Hi I am looking at hiring a Hyundai Getz from Ballina Airport or similar and am intersted to know more about insurance, how much it costs to insure per day

Hi, standard insurance is included in all of our rentals, however if you wanted to take up our Full Protection insruance (to protect your rental excess / deposit) you will be given the option to accept with or without Full Protection when proceeding to book. The daily rate varies on the duration of the rental, but is typically around $10 per day, however this is confirmed when you progress your quote.
