Makes hiring a car affordable.

published

I've used this insurance several times before to hire vehicles in Australia. It costs about $8 per day and covers windscreen damage etc which gives me peace of mind. The only problem is I needed $5000 excess but the only options were $4000 or $6000.

Yes correct Sciger, which means you could take out the $4000 cover and carry the $1000 liability or the more expensive $6000 and be over insured. Thanks very much for the review and your feedback and will be taken on board, and passed on to Allianz.

Yes, I took out the $4000 cover so will risk the $1000 liability in the event something were to happen. Beats the rental company's insurance.

Excellent option to insure your excess

published

I only discovered this option of insurance recently on the internet. Easy to use and get the cover. As far as the convenience of been insured this works well. I haven't had a claim to see how that works !!George

Great service

Like the idea of actually getting car rental cover without the rental company taking a cut..got covered for a lot less than what the rental company wanted. But no claims made.

Amazing price for cover

published

Cannot believe how much cheaper than anywhere else I looked Tripcover was. Hopefully I don't have to make a claim but at least I can relax and enjoy my trip without worrying about a huge excess if anything does happen. Very satisfied with their service. Yvonne

CHEAPER than cover offered by car companies!

published

Cheaper than cover rental cars offered . The rental car people use it themselves. Never claimed so can't comment on claims, which is why I only put 4 stars. Would be good to hear from someone who has claimed....

Great price - easy to use.

I've bought this insurance before but thankfully have never had to use it. Website is easy to use and prices are good value. Only complaint is that my Qantas FF number kept getting rejected so i booked without getting the discount.

Hi Karen, Thanks for the feedback.
What format did you put the number in? It should only be 7 digits and no QF.
let me know if that was the problem

Claytons PROMO

Missed out on the under 15 days promo code discount by 9 hours.You would expect the discount would reward those repeat customers who paid more.But still half the price of most rental companies cover.

I was a bit confused who I was dealing with during the claims process, so thanks for clarifying that it was Allianz rather than Tripcover.

Tripcover
Desmond S.Tripcover

Granted but still Tripcover shares the responsibility of our customers so I think we will try do a bit more to help Allianz out with any improvements and your feedback is invaluable for that, thanks again.

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?
