To help make your journey easier and for peace of mind, we’ve included basic protection with every Ezi Car Rental booking you make. This basic protection package covers you for any damage to or loss of the vehicle during your rental with an excess payable at the conclusion of your rental.
For increased protection, Ezi offers two additional levels of cover:
In New Zealand there is no such thing as compulsory cover (even third party) so you can lose money as a result of someone else’s poor driving.
We do not offer insurance for personal loss, ie. theft of personal items or personal injury. In New Zealand treatment for personal injury is covered by the Government’s Accident Compensation scheme.
Glass damage including stone chips is already included in our Ezi Premium cover option.
Driver must be over 20 to book a car with us. Please remember that all drivers must have a current full driver licence at all times. If your licence is not in English, you must carry an official English translation or International Driver Permit (IDP) together with your original licence.
If you have already purchased your own travel insurance covering rental car hire, we recommend that you check your travel insurance policy carefully.
Some insurers require you to take the excess reduction (“Reduced liability” above) and some policies may not cover you if you drive your rental car on unsealed roads.
In the event of damage to your rental car we will charge your credit card with the applicable excess for your hire, and you would then need to lodge a claim with your travel insurer to claim the excess back on your return home.
The same applies if you have purchased travel insurance from your travel agent.
The applicable excess on your hire with us will be charged, and you would need to claim this charge back from your agent’s travel insurance provider on your return home.
Yes there are times when you won’t be covered by our insurance. They include:
If you choose to tow any item using the Toyota Hilux with towbar, please note in case of an incident/accident, you are liable for any damage occurring to your trailer and load.
This information should be used as a guide only. You will be required to sign a car rental agreement when you collect your rental vehicle.
Insurance excess applies with standard cover as follows.
*or vehicles in the same category
You can opt to waive or reduce your cover excess on your hire by purchasing our additional Ezi Plus or Ezi Premium cover with your car hire. Our Ezi Premium option includes glass cover so you will be covered in the event of a stone chip or glass damage during your hire as well as accident damage to the vehicle. Ezi Plus and Ezi Premium daily rates start from just NZ$18 per day and reduce your liability for the vehicle during the hire down to either a zero excess with Ezi Premium or a substantially reduced excess with Ezi Plus.
Our prices are shown as additional options in all rental vehicle quotations we provide.
You can add your preferred coverage directly when making an online booking, or contact us or even enquire at our branches when picking up your rental car.
Yes; we will put a pre-authorisation for security for the excess amount during your hire. This will be removed at the completion of your rental.
Yes, we take a NZD$400 security pre-authorisation for any incidentals during your rentals at the beginning at your rental.
It can take up to 7 working days for your bank to operate the release. Please note this is a hold on a credit card meaning it doesn't show as a transaction on your statement.
All very easy. Rates were very good, we got a very good deal on the model we chose. Car was in excellent condition, easy to find in the carpark and to return. Only comment, the deals can disappear and the prices change between visits to their website (even in half an hour) which is annoying so if a deal comes up take it or it might disappear. Would happily rent from them again.Brad Mercer
