Identification and Security Deposit

In most circumstances Camera Hire does not require a security deposit providing appropriate photo identification is provided by the hirer. Our insurance requires 100 points of identification for coverage. This should include at minimum a scan (or photo) of your Passport, Australian Photo ID and credit card (feel free to block out some of the digits in the photo for security). See for details.


Camera Hire offers insurance on all hired equipment for an additional 9% of the hire fee. This covers accidental loss and damage, theft, and covers equipment while in transit within Australia. Please contact us if you require cover while overseas. See our terms and conditions page for details on insurance cover.
