Kango Cover's travel insurance covers for the rental excess (or the cost of repairing the rental vehicle if this is cheaper). This means if you hire a rental car and the vehicle is involved in an bingle, is damaged or gets stolen, Kango will cover you up to $4,000 for the excess that could be incurred in the event of an accident, whether it's your fault or not.
We also provide travellers the option to increase their excess for an additional premium, so you can choose to get cover for $5,000, $6000, $7000, or $8000 and ensure you don’t get stung by rental vehicle companies. This is particularly useful for larger vehicles, such as campervans. However, if your rental car is involved in an accident, is damaged or is stolen you could be liable to cover the cost of the rental car excess which can cost you thousands of dollars.
As well as being covered for your rental vehicle excess, you'll also enjoy a range of Kango Cover's travel insurance benefits, including medical, cancellation, baggage, travel expenses and more. Please note: benefits depend on your policy type.
We pride ourselves on providing quality, affordable cover for Aussie travellers.
With five levels of cover to choose from, you won't ever pay for more than you need.

I didn't have any problems at all with Kango Cover. They were supplied with the documents that were requested and they acted on the cover promptly and with no questions.
I would recommend them to everyone, no question.
