Tripcover Product Review by Jun L
After wrongly accused of causing damages on a car I’ve rented which the damages are there to begin with, the car rental company had charged AUD 1k worth of repair costs. It was a stressful situation to be in where the rental company doesn’t respond in an appropriate manner and take accountability of solving the dispute.
Tripcover provided excellent customer service and my insurance claim was settled within their specified assessment days. Tripcover has made an otherwise stressful situation, hopeful. I would recommend Tripcover to anyone who is looking for insurance cover on car rentals and not pay the high excess charge offered by rental companies”.

Europcar on Product Review by Jun L
Car rental scam charging $1000 for damages
In short, I was accused of causing damages to the vehicle, rear bumper, windshield, dents in the car when returning the car at Melbourne airport. The car was given with damages in on the day of rental itself but the staff over at St Kilda office failed to note them down in the rental agreement even though they have, in person, came and look at the the car with me. Fortunately, I have snapped photos with a time stamp to capture this. Unfortunately though, when the photos were sent to Europcar as part of the dispute settlement, they do not own up to it by not responding.
Horrible service and unethical practices. Do not use this SCAM of a car rental company”.
