Car hire excess insurance in Devonport

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 Devonport 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 Devonport.

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 Devonport car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Devonport

  • Straddling the northern Tasmanian coastline, Devonport is often a blustery place and so having the security of a hire car is sure to make your visit more comfortable. With harsh winds and regular rain throughout the year, waiting outside for public transport in Devonport is not ideal. Driving to attractions such as Coles Beach and Mersey Bluff Lighthouse takes less than 10min from the centre of Devonport, while the journey by bus is roughly 30min. Coach transfers to Launceston usually depart just twice per day at 09:30 and 11:00, making a hire car the more flexible option.
  • Devonport Airport (DPO) has only one terminal and the reception desks of Thrifty, Avis, Hertz, Budget and Europcar are easy to spot once you land. The car park outside is also simple to navigate and you’ll be able to walk to your hire car quickly. There is no direct public transport service to Devonport Airport from the city and a hire car will save a cab fare of approximately A$ 30.
  • Devonport has plenty of roundabouts and you should remember to indicate as you enter and exit. Also, reduce your speed as you approach roundabouts to ensure there is ample time to check for oncoming vehicles. The landscape of Devonport is considerably hilly and it’s recommended to keep a watchful eye on the speedometer to prevent speeding while descending a steep street.
  • Peak hour is worst between 08:00–09:00 and 16:00–17:30 in Devonport; however, it’s a lot calmer than major cities across Australia and won’t affect your travel noticeably. A rush of congestion is common every Saturday evening around 19:00, when the Spirit of Tasmania ferry docks, mostly influencing Bass Hwy as commuters make their way towards Launceston.
