Enterprise Terms & Conditions - Summary of Key Points

Please note: for Enterprise New Zealand's full terms and conditions, a link will be provided upon booking submission.

Below is a summary of the most important information. If you have further questions, please contact our customer care team.

Rental Vehicle Excess

The excess can range between NZD $2,875 and NZD $3,450 depending on the vehicle type, and will be specified in the Rental Agreement you accept upon pick up.

The excess is the most you’ll pay towards repairs for damages to the vehicle’s bodywork, where the repairs are covered by the rental provider’s basic insurance. The basic insurance often doesn’t cover damage to other parts of the vehicle (overhead, underbody, interior, windows, wheels) or other charges (misfuelling, loss of use, key loss, towing, roadside assistance, child seats, GPS devices, personal belongings); you may be charged full costs for repair or replacement expenses that are not covered by the basic insurance.

Protection options to reduce or reimburse the rental vehicle excess are available. These options include third-party Rental Vehicle Excess insurance, and excess reduction waivers sold by the rental provider at the rental counter.

Credit Card Surcharge

0.80% (excluding GST) of the total transaction value will be charged to any card used for payment with Enterprise.

Excluding the security deposit, the credit card surcharge is applicable to all rental charges, including damage liability charges and any optional items purchased.

Security Deposit/Bond

A security deposit of NZD $200 will be requested by Enterprise (by way of pre-authorisation) upon collection of the rental vehicle.

A pre-authorisation is not a charge but will limit the funds available on the nominated credit card. If no charges are processed by Enterprise upon completion of the booking, pre-authorised funds will be released after a period of up to 28 days.
