Rental car’s insurance
The hired car is insured for damages caused to third parties only for the rental period specified in the Renting Contract. The damages suffered by the hired car, due to the client’s negligence or to an unknown person will be covered by the insurance policy; except the guarantee deposit, which will be the client’s task. This sum of money will be written in the contract. In case of accident, the client is obliged to go to the Police, which will establish the damages and will release an Observation Record and a Repairing Authorization. These documents are necessary for the insurance and for the car’s reparations. The Police Record is mandatory in every case: if you are guilty, if you are guilty but not involved, if the guilty part is not identified. Without it, the client is held responsible for the entire reparation’s costs. Driving under the alcohol’s or drugs’ influence will bring upon the driver the consequences provided by the law (the Casco insurance will no longer apply). If the car will not be returned in the same delivery conditions, the guarantee deposit (200-500 Euros) will be retained by the owner, and, if the insurance will not cover the damages produced by the client (if he drove under alcohol, narcotics, or other substances influence), he is obliged to pay the damaged car entirely. After the contract expires, the customer is still responsible for paying any prejudice ascertained afterwards.
Any litigation that occurs during the present contract’s duration will be presented to the competent courts in Bucharest. The parties agree that the present contract will constitute Executorial Title for receiving any remaining sum of money, proceeding to enforcement without any collection letter.
