Reducing your Damage Cover Liability (DCL)

Short answer:

You can reduce your Damage Cover Liability to $500 by switching to the Heavyweight plan or paying an extra fee to add premium cover for each trip. You can add premium cover when you book or any time before your trip starts. To add premium cover after you've booked your trip, select the relevant trip from the Trips page on the website (not app).

Switching to the Heavyweight plan

The Heavyweight borrowing plan features the lowest possible Damage Cover Liability of $500 for every trip and no bookings fees, for $19 a month. You can switch between the Heavyweight plan and free Featherweight plan at any time through the website.

Adding premium cover when you book

When booking a trip, you'll be given the option to add premium cover for an extra $1.50 an hour or $18 a day before you click 'Book now' or on the trip confirmation page.

Adding premium cover after you book

You can add premium cover any time before your trip starts through the website (not app). You can't add premium cover after your trip's start time.

  1. Log in and go to the Trips page
  2. Click 'Trip details' on the relevant upcoming trip
  3. Select to add premium cover and click 'Add cover'
  4. Your card will be charged and the premium cover added to your trip
