* Optional additional cover products apply only one Vehicle Damage Cover (CDW) and Vehicle Theft Cover (TP) are included in the quoted rate and/or purchased at the counter. Please read the following information carefully in order to be fully informed.

Declining Vehicle Damage Cover (CDW) / Vehicle Theft Cover (TP) - (also encompasses certain rates quoted without the automatic inclusion of CDW and TP). 

CDW and TP reduce your financial liability for damage to or theft of the vehicle. By declining these insurances you are taking responsibility to arrange your own cover and assume full financial liability up to the value of the vehicle for losses arising as a result of loss of or damage to the vehicle.

We recommend that you fully understand the conditions of cover provided by your credit card company when using your card for insurance cover. If you have your own insurance cover, you must produce a copy of your motor insurance policy at the time of rental.

If you decide not to purchase CDW and TP you will be required to pay a liability deposit of EUR €3,000 at the start of your rental using your credit card. An administration fee of EUR €30.00 applies for use of this service.
