When you rent a car, you want to hit the road feeling safe. That's why it's good to know that insurance regulations work differently in Europe compared to North America and the rest of the world. Just know, when you rent a car through autoshuren.nl your rental car is always well insured. However, there are some things to keep in mind.
The term "deductible" is a commonly used term in relation to insurances. Simply put, the deductible is the amount you have to pay yourself before the insurance will cover the cost.
The deductible can vary by country and car type, and this is stated in the terms and conditions of the destination. For North America, the following applies: in America there is no deductible and in Canada the deductible is CAD 800.
The excess can be bought off with the No-Risk Warranty of Autoshuren.nl. If you choose not to take insurance, the excess will be reserved as a deposit on the credit card of the main driver.
All rental cars are insured against theft. However, depending on the country where you rent the car, a deductible may apply.
CDW - Collission Damage Waiver
CDW (Collission Damage Waiver) insurance covers any damage to your own rental car. This insurance is included in all our rates. However, depending on the country where you rent the car, a deductible may apply. Please check the conditions for your destination.
Damage to tires, floors and windows
Damage to tires, floor, roof, mirrors and windows is not covered by the standard policy. In the United States, these parts are partially insured, with the exception of tires. It is possible to purchase additional insurance for this locally, but if you choose our No-Risk Warranty, this type of damage is covered and it is not necessary to purchase an additional insurance.
