Don’t be fooled. Often hire car companies will state your excess and then have exclusions written in the fine print. There are some 4WD hire companies that don’t even allow vehicles on dirt roads.
What about this scenario? You might be driving along a bitumen country road and need to drive on an access road that is dirt so that you get a view from the lookout – is that access road classed as a dirt road? Could be? And worth asking the question. At Complete Ute and Van Hire, driving your 4WD on a dirt road is allowed.
