Deductible / Excess

QUEST RENTALS offers already a Collision Damage Waiver( CDW) including an excess/ deductible included in the rental rate.

The CDW limits the driver’s liability up to a certain amount (EXCESS/ DEDUCTIBLE) in case of damage to the rental vehicle or theft of the whole vehicle. When the rental vehicle is returned in the same condition as picked up, the deposit will be released/ refunded to the driver’s credit card.

Example: When booking a car the Excess/Deductible amount is 500 EUR. Upon collection the main driver has to leave a deposit (in this case 500 EUR) with his/her credit card or cash. If in case of accidental damage or theft, an amount up to 500 EUR will be charged, the rest will be covered from the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

The amount of Excess/Deductible depends on the car category, clarified in below listing.

Does QUEST RENTALS offer an insurance to cover the excess / deductible?

Yes, upon the booking procedure we offer extra optional insurances on fair rates

F.D.W. – to eliminate the Excess/Deductible amount to Zero (0)  in case of damage or lost to the vehicle

T.W.U. – to eliminate the Excess/Deductible amount to Zero (0) in case of damage to tires / wheels / undercarriage

F.D.W. – Additional Damage & Theft Excess Protection

The F.D.W. (full damage waiver), waves the responsibility of renter to an amount of Zero (0) 0f the Collision Damage Waiver, except its exclusions.

The common exclusions are drinking and driving, gross negligence for example fuel error, incorrect use of the handbrake, improper use of clutch, gearbox etc.), driving off road or on unsealed roads, underside and tires, damages to any part of the wheels/wheel rim/tire, keys and lock / door handle, heavy soiling or damage, or any kind of vandalism.

Theft protection covers only theft of the whole car, and does not cover personal items belonging to customer, or parts of the car. The keys must be returned to the station.

T.W.U. Protection – Tires, Wheels & Undercarriage Insurance

As described above at the F.D.W. field, damages to tires, wheels and undercarriage of the vehicle are not protected. Choosing this extra protection during the booking procedure waves from the renter any liability on these kind of damages. (excluding driving off road)
