Terms and Conditions
Rental vehicle and third party insurance is included in our rates and is subject to a deductible (Excess) of NZ$2000.00.
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)
The hirer may choose to waive the insurance deductible by payment of an optional Collision Damage Waiver of $15.00 per day ($18.00 for MPV, SUV, Family SUV, Premium SUV, 4WD SportsWagon and Premium Elite). This applies to minimum four day hire period.
Credit Cards, Debit Cards and Bonds
Credit card details are required to secure a booking, but no charge is made until you uplift your rental vehicle (a $1 pre-auth shows on the card at the time of booking and is returned within 7 days). Payment is taken in full upon collection. Note: In all cases the credit card holder must be present upon the collection of the vehicle, be included on and sign the Rental Agreement. Alternately a cash bond of $2000.00 is required.
A Debit Card (such as Visa Debit, Debit Mastercard or Prepaid Travel Card) is accepted as security when hiring a vehicle, however a bond is required to be charged to the card (or paid in cash) and this will be refunded upon safe return of the vehicle. The bond is $400 where the hirer has taken Omega’s Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or $2000 ($2500 for 18-20 year olds) if CDW is declined.
New Zealand law requires that all drivers be 18 years old or over and produce a valid New Zealand, International or overseas licence. We accept US, Australian, Canadian, English and European Licences. Note that to hire a specialty vehicle (MPV, Family SUV, SUV, Premium SUV, 4WD SportsWagon and Premium Elite) a full drivers licence is required, ie. a provisional or restricted licence is not accepted.
Goods and Services Tax (GST)
Our rates include 15% GST
Our rates include unlimited kilometres (mileage).
