We are thinking of hiring a 4 wheel drive camper whilst in Darwin so that we can see Kakadu, Katherine Gorge etc. Britz have some reasonable prices for vehicles but the insurance excess seems ridiculously high ($75 a day). If you do not take out excess cover then you need to make a credit card payment of $7500 to cover possible costs of an accident / recovery. Does anyone know whether travel insurance or own car insurance covers you for the use of hired vehicles? Any other ideas?
Also does anyone know any 'must see' areas in Darwin / surrounds?
