Excess Reduction | Budget Australia

In Australia, if your rental vehicle is involved in an accident, an insurance excess generally applies. Excess Reduction (ER) is an optional coverage that reduces your financial liability for an additional fee. The fee varies by age of renter, location, type of vehicle and rate.

If you are making a contracted corporate reservation using a Budget Customer Discount (BCD) or Budget Fastbreak number, please check your company's rates and insurance coverage as these amounts may differ.
