    The excess is $2000 NZD excess but I got a policy from worldwide insure that covers cars up to 20 years old. I believe that the car is likely to be around 2014 as I emailed the company to check so it will be fine. I checked all the policies on the comparison site on MSE which was recommended and had to search through all the fine print and this was the only one that covered cars older than 10 years so it's worth checking carefully.

    I'm sure you mean 2004.

    I noticed a lot of those old cars for hire on comparison websites, but we got a good deal with Hertz for a new Rav4 at the time. 25% off, discount code and Quidco. Perhaps around 30 per day.
