Insurance Reduction OptionsHere at James Blond all of our rental vehicles are fully insured whilst the named drivers on the contract are driving the vehicle. With our standard excess of $2000 to apply in all cases, unless you have chosen one of the reduction options shown below. You are not covered for any accident or incident if you are not named on the contract and our insurance company will hold the named driver responsible for any damage caused. There is no additional cost to add other drivers to the contract.
Like all car insurance policies you must obey the road rules and will invalidate your insurance cover if you are driving under the influence of drink or drugs or are driving in a reckless manner.
You should also note that if you have rented one of our larger vehicles like the 12 seat vans or a truck that these are restricted by height and they will not fit any underground car park. Any damage caused above the top of the windscreen will be the sole responsibility of the renter.

Licence Requirements, you must present your valid drivers licence upon collection of the vehicle, you should check before coming in that it has not expired and is valid for the type of vehicle you require if you are renting one of our trucks. We will accept a NZ restricted licence as long as our vehicle is driven within the terms and conditions of that licence. We do not accept learners licences under any circumstances including those looking to sit a class 2 licence test.
If you are driving on an overseas licence that is not in English you must have either a certified translation or recognised International Licence to accompany your licence.
