Compulsory motor insurance requires the payment of a guarantee for any damage caused to the vehicle and any injuries suffered by the occupants of the vehicle. The amount of the guarantee is temporarily withheld on the credit card or temporarily charged from the debit card, and this varies depending on the category of rental vehicle.

In case the customer chooses the Supplementary Premium Package, the guarantee amount will not be blocked or will be temporarily charged on the payment card.

The Premium Packet can be selected in specific categories of cars when the online booking is made or upon receipt of the car, as desired by the Customer.

The maximum additional amount that the Customer will be charged for an accident if the vehicle is used correctly is the maximum additional amount for each vehicle category.

Customers receiving the Premium Packet are not required to provide a surplus guarantee and if there is an event, they cannot be held liable unless it is assumed that the use of the vehicle was not approved as stipulated in the rental agreement. Customers who do not wish to receive this additional coverage must pay a deposit equal to the value of the exemption as defined in this article.

In case the customer chooses the additional Premium package, the amount of the guarantee is reduced to "zero" euros (€0) in case of damage to the vehicle body. In addition, the purchase of the Premium Packet can be made when the customer chooses, either at the time of online booking or at the time of receipt of the vehicle.

In addition to the above, receiving the additional Premium Packet coverage leads to a reduction of the guarantee - which the customer must pay - to 100 euros covering the fuel deposit (it could be in cash).

Similarly, by selecting the Premium Packet, the costs associated with the loss of revenue due to the immobilization of the vehicle in the event of an accident will not apply.

In all other cases, the terms of the basic insurance remain unchanged.
