Theft Protection (TP)

Theft Protection is an optional service which, if accepted, reduces the customers financial liability for loss of, or damage to the Hertz vehicle, its parts and accessories, due to theft, attempted theft or vandalism, provided the vehicle is used in accordance with the terms and conditions of the rental agreement. The liability is limited to the non-waivable excess stated on the rental agreement.

It is possible to reduce the Own-Risk to zero when your customer accepts the Super Cover insurance. The Super Cover insurance will be explained in our Insurance E-Learning or article on Hertzipedia.

Please note! Theft Protection is included in both our rates, Hertz Business+ and Hertz Business Lite. Many of our other rates are inclusive of Theft Protection, but this is determined at the time of booking and may be displayed separately on your rental agreement/invoice. 

Does Theft Protection eliminates the excess liability (own risk)?

No, the liability is only reduced to a certain amount which varies per location, car type and rate.

Can you book Theft Protection insurance upfront?

Yes, and Theft Protection is included in Hertz Business+ and Hertz Business Lite rates.

How can I eliminate the excess liability?

By obtaining SuperCover insurance or choosing Hertz Business+ rate.
