Car hire excess insurance in Kalgoorlie

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 Kalgoorlie 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 Kalgoorlie.

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 Kalgoorlie car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Kalgoorlie

  • Kalgoorlie (also known as Kalgoorlie-Boulder) is a small mining city and was the central hub of the Australian gold rush, but it is quite remote. Car hire in Kalgoorlie is a good idea so that you can easily get to attractions like the Super Pit, a working gold mine, on one side of the city and Kalgoorlie Golf Course on the other side. You can also travel further to Lake Ballard, about a 2h drive from Kalgoorlie, and other attractions in the area.
  • Kalgoorlie Airport (KGI) is a small airport. Car hire in Kalgoorlie can be done through Avis, Budget and Europcar from within the terminal building. Hertz and Thrifty operate shuttles from the terminal to the hire depot alongside the airport. Search through KAYAK ahead of time to book and find the best deal. If you arrive to the city centre of Kalgoorlie by train, there is also an Avis branch in town.
  • Kalgoorlie is in the state of Western Australia, and so, the state’s road rules apply. Many of the common rules of the road are in place, such as not using your mobile phone while driving and not driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit is 0.05%. You need to give way to public buses, U-turns aren’t allowed at traffic lights unless a sign indicates otherwise, and, in Australia, you drive on the left-hand side of the road.
  • The city is relatively easy to navigate, so you shouldn’t have any problems with car hire in Kalgoorlie itself. If you venture further afield into the countryside, be sure to check you have enough petrol, some drinking water, food supplies and spare tyres. You don’t want to break down in the outback without any of these. It’s also a good idea to let your accommodation know where you are heading, just in case. Watch out for kangaroos jumping across the road, especially around dawn/dusk and after dark.

When buying fuel in Australia, it is generally cheaper in the cities and urban areas than in the countryside, where fuel is not so readily available. In the outback of Western Australia, there are petrol stations every 100-300 km, so it is recommended to bring extra fuel if you are going on a big road trip.

  • You can park in any designated parking areas, but make sure you read the parking sign carefully. Some parking has time limits and fees; be sure to display the ticket in the window of your vehicle. Always park with the flow of traffic, as vehicles are not allowed to park facing oncoming traffic. If you have a current registered Disability Parking Permit, you are usually permitted to use street or kerbside parking for double the signposted time.
