Where can I get cheap car hire insurance?

I am going to be spending a few weeks in Australia. The insurance company that have associated themselves with Budget Car Rentals wants an exorbitant £9/day to cover accident costs. In the UK I have a clean, no claims licence. How can I obtain a sensibly priced cover for the Australian car hire?
