All listed cars have 'Third Party'
Insurance and CDW cover in case of an accident. However in the case of
damage you are responsible for an excess of Euro 800 - 3,000 and to cover this
they offer extra insurance, which can be expensive.
Alternatives are to drive with care and cover
the risk yourself, or it may be cost effective to purchase a separate
annual insurance policy with a company of your choice, e.g.
with AIG. With both of these alternative options the car hire
company will require your credit card numbers as surety in case of damage. This
credit card docket is normally returned
to you unprocessed when the vehicle is returned to them undamaged at the end of
the rental period.
