To be covered in case of damage, you need a liability insurance for your hired car. All offers on Driveboo already include the insurance automatically, because it is so important. A sum insured of at least one million euros is sensible. Whether your hired car fulfills this, you can take from the rental conditions. In many cases, additional insurance such as key replacement or theft protection insurance are worthwhile. If you plan to drive outside the city on unpaved roads or through off-road terrain, you should also take out insurance for damage to glass, tyres, roof and underbody. Use our filter function to find numerous offers that already include the insurance you want. It is best to decide on all the necessary insurances when booking before departure, so that you do not have to take out any unnecessary or overpriced insurances when hiring a car on the spot.
To ensure that you are optimally protected against financial risks, we recommend full coverage without deductible. The insurance protects you in the event of damage, so you do not have to pay anything extra. If damage actually occurs to the vehicle, for example a scratch, the car hire company will deduct the amount for this from your deposit. Submit the invoice and the damage report to the agent of your car. You can find the deadlines for this in the rental contract. If you have taken out comprehensive insurance without excess, the broker will reimburse you afterwards. On our portal, it is best to look for offers that already include fully comprehensive insurance without deductible.
A security deposit is a sign that a landlord is reputable, because the money deposited serves as security for him. You will be refunded the amount paid if you return the hired car without damage. In most cases, your credit card will be charged with the respective amount. Some providers allow alternatively a cash payment. Each rental company determines the amount of the deposit itself, which is why it varies from provider to provider. The conditions are best taken from the rental conditions of the respective car.
If you are not alone at the wheel of your hired car, but would like to take turns with your companion, you can register the other person as an additional driver. The registration is necessary so that the insurance coverage applies to all drivers. The additional driver must present his ID card and driver's license to the car hire company in the same way as the driver. After that you can drive off. Whether the respective rental company charges a fee for the additional driver or not, you can find out via our price comparison. In addition, you will find favorable offers for a suitable car with all desired services. You have further questions around your hired car in Puerto del Carmen?
