Car hire excess insurance in Toowoomba

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 Toowoomba 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 Toowoomba.

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 Toowoomba car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Toowoomba

  • Toowoomba is situated about 700 m above sea level with sloping mountains forming the Great Dividing Range in all directions, meaning a hire car is crucial if you want to avoid walking up steep hills. Bus services in Toowoomba operate approximately once every 30–60min, meaning you may spend a decent amount of time waiting to be picked up if you don’t have a hire car. Table Top Mountain is best accessed by car as the nearest bus station is more than 2 km away, requiring more than 200 m of vertical ascent. Driving to the Japanese Gardens at USQ takes only 10min from the centre of Toowoomba, while buses require closer to 30min.
  • Once you land at Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport (WTB), it’s easy to spot the reception offices of Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty inside the terminal near the baggage claim.

Hiring a car at Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport may help you save money as a one-way shuttle to the CBD is priced at roughly A$ 36.
  • As roads throughout Toowoomba have steep inclines and declines, drivers should take care to watch the speedometer and brake to avoid speeding. The city has a relaxed atmosphere despite its population size and jaywalking is common, meaning it’s best to approach intersections slowly with an eye on footpaths. If you are planning on off-roading with 4WD, tyre pressure should not be adjusted unless driving on sand and the front of the car should face the highest point when climbing rocks.
