INSURANCE AND DEPOSIT POLICIES
The information about cost and insurance is based on our primary rent a car supplier, Rent a Car; however, this may change if the car booked is from a different company. Any change will be notified at the time of the booking confirmation.

It is mandatory for all car rentals.
1. Liability waiver for the damages caused to the vehicle during a collision (CDW)

4. Insurance for injuries or death.
A deductible of $950.00 - $1250.00 according the veichule, applies for the CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) and car theft. 20% deductible applies for damages to third parties and no deductible in case of injuries or death.
B. Non Deductible Coverage Package
It is similar to the Basic Package but reduces the deductible of the CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) to $300.00. The main object of this option is to offer a service in preventing our customers from being exposed to non-foreseen expenses.

1. When the driver, under the effects of alcohol or drugs, provokes a collision and damages to the vehicle.
