How does deductible in case of damage work?
Our vehicles are insured for the tourist trips with a liability insurance without additional casco. The deductible in case of damage depends on the vehicle and can be found in our terms and conditions. Damages up to these specified deductibles must be paid by the renter. Above this amount we take over the risk. Route damages, damages of third parties and towing costs remain unaffected by this and must be paid separately by the responsible party. For tourist trips, the same applies as in normal road traffic. The causer is responsible for the damage occurred. This includes the rented vehicle, if necessary the vehicle of a third party and also the damage to the route or the towing costs. In such a case, the renter is responsible for finding the causer of the damage. In case of doubt, the renter is responsible for the damage.

Your excess in the case of damage depends on the vehicle and can be read in our General Terms and Conditions. Damages up to these specified excess amounts are to be paid by you as the renter. Above this amount, we assume the risk. Damage to the route, damage to third parties and towing costs remain unaffected by this and are to be paid separately by the person causing the damage.

In such a case, you as the renter are responsible for finding the culprit. In case of doubt, the renter must otherwise be held responsible for the damage.
