and the service Crazy Clarks offer. Thanks Nigel. Thank you also to Peter who picked us up from the airport. Peter was also very friendly and offered local dining tips. Our little Suzuki Swift was ideal for Brisbane driving and parking. We'll definitely book again.
10.0 Excellent13 Jun. 2021
Pros: Staff and price were awesomeCons: Collecting the car is not at the airport, however they offer courtesy collection and drop off.

Great experience for the price - good value.Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful. We decided we wanted to extend another day and called a few hours before we were due to return and Alpha were happy to add another day on at the same price - no excessive charge which was great. No complaints about the car either, great condition and very economical which helped with the overall expense of hiring a car!Cons: The pick up / shuttle service is a little clunky and adds time on to the overall exchange but it’s worth it for the cheaper price you get for shopping a little further a field.

Pros: The process was so easy and the staff were clear and helpful.Cons: It was hard to find our car at first because no one showed us where it was.
4.8 Okay13 Aug. 2018
Cons: I had done my application online, but the Budget office at the Brisbane airport had NO WORKING INTERNET CONNECTION, so I was unable to show them what I had purchased on my laptop. Yep, that's right. I had to purchase a MORE EXPENSIVE deal there, and then had to drive downtown the next day to the Budget office and get it straightened out, and I'm still not sure that it was done properly.

7.2 Good15 May 2019
Pros: The original lady i spoke to at Hendra was excellent. However had to make several calls to get advice on repairs to puncture i had recieved. Phone Brisbane office which then transfers you to Hendra where you have to wait lengthy waits at both places. Very frustrating.Cons: The actual cost was more than i expected in fact double because of insurance costs. Plus i had half a day getting a puncture repaired as tyre dealers didn't have the unusual size that Hyudai have put on there latest cars.

Everything else was top, 100%, LEGIT, LEGEND. Insurance wasn’t even that expensive so maybe I’m being a drama queen, haha!

Get what you pay forPros: Easy pick up and drop off at airportCons: Exterior of car was dirty and tires needed air, had to demand a new car after we looked at the car and saw the wheels bowing out from lack of air. Terrible customer service, dodgy insurance eg claims you have rediculous excess to pay even if you aren’t in fault of any damage to the car, even if it’s fault of another driver.
6.0 Good9 Jan. 2018
Pros: Car was very clean and comfortableCons: Hidden extras in costs, our total ended up being double what we had originally planned. Two to four weeks to return the $200 bond, am currently trying to find out why so long.

Classic bait and switch at Brisbane AirportCons: I booked the premium car three months in advance - they didn't have one when I arrived. They offered either a large gas guzzling SUV or a Camry. I took the Camry, and they refused to give me a lower rate. End up paying hundreds of $ more than I should have for the 3-week rental, but it was 5:30am after a 14 hour flight and I wasn't about to go shopping elsewhere.

Top tips for hiring a car in Brisbane

  • Brisbane is the capital of the Sunshine State and boasts the best outdoor activities Australia has to offer. Whether your preference is to head upstream and take in the winding beauty of the Brisbane River or escape to the beaches that line the coast, renting a car will provide you unrivaled access to Australia’s great outdoors. Don’t miss the opportunity to travel an hour north of Brisbane to the world famous Australia Zoo, where you can see the largest display of the adorable and terrifying animals that Down Under is known for. If you don’t quite have the time to drive to Australia Zoo, consider taking a trip to Daisy Hill Koala Center to see the famous marsupials.
  • Brisbane Airport is located 12 km (7 mi) from the city center has many major hire companies for you to choose from. Once you arrive at Brisbane Airport, the counters will be located on Level 2 of the International Terminal. If you are arriving on a domestic flight after visiting a different Australian city, the hire desks will be located on Level 1 of the Domestic Terminal.
  • Australians drive on the left-hand side of the road, so this will be the first thing to get used to. If you are driving towards or near bushland or parks such as D’Aguilar or North Stradbroke Island, be wary of animals that may venture on to the road. Take care and reduce your speed if you do see any animals by the side of the road. Be careful if you plan to have a glass of wine or beer with your lunch and the drive, as the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.05%.
  • Rush hour can cause plenty of congestion on the highways leading to and from Brisbane, as many workers commute to surrounding cities such as the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. The traditional rush hour occurs in Brisbane between 7 am and 9 am during the morning work scramble, and between 4 pm and 7 pm in the afternoon.
