We offer our customers the opportunity to purchase additional coverage to the car rental and to ensure greater peace of mind. Customers can choose one of the following options:
- Tire & Glass Cover (T&G) - releases the Lessee from liability for damage to tires, wheels, rims and windows, upon return of all documents and car keys
- TOP PROTECTION - includes T&G and also releases the Lessee from liability for damage to the exterior of the car, which is certified by a document of the Traffic Police, Police or other competent authority
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 150 to 2000 EUR depending on the car class. 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. This means that in case of damage to the car you may be charged a fee up to the amount of the deposit. The fee covers damage to the repair and losses of the company from missed rents during the repair.
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. You are completely free from liability when purchasing additional TOP PROTECTION coverage.
Why pay extra for extra coverage?
The cover, which is additionally purchased when renting a car, can completely release you from liability in case of an accident on your own or someone else's fault. It is mandatory to have a traffic police report or other document certifying the event and to contact us. The price of TOP PROTECTION is between 8 and 30 € / day, depending on the car class and guarantees you peace of mind during the entire rental.
What are the conditions for parking damage?
Parking damage is the most common type of damage. If you have additional TOP PROTECTION coverage, you will not be charged for the damage. You need to call us to inform us about the case and contact the traffic police, who will assist you in filling out a report on the incident.
You can choose additional coverage during the online booking or at the Top Rent A Car office when you pick up your booked car.
