Some outlets have a surcharge for drivers between 21 and 24 years old, but other companies may not apply any extra fees for this age bracket. Ensure you understand the terms and conditions of your prospective car company to escape excessive charges on pickup.
What insurance should I choose for my car rental in Canberra?
A comprehensive insurance plan is a good idea for your Canberra trip. That’s why we recommend opting in to collision protection while reserving your car rental with Expedia. This covers your vehicle from theft, vandalism and collision damage. Some destinations may also require a minimum level of liability insurance. This might be included in your rental cost or your own auto insurance, so check what you’re covered for and if you need it.
