Driving tips for your car rental at Australia Macdonald Downs Airport

Before driving away spend some time to get used to the vehicle and its controls. This is especially important if you're used to driving a manual gearbox on the opposite side of the road.

if you're planning to take the car across a border into a different country, be careful to check the conditions of rental for cross border fees and to let the car rental company know. If you fail to do so there's the possibility that your insurance will be invalidated if you are involved in an accident or the car is stolen

Sometimes it's intimidating the first time you drive in a different country, just relax and you'll soon find yourself acclimatised to the differences. Have a great holiday

If you'd like to drop off the vehicle at a alternative place to the one you picked it up from, all extra one way fees will be already included in the price listed on the website.

it can be a good idea to have some loose change available in the car to pay for toll roads. most toll roads will accept credit cards but it's always safer to have some change as a backup

When driving on the opposite side than you're used to be cautious of roundabouts. Be sure to navigate traffic circles with an clockwise direction, giving way to vehicles currently on the traffic circle to the right.

When driving in a different country lots of countries have extremely strict restrictions concerning consuming alcohol when driving. To avoid any issues, we advise you not to consume any alcoholic drinks at all when driving your vehicle

Car Hire in Macdonald Downs Airport without an Excess Held on Your Card

Car Hire in Macdonald Downs Airport with zero Insurance Excess Held on Your Card

Your car will already be covered for accidents and theft included in the rental price you will see displayed on the website. This insurance is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rentals in Macdonald Downs Airport include CDW in the price , there's also often an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card on collection. The excess is the amount you'd be required to pay if the vehicle is stolen, written off or severely damaged. However, the excess on rental cars can be high. It's normally between £800 to £2,200. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll be required to pay some or all of the excess.

On collection of the car, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't taken from your card as a regular transaction, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You won't normally have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, the amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess is taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the car is dropped off. If you plan to use debit card on collection, as the excess can be high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up insurance at the collection desk.

Car rental insurance, excess and security deposits

We appreciate how daunting and frightening choosing a rental car insurance product can be. The additional fees that make up the price of hiring a car are often very confusing, these can include:

  • The cost of hiring the vehicle
  • Any extras (e.g. child car seats & sat nav)
  • Insurance costs

Stress Free Car Rental offers three options for car hire excess cover, premium, essential and basic and we help you find the hire car that suits you and your trip. You can view the details of these on the extras page of our website when booking your rental.

Many hire car websites hide the expensive insurance excess and security deposit costs in the terms and conditions. Customers are then surprised when the cash is taken from the debit card account or the amount is held on their credit card. We think this is unfair and can really obstruct your holiday plans which is why we work differently at Stress Free Car Rental.
