Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Protection (CDWTP) reduces the liability of the renter in the event of damage to the bodywork, theft, or attempted theft of the rental vehicle. If CDWTP is not included in the reservation, the renter has liability up to the full market value of the vehicle. If not included in the reservation, CDWTP is an optional coverage available for purchase. CDWTP does not cover damage to the tires or windshield of the vehicle. You must adhere to all rental terms and conditions to receive the benefits of CDWTP.

If included in the reservation, the excess amount ranges between 2000 EUR and 4000 EUR depending on car class. Excess will be charged every time a vehicle is damaged.
Before purchasing CDW, it is advised to determine if a personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If CDW is declined, the renter will be required to pay these charges and seek compensation through their carrier of personal coverage. CDW is not insurance.

Excess Protection (EP) is an optional coverage available for selection by the renter. EP is only available to purchase if Collison Damage Waiver and Theft Protection(CDWTP) is selected or included in the reservation. The purchase of EP reduces the customer’s liability to between 1000-2000 EUR in cases of damage to the bodywork, theft, or attempted theft of the rental vehicle. EP does not cover damage to the tires or windshield of the vehicle. You must adhere to all rental terms and conditions to receive the benefits of EP.

Before purchasing EP, it is advised to determine if a personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If EP is declined, the renter will be required to pay these charges up to the Damage Waiver excess amount and seek compensation through their carrier of personal coverage. EP is not insurance.

Refueling Service: All vehicles are rented with a full tank and the vehicle must be returned with the same level of fuel as at the start of the rental period.

Fuel Purchase Option: For your convenience, you may purchase a tank of fuel at the time of rental at a price that is competitive with local fuel stations. Please note that the price is depending on the vehicles tank size. This method eliminates the need for you to refill the tank before returning. Please be aware that we are unable to give a refund for unused fuel. Please check availability before the rental period at the rental branch or at the latest at the counter when you pick-up the rental car.
