Car hire excess insurance in Coffs Harbour

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 Coffs Harbour 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 Coffs Harbour.

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 Coffs Harbour car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Coffs Harbour

  • Nestled between the ocean and dense valleys, hiring a car in Coffs Harbour allows you to pack more activities into your visit. The iconic Big Banana Fun Park is just a 10min drive out of town; however, it takes roughly 45min to reach by bus and the closest stop is 1.5 km away. Likewise, the Forest Sky Pier and Dorrigo National Park are best reached by car as no direct public transport routes are available. As a regional city with bus services that mostly finish around 18:00, hire a car in Coffs Harbour to make the most of evening entertainment and dining.
  • Reception desks for Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty are located on the right-hand side of the Arrivals Hall at Coffs Harbour Airport (CFS). No shuttle is needed to reach your hire car, simply turn left as you exit the terminal and you will find the car park in front of you.
  • Due to the expanse of surrounding national parks, wildlife obstructing Coffs Harbour roads is common. Animals are most likely to wander in front of oncoming vehicles after dark, so always keep your headlights on and an eye on the edges of the road. If you are going 4x4 driving off road, inspect the local environment and clearance height while sticking to the ruts of previous vehicles. Unpaved trails around Coffs Harbour can get quite muddy after heavy rainfall and only experienced 4x4 drivers should go off road.
  • Traffic in Coffs Harbour is rather pleasant and peak hour rushes aren’t nearly bad enough to adjust your travel plans. Vehicles, especially freight trucks, can bank up along the Pacific Hwy, though congestion is mostly caused by frequent intersections rather than heavy road use. Coffs Harbour gets a lot of rain and sometimes flash flooding during the wet season, familiarise yourself with the windscreen wiper functions of your hire car to be prepared.
