Choose to add a hire car as an optional extra

You can choose to add optional hire car cover to your RAA Comprehensive Car Insurance and Hard to Place Car Insurance policies, which will give you some extra benefits. 

Crash repairer's loan car

If your vehicle is being repaired following a crash, we can cover the cost of getting a loan car from the repairer. You’ll be covered for up to $30 a day for up to 14 days, or until the repairs have been completed – whichever occurs first.

Crash repairer's loan car – comprehensive cover

If the loan car from the repairer doesn't have comprehensive insurance, we’ll cover both your vehicle and the loan vehicle until the repairs have been completed.

Hire car following an accident

If you can't get a loan car, we’ll cover the costs for you to get a hire car. You’ll be covered for up to $65 a day for up to 14 days, or until the repairs have been completed – whichever occurs first.  

Hire car excess

If you hire a vehicle anywhere in Australia and it’s damaged or stolen, we’ll cover the excess up to $4000. This can save you having to pay the hire car company additional daily charges to reduce the excess.

Extended hire car following theft

With a standard Comprehensive Car Insurance policy from RAA, we’ll cover the cost of hiring a similar replacement vehicle for up to 21 days following theft. If you add optional hire car cover to your comprehensive policy, we’ll extend this benefit by up to 14 extra days. A $65 daily cap applies.
