The rental car will be covered for theft and accidents as part of the hire price you will see displayed on the website. This cover is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rental cars in Charters Towers Airport include collision damage waiver in the price displayed, there's also usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card on collection. The insurance excess is the amount you'd be liable to pay if the vehicle is stolen, written off or severely damaged. The the excess on rental cars can be expensive. It's normally between £1,000 to £3,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the rental car, the excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money is not taken from your card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the car. You don't normally pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the vehicle is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, this excess amount is fully refunded to your credit card without anything further to pay.

If you plan to pay by debit card, the excess is taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the car is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess amount can be high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to buy top up cover at the rental desk.
