Can I cover damage to a rental car?

When you return your hire car, the hire company may discover material damage to the car you have hired. In this case, the hire company's insurance will cover the damage, with the exception of the franchise (which remains to be paid by the hirer).

Our annual VIP assistance includes a Car Damage Waiver (CDW). It reimburses the franchise that you owe or would have to pay in the event of damage to the rented vehicle (for example, following an accident).

Our insurance includes reimbursement up to a maximum of €2,000.
