Types of insurance

There are three main types of insurance. They are usually included in the car rental price.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) – car insurance against body damage in an accident. Damage to windows, wheels or interior is not counted here. The principle of operation of this insurance is quite simple. For example, if you have an accident, you do not pay the entire amount of damage, but only the deductible. The deductible is a predetermined amount that you will pay in the event of an accident. For example, the amount of the franchise is 500 euros. If the damage is caused in the amount of 200 euros, then you pay 200 euros. If the damage is 1000 euros, then you pay 500 euros, the remaining amount is covered by the insurance company.

Third Liability Protection (TLP) is an insurance that allows you to cover damage to other people’s cars.

Theft Insurance (TI) or Theft Protection (TP) — this type of insurance is required in case of car theft.

When to return the car

It is better to return the car before the end of the lease. If you are at least an hour late with the delivery of the car, the car rental company may require an additional payment for the whole day. The car must be returned with a full tank, and then ask to remove the lock from the credit card.

When renting or returning a car, get ready for queues. And don’t forget:

  • – сheck everything carefully;
  • – take pictures of the car from all sides;
  • – check the odometer readings and the amount of fuel.

Renting a car is the best solution for traveling, especially if you are traveling with a family and a large company.
