If there is an accident, does my car have CASCO and will my fees be deducted?
When taking the car, you will be asked for a deposit of 200 to 2400 EUR depending on the car class and choosed additional cover. The deposit is blocked on your credit / debit card. The amount for the deposit is not taken from the card, it is only blocked on it and after the end of the rent it is unblocked. In case of an accident, you must call the traffic police to write a report. The standard insurance (CDW) included in the rent, limits the liability in case of an accident to the amount of the blocked deposit in case if the Traffic Law is not violated and the accident is certified by document from Traffic police. This means that in case of damage to the car you may be charged a fee up to the amount of the deposit.
What if I burst a tire or twisted the rim during the rental?
Standard insurance (CDW) does not cover damage to tires, wheels, windshield, under the chassis and interior of the car. In this case, you may be charged a fee up to the amount of the deposit according to the damage.
