Terms explained

What is Liability?

Accident liability is the maximum dollar amount (cost) per accident the hirer is responsible for should there be an accident. This includes damage to the rental vehicle and any third party property. The Accident Liability that will apply can be reduced by selecting the Liability Reduction Option above.

What is the Debited Deposit?

The Liability Deposit is required as a deposit upon the collection of your vehicle. The Liability Deposit will be a full debit from the credit card supplied (all funds processed against your card). The dollar amount is determined by the Liability Reduction option selected as mentioned above.

Is the Debited Deposit refundable?

The Liability Deposit is fully refundable provided the vehicle is returned on time, to the correct location, undamaged. The credit card surcharge is also refunded provided the credit card used is Visa or MasterCard (non-refundable for American Express).

Daily Rate Maximum Charge

The maximum charge for any L​iability Reduction Option will be AU$2,400 for 2WDs and AU$2,650 for 4WDs.

From 1st April 2023, the maximum charge will increase to AU$2,650 for 2WDs (except the HiTop and Voyager which will remain the same) and AU$2,750 for 4WDs.

Credit cards

The Liability Deposit (plus any other credit card transactions) is subject to a 1.6% credit card surcharge for Visa and Mastercard and 2.8% for American Express in addition to the liability amount. This surcharge is refunded when the Liability Deposit is refunded for Visa and MasterCard holders. For American Express the surcharge is not refunded when the Liability Deposit is refunded. Only the Customer's credit card is acceptable to use for the purpose of the Liability Deposit. Don't forget to check that your credit card has the funds available and that the amount does not exceed your daily withdrawal allowance.
