8. Insurance

8.1 Our insurance
  • KINTO has insurance which covers KINTO Vehicles in your possession.  This protects you from accidental loss or damage to the KINTO Vehicle and it also covers your legal liability to pay compensation for loss or damage to someone else’s property caused by an accident involving the KINTO Vehicle subject to the terms of this Agreement.  Nothing in this clause prevents us or our insurers from seeking money from you as a result of your breach of this Agreement.

  • In the event that a claim needs to be made against our insurance policy, KINTO is liable to pay the Insurance Excess to the insurer. You agree to reimburse us this cost when we make a claim under our insurance policy.

  • You may reduce your liability to reimburse us for the Insurance Excess each time you make a Booking by selecting the Insurance Excess reduction option as an Extra through the KINTO App.  In this instance, you will then only be liable to reimburse us for the amount of the Reduced Insurance Excess. The Insurance Excess reduction fee is payable on each Booking where you wish to reduce your liability to reimburse us for the Insurance Excess and the Reduced Insurance Excess only applies to you.  If you are not the person operating the Vehicle at the time of an accident, the Reduced Insurance Excess will not apply and you must reimburse us for the full amount of the Insurance Excess.

  • The amount of the Insurance Excess and the Reduced Insurance Excess will be provided on www.kinto.com.au and may be amended by us from time to time in its sole discretion.

  • Should we increase the amount of the Insurance Excess or the Reduced Insurance Excess, we will give Members at least 1 months’ notice of such amendment.  

  • In the event that KINTO elects to repair the Vehicle instead of lodging a claim against our insurance policy, you agree that you will be responsible for paying the lesser of the amount of Insurance Excess or Reduced Insurance Excess (if selected by you at the time of Booking) and the amount of the cost of repair.

  • You acknowledge that KINTO’s insurance will only provide cover for you for any loss or damage if you are a Member, you are operating the KINTO Vehicle yourself, and you are not in breach of this Agreement.

8.2 Claims
  • If there is an accident or damage to the Vehicle, or if the Vehicle is lost or stolen, an amount equal to the Insurance Excess, or the Reduced Insurance Excess where applicable, will be debited from the Payment Card stored on file, upon your reporting or KINTO identifying any damage to the Vehicle or report the Vehicle missing.

  • If it is determined that you are not at fault (and not in breach of this Agreement) and we are able to recover the full amount of the claim from a third party, then we will refund the amount debited under clause 8.2(a) within 2 business days of the claim being settled.

  • If it is determined that you are partially or wholly at fault, we will refund the amount (if any) calculated as the amount debited under clause 8.2(a) less all charges associated with the repair of the Vehicle and a claims management fee.

  • You agree that you must obtain the contact details of the person who caused the accident including their name, telephone number, current residential address, driver’s licence, vehicle registration and their insurance details.  You agree that you must provide us with honest, correct and complete information of an accident in a timely manner and assist us in every way in connection with any claim or legal action relating to the incident including immediately referring any communication from other parties to us so that we can respond on your behalf.

  • If you are involved in an accident or event relating to a claim, you must not:

    • arrange or authorise any repairs to the insured Vehicle;

    • admit liability or guilt;

    • make a promise or offer to settle or partly settle the matter or defend the matter; or

    • assign your rights in any insurance claim to a third party.

  • Your liability for any accident loss or damage will be limited to your obligation to reimburse us the amount of the Insurance Excess or if applicable the amount of the Reduced Insurance Excess, unless the Vehicle was:

    • in an unsafe or unroadworthy condition caused by you, or was carrying passengers or a load (including towing) in excess of that recommended by the Vehicle manufacturer, and this contributed to the loss or damage;

    • being hired out or used for fare or reward (including driving school instruction);

    • altered by modifications from the original manufacturer’s specifications by you;

    • being used or prepared for use in any form of motor sport or contest, experiments, tests, trials or demonstration purposes;

    • being used for any unlawful purpose, including the carrying of hazardous or inflammable goods in excess of that permitted by government regulation, unless you can prove that such use was without your knowledge or consent;

    • improperly or incorrectly fitted by you with any modification or accessory and this contributed to the loss or damage;

    • being driven by any person who was not a KINTO Member

    • being driven by a driver, who was not licensed to drive the Vehicle;

    • being driven by a driver under the influence of alcohol or with illicit drugs present or driven by a driver who had a blood alcohol level in excess of the limit permitted by law in the state or territory where the loss or damage occurred or being driven by a driver who refused to take a test to determine the level of alcohol or presence of drugs;

    • being driven by a driver after receiving advice from a medical practitioner not to drive, or whilst under the influence of prescribed medications that impair the ability to drive;

    • damaged as a result of you or any other person continuing to drive the insured vehicle in a damaged state.

  • You agree that, if you are in breach of clause 2.1(b)(i) - (ii), (iv) - (vii), 7.1, 7.2, 8.2(d), 8.2(e) or 8.2(f), you will not be covered by our insurance policy and you will be liable for all liability, loss, damages, costs and expenses (including legal fees) incurred in connection with your use, possession or control of the Vehicle. This includes, but is not limited to, the cost of repair or replacement of the Vehicle, the repair or replacement cost of third party property and costs associated with injury to persons.

  • KINTO is not responsible to you or any third party for loss or damage to property left in the Vehicle. You are not covered by our insurance for theft or loss of property from the Vehicle.

  • You agree that both ourselves and our insurer reserve the right to recover any monies paid and may need to take action in your name and therefore you must co-operate with us and our insurer and give any information and assistance through to the completion of any action undertaken in your name.
