1.2 The Cheaper Car Rentals Terms and Conditions must be read and construed in their entirety with the Cheaper Car Rentals Agreement, the Cheaper Car Rentals Fees and Charges Schedule, the Fair Wear and Tear Guide and the Vehicle Report as well as any Letter of Authority in order to debit You by way of credit card (where required). Together these constitute the entire agreement between the Company and You on its subject matter (The ‘Cheaper Car Rentals Contract’). The Cheaper Car Rentals Contract supersedes all other provisions, terms, warranties, or conditions contained in any other contract, agreement, deed, brochure, promotion, website advertisement or any other document or instrument.

1.3 This document is governed by the laws of Queensland and Victoria, Australia. Any actions, claims or demands arising out of, or in respect of this document must be brought in the courts of Queensland and Victoria.


2.1 It is important that You return the Vehicle to the Return Location at or before the Return Time on the Return Date specified in the Cheaper Car Rentals Agreement unless the Company has agreed to an extension in writing before the Return Date. Where You voluntarily return the vehicle before the Return Date, you must provide the Company with at least one days’ notice.

2.2 If You return the Vehicle to another location, the Company can charge You for all costs associated with transporting or towing the Vehicle to the Return Location, unless otherwise agreed by the Company.

It is essential that You note all existing damage on the Vehicle Report. Any damage which has not been noted on the Vehicle Report will be considered damage which has occurred during Your rental, for which the Company can charge You. Where Cheaper Car Rentals deems it necessary, the We- capture application may be used to capture vehicle condition electronically in addition to, or in place of, the paper-based Vehicle Report.

3.3 You agree to return the Vehicle in the same condition, except for any normal fair wear and tear, together with its tools, tyres, accessories and equipment at the Return Location on the Return Date specified in the Cheaper Car Rentals Agreement (or sooner, if demanded by the Company).

There is a certain level of damage to a vehicle which is considered fair wear and tear due to ongoing use. This is treated differently to damage that is caused by a customer, which they will be held responsible for. The distinction between fair wear and tear and unacceptable damage is outlined in the Cheaper Car Rentals Fair Wear and Tear guidelines set out below.

Damage caused intentionally or by gross negligence is not considered fair wear and tear and is excluded from your damage cover. You should always refer to the Terms and Conditions of Rental for a full understanding of the exclusions that apply. We have a range of coverage options available for those who wish to reduce their excess in the event of an accident or damage to their vehicle.

How do we assess when damage has occurred? Prior to an CCR vehicle being rented, any damage, including for fair wear and tear is identified and recorded. CCR records this damage via time stamped photographs and Video when the vehicle is prepared for rental. If you detect any damage and it has not been recorded, you should notify a staff member of the damage prior to leaving the rental branch.
