INSURANCE
You have all the usual insurance coverage like CDW (collision damage waiver), TW (theft waiver), Personal Insurance, Bail Bond etc. The difference is that there is no excess so nothing to pay in the event of an accident! Our insurance is simply zero-deductable. You have no responsability in the event of damage caused by accident and reported to the police!
You will be asked to pay by credit card on arrival as a security measure against vehicle theft but in the event of an accident this is not deductable for bodywork damage.

FUEL
The fuel used during the rental is not included in our rates.
On collection, the car will be delivered with a certain amount of fuel in the tank. We just ask you to return the car with the same amount of fuel.

LOST CAR KEYS

Car keys are "chip-coded" affairs these days and are both timely and costly to replace. If you hapen to lose your car key we will charge you EUR 200,00 to replace it + any transport costs associated in connecting you and the new key. You may opt to replace the key personally at the manufacturers rates locally if you prefer to do so. Please take good care of the key!

TYRES & GLASSES
customers are responsible for damage to the cars tyres and glass, if not caused by accident, during the hire period. Please don't park up the vehicle with personal objects inside which is simply too darned attractive to thiefs.
