Rental Car Protection Plans | Budget Car Rental


When you're travelling, sometimes accidents happen and things may not go to plan. To ensure your journey is stress and worry free, choose one of our coverages for peace of mind. 

What is an excess? Excess is a specified amount that you are liable for (need to pay), should there be loss or damage to the vehicle you have rented.

When you rent with Budget, we have 3 different coverage options available.


All amounts are inclusive of admin fee, credit card surcharge and GST.

Please note: all coverage and protection options are subject to the Budget Terms & Conditions. Loss Damage Waiver (LDW), Excess Reduction (ER) and Zero Excess (ZE) do not cover certain types of loss or damage including overhead, underbody, and water damage.

Corporate customers: If you're on a contracted or corporate rate, your excess amounts may vary. Please refer to your agreement for full details.
