Please PERUSE the following carefully with respect to the basic Rental Guidelines of Surfers Paradise Car Hire.


Subject to the terms and conditions of the Rental Agreement, Damage Liabilities apply to all rentals and includes the following hereunder:


There is an automatic Damage Liability of between $ 3,000 and $ 2,200.00 for Drivers Aged 25 to 69 Years of Age. Optional Liability Reduction Premium (LRP) is available to reduce multi-vehicle Damage Liability to a nominal $ 385.00. As is the Policy of all Rental Companies, the Liability chosen by the Hirer at the commencement of the Car Hire will be held until such time as safe return of the vehicle and/or until such time until the Owner and the Company are indemnified in full.


Surfers Paradise Car Hire does not offer any so-called optional “PREMIUM REDUCTION PACKAGE” as a supplement to the standard LRP at any additional cost to reduce hirers’ liability.
