Rental Car Insurance

Rental Car Insurance Policy

At Touchdown, rental car insurance is included with vehicle hire as standard, with a maximum excess of $3,500. This excess can be reduced by purchasing either of our excess reduction packages:

  • For $30 per day the maximum excess will be reduced to $500
  • For $45 per day the maximum excess will be reduced to $0

Both our excess reduction packages include complimentary windscreen and tyre damage repairs.

Touchdown Car Rentals takes no responsibility for damage caused to any equipment that is mounted to roof racks on our rental cars. It is the hirer’s responsibility to ensure skis and any other equipment are safe and secure.

We ask that you do not leave any of our convertible vehicles unattended in the Arthurs Pass National Park area. Keas (very clever, naughty alpine birds) will likely damage the soft top of the vehicle and this damage will not be covered by your rental car insurance.
