I just notice that they required a credit card with my name same as my driving license.

All my cards name are not my driving license name.

Do you think they will accept?

book direct from hertz? or through 3rd party like vroomvroom, airport rental..

quite confusing, esp on the excess reduction.

Hi

Need help on rental car insurance/coverage.

I checked on ACE Car rental and for the vehicle which I intend to rent, they charge "accidental damage reduction coverage upto A$800. I also purchase travel insurance and they have a 'rental vehicle excess cover of S$1,500.

Can i check if this is sufficient and if i still to get additional insurance coverage? Sorry for this noob question!

No,they only charge a holding amount of 200 aud to my card..upon car return,can pay exact full amount in cash and they reverse the cc charges immediately

The quotation which I got from vroom for hertz cars are cheaper than hertz website. Never booked from vroom b4, are the price quoted accurate? It already included the fees below except for excess reduction.

So that was on thing I was thinking about when I recently booked a car in Aus as well - my travel insurance has a coverage of SGD1000, excess on car insurance without buying the zero excess is AUD1000, just nice, no?

I learnt:-

- without the zero excess insurance by the car company, in case of any accident you pay the first 1k, then claim from the insurance company, i.e., you can get rejected by my insurer.

- in my case, when i went to the rental company, i found out that it was AUD1000 excess per incident. On my travel insurance it was a cumulative sum.

- i was returning my car at night, and one of the clauses with my renter was that if you get into an accident at night and you don't have the zero excess insurance you'd have to wait for it to be assessed first, that is, in the morning.

I also was suay enough to get hit by a flying stone and had a small chip/ deep scratch on the windscreen quite early into my trip heh.:s13:

Hi Cokiee

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

The cumulative sum part, i had guessed just as well but the many chances of 'minor accidents' while on the road...that one is a good reminder. i was more worried about wild animals but flying stones... okie, will really have to take note of.

i guess i would have to get the zero excess coverage as well. any suggestion which other insurer to get from? might not want to get from the car rental company.
