Hiring a Car in Karumba with zero Excess

The hire car will be fully covered for theft and accidents as part of the hire price you'll see displayed on the website. This type of insurance is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

Although all of our rental cars in Karumba come with collision damage waiver in the price , there is also usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when you collect the car. The excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess on rental cars can be high. It's normally between £800 to £2,100. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the hire car, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the amount isn't charged to your card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the car. You don't normally pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the rental car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

If you plan to pay by debit card, the insurance excess will be taken from your account and refunded when the car is dropped off. If you intend to use debit card on collection, as the excess amount can be very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up insurance at the rental desk.
