This is perfect when you pay. This is terrible when you claim
It's easy and simple when you pay for the insurance. But when you want to make a claim, the admin work is complicated and time consuming.
They required lots of documents for just a small amount of claim like AUD200 and even asked for a phone interview. However, I have already been back to my hometown when they process my claim.
Economical Rental Car Excess Cover
I have used Tripcover regularly for about two years.
It easily beats the rates 'gouged' but rental car companies who have developed 'excess' and 'fee ' charges to an art form.
Tripcover is easy to transact online.
My only beef is that it doesn't retain my details for subsequent transactions meaning that I must re-enter them each time.
Simple, reliable, cheap
I would like Tripcover to retain my details for subsequent transactions.
This a great choice for car rental excess insurance. Much cheaper than through the rental company.We hired a camper van for a week and Tripcover saved us money on insurance. They also covered so much more than other insurance companies that I had been looking at. Didn't have to make a claim thank goodness but from what I've read on the reviews about their customer service I'm sure it wouldn't have been a problem. Will definately recommend and use Tripcover again.
The price and what they covered in their policy.
Good Savings With These Guys
These guy's are like other excess reduction companies, i.e RentalCover or 1Cover and save you money from purchasing additional rental insurance at the depot.
For $10 a day I was covered for $4,000 of excess which isn't expensive at all when you think about it. Better then paying twice the price at the Car Rental company!
Inexpensive and Good Savings
Website looks outdated and is cluttered
Car Hire Excess Insurance
I need to hire a car for 5 days in Melbourne. The cost of the hire car was OK but the insurance to lower or remove the excess more than doubled the cost of hiring the car.
I have found that Trip Cover Rental Excess Insurance will completely cover the cost of the excess for a fraction of the cost. There are two options - Nil excess or $300 excess and cover of $4000 or $6000 depending on your needs. I rang Tripcover to ask a few questions before taking out the policy on-line and they were very helpful. Phone was answered with only a short delay...
Brilliant I use this on every car rental
I am so pleased to have found Tripcover. The web site is quick and easy to use. I always have great savings compared to the rental companies. The confirmation email is prompt and queries answered quickly. The discount for club memberships is also a bonus. Thanks for making the excess on car rentals issue a non event.
Quick and Inexpensive
Questions & Answers
If the rental company policy I choose does not cover single vehicle accident/ roll over do you cover the cost of all repairs or only the excess coverage I choose through you?
Does Tripcover cover excess insurance for campervan rental companies such as Camplify, Camptoo etc. ie peer-to-peer platforms. Thanks
I am sorry Karen but we don't cover peer to peer rentals yet.
