Rental Car Insurance

We are hiring a car while in Niue later this year. Our accommodation provider said there is no insurance on Niue - just take out travel insurance. Our travel insurance only really covers rental car excess ($5000). Does anyone know what happens if you do happen to have an accident or damage the car whilst driving in Niue? What have other people done when hiring a car there? Thanks.

Hi. I hired through Niue rentals and they provided me with different insurance options for the car. I selected the higher no excess insurance but you probably won’t need that much. The only damage to car would be if you’re driving to fast and hit one of the many pot holes of stones coming up at the car! Have a great time!

Ok thanks. Sounds like all we need is our travel insurance. This will cover any excess.

Don’t forget to obtain your Niuean drivers licence. Obtain it from the police station your first full day on the island. There will be traffic stops on day three
