Do I Need to Purchase Excess Reduction For My Campervan in New Zealand?
Most campervan rental companies include basic insurance for their vehicles in the listed rates. An excess amount will still apply, for which the customer is liable to pay if any damage is caused to the vehicle while it is in their possession. To reduce your financial liability when you hire a campervan, you will have a couple of options.
Purchase protection products from the campervan rental company
Campervan rental companies offer their own protection products for their vehicles. By purchasing these, customers can reduce their financial liability. In some cases, if a customer has not purchased any insurance the security bond amount may be a higher amount.
Purchase third-party protection products
Some third parties also offer insurance which includes coverage for your vehicle. If you are relying on your existing travel insurance policy, keep in mind that you will need to check the terms and conditions to see if your coverage extends to campervans.
