    Just wondered if anyone has as part of their credit card benefits, free insurance that covers car rental excess? I know it applies for international travel (as part of travel insurance) but what about if you wanted to rent a car in your home state or even another Australian state?

    I think in the fine print of the Amex Plat Charge it says > 250km from your permanent or temporary address - so that could be something to bear in mind (and check).

    Didn't realise the 250km clause til you pointed it out:
    As 99% of my car rental is interstate or overseas, I should be OK.

    I have two cards which cover car rental excess in Australia, with no minimum distance from home (I don't own a car, so often rent - in fact, I currently have a car and am relying on my card cover) - Westpac Platinum and ANZ with car rental excess cover. For full details on these, please have a look at my previous posts in the car rental threads (you may wish to use the search function), rather than me repeating it yet again.
