A brief explanation of insurance for car companies in Europe
In the beginning, there are types of basic insurance during your travel and cover the accidents of the car or any damage and these types of insurance takes the traveler without knowing that he holds insurance
Some examples are as follows:
Travel insurance: What some call medical insurance is insurance that includes aviation accidents, delayed flights and loss of luggage and not only medical insurance and has many advantages vary from company to company
Credit Card: The credit card provides you with travel insurance and as long as you used it to pay the car rental company, there is an insurance item that applies to the process according to the agreement and is that the credit card company to compensate you, whether Visa or MasterCard American Express.
All the car companies give you a car with a basic insurance combined with the value of the rent that is paid and all that we pay them in the so-called comprehensive insurance and other These are additional types of insurance and are very many and all the extra
All the car companies insurance on the car and even if you assume that you did not take insurance, the company will not require you to pay the full value of the car in case of complete damage because it is basically insurance
When the amount of your credit card is booked, it is considered a guarantee but it is refundable if the car is prepared properly. In the case of damage, the amount of the damage is deducted and if the damage is large, you will not pay more than you paid in advance
Comprehensive insurance is the amount you pay non-refundable and usually have a value less than normal insurance, but the difference that the normal insurance is returned and the mass is never recovered
Example of the most types of insurance:
You rented a car from Euro car or ascot and then an amount of € 800 was charged to your card upon arrival. This amount is insurance or mortgage and when the car is returned properly, the money is refunded
If there is any damage, the repair value of the damage is deducted from the amount that they have paid them 800 Euros and if the car was damaged in full, you will not pay more than 800 Euros ever and this maximum amount is borne
In comparison to the above prices, the total insurance value may be € 200 for the entire period but is never refunded and will not be paid more than € 200 when the car is completely damaged. The amount you paid in the first place and when you receive this type of insurance, The car only in the case of extension of rent only and you are also supposed not to inspect the car and search for any scratches never because the amount you paid will never recover and even if there was any problem you paid and ended.
This insurance from Rental Car is considered as insurance on the amount of insurance you pay when you reach the leasing company or the amount reserved from your card (ie insurance on insurance) and when an accident or damage is deducted from you by the leasing company, It is wrong and wrong to take this type of insurance from Rental Car and then take a comprehensive insurance from the leasing company, there is no benefit, except to increase your expenses and this insurance only benefits you with normal insurance
There is more than one type of insurance
General terms and important abbreviations in insurance:
Theft Protection = TP

1- Different names and types of insurance from one company to another and you should read the description of insurance well and know what insurance and limits and the proportion of endurance
2 – Often if you pay the value of one of the products or types of insurance that you cannot cancel after that and you will not be entitled to claim its value, please pay careful attention before choosing the type of insurance
- For Rental Car insurance, it is considered a comprehensive insurance but at a lower rate than the comprehensive insurance at the office. About 50% when you buy the comprehensive protection from Rental Car, there is no need to take comprehensive insurance when you receive the car even if the pressure is placed on you by the office
Very important: We must distinguish between insurance and deposit
Deposit: An amount deducted from your credit card upon receipt of the vehicle and the refund will be given to you upon delivery of the vehicle
Insurance: It is insurance to protect you in the event of injury or injury, which is not refundable
Car insurance against damage and collision in Europe
For a car and a mobile home on a car Try what we have an overview of the cover of the mobile home and Campervan or for the four-wheel drive and lovers of camps Try our deposit box cover for the four-page
When renting a car in Europe there is usually an insurance deposit (also called liability) which is usually equal to the value of the car rental. European countries always require the owner of the car, the leasing company) to cover third-party damage to any other person’s injuries or damage to another person’s car (this is under EC Directive 2009/103
The following explanation is the answer to the question that is often asked when contracting a car: How can the tenant reduce the insurance deposit when renting a car?
These are the main options:
Buy “insurance against damage and collision” (CDW) from the leasing company. This reduces the potential liability of downloading the full value of the vehicle to about € / $ / £ 1500- $ 3,000
Most tenants also buy either
“Super Insurance Against Damage and Collision” or Super Insurance Defect Loss and HWA SCDW with covered theft is booked from the leasing company. This reduces the above amount to between € / $ / 0 – £ 500
On the other hand, buy the best choice
“RentalCover.Com” instead of Super CDW or Super Insurance against damage and collision. This reduces the liability to € / $ / £ 0 of the document sold at RentalCover.com unless there is a dispute & special conditions for Alabaman
CDW (also called “loss indemnity insurance and damage” if it includes burglar theft protection
Usually, this is at the price you see online. Note that this “type of insurance” is simply to reduce the deposit from the high amount of any of the full value of the car to between € / $ / £ 1500 & € / $ / £ 3000 depending on the type of car and the leasing company but the reduction may be up to € / $ / £ 10,000 for some sports cars, especially in France
The insurance policy against damage and collision is usually excluded from the safe & glass. Repair and change of frames, roof, insides, windows and side mirrors. The Tenant shall be responsible for the full cost of such repairs. Many companies also rule out theft because they sell a separate insurance robbed robbery
Usually, it is included in the rental price but when sold separately. CDW costs € / $ / £ 10 to € / $ / £ 30 per day. LDW (which is CDW Hwa with extra theft protection) is at the same price
If the theft protection is not already added, we recommend that all customers get the basic CDW (or LDW which includes burglar protection) when renting any European car
Super CDW or Collision Damage Insurance (also known as “Discount to Zero Value”, “Deposit Reduction”, “Extended Damage and Collision Insurance”)
If the CDW has been notified as recommended, the deposit ranges are still between € / $ / £ 1500-3000. This can be reduced with the Super CDW as you can make it up because the leasing companies may also launch this CDW product only but the main thing to be aware of is that this document is a super discount insurance deposit of between € / $ / £ 1500 & € / $ / £ 3000 to about € / $ / £ 0
This document is sold frequently at the leasing and costing stations similar to CDW (€ / $ / £ 10 to € / $ / £ 30 per day) with hidden exceptions such as (glass, replacement or repair of tires, roof, insides, and side mirror damage). Maintenance costs for these types of damage are calculated at full rates but are limited to a reduced liability between € / $ / £ 1500- 3000
Rental coverage (also called “insurance deposit coverage”)
<Hua is a much cheaper alternative to Super CDW and the variants of the above-mentioned damage also include as. In the event of an accident, you pay to the leasing company for damages and then claim RentalCover.com. Usually, claims are settled within 3 business days
