Car hire excess insurance in Suva

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 Suva 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 Suva.

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 Suva car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Suva

  • Suva is the capital of Fiji and its largest city. Car hire in Suva can open up the whole island of Viti Levu to you, allowing you to explore Natadola Beach, the tourist hub of Nadi, inland delights like Wainuta Falls and nature reserves like Koroyanitu National Park in your own time. Suva is also the commercial hub of Fiji, so if you’re there on business, Suva car hire is a practical option that allows you to take full control of your schedule. 
  • Suva-Nausori Airport (SUV), also known as Luvuluvu, is situated around 25 km northeast of central Suva. The airport is connected to Suva by Kings Road, which can get you into town in around 30-40min. You will find companies like Avis, Budget and Hertz in the arrivals area of the single terminal building. However, if you're planning on booking your car hire in Suva, remember that airport vehicles often book out in advance, so it’s worth pre-booking online. 
  • Since it’s the commercial hub of Fiji, traffic can get quite congested in Suva, with peaks at around 08:00 and 17:00 on weekdays. It also rains a lot, generally in small, passing showers. So, you may go out on a sunny morning and be hit with a downpour later in the day. It’s important to slow down to ensure you can brake and turn corners safely in wet conditions. 
  • In Suva, and on the winding roads that connect the nation’s capital to the other villages and towns of Viti Levu, you will often see stray dogs and locals hanging out along the roadways. Keep an eye out and watch your speed to ensure you’re able to react quickly. Queens Road and Kings Road will take you around the perimeter of the island. Though the road quality is good in most places, it’s important to keep an eye out for potholes, particularly after heavy rainfall.

This will give you plenty of legroom, roof racks and extra space for bags and equipment.

The maximum speed limits you’ll find on roads like Kings Road and Queen Road, which connect the coastal towns and villages of Viti Levu, is 80 km/h. However, there are many winding sections and tight turns on these roads, so keep an eye out for speed signs and always reduce your speed when navigating twisting roads and sections with potholes or other hazards.

Suva is very busy all day on Saturdays and around 08:00 and 17:00 on weekdays, so it’s best to avoid filling up at these times. Sundays are the quietest day, as many attractions are closed; however, you will find service stations open, making this a good day to fill up.

  • You can expect to pay for parking in most parts of Suva, though some shopping centres, like Suva Central and Tappoo City, do offer free parking for the first hour. You generally have to make a minimum purchase of F$ 5 (Suva Central) to F$ 20 (Tappoo City) and present your receipt to qualify for this free first hour. Parking rates can be anywhere from approximately F$ 0.80 (A$ 0.50) to F$ 2.50 (A$ 1.60) per hour. On-street parking is strictly regulated, with 30min and 60min time limits. The local government is tough on parking infringements, so it’s essential to abide by the time limit on your parking space.
