When booking a car via price comparison, a liability insurance is included by default. This covers you against personal injury and property damage. However, the amount of cover set out in the rental conditions may vary depending on the provider. We recommend cover of at least one million euros. A comprehensive cover without excess is also useful. If the car is damaged, you do not have to pay extra for it. The excess will first be deducted from your deposit and then refunded to you by the vehicle broker. There is a choice of further supplementary insurances, for example for glass and tyre protection as well as for underbody protection.
If you want to rent a car, you have to pay a deposit. This secures the car rental. The money is mostly debited from your credit card when you collect keys and papers on site. If you return the car undamaged, the car rental company will refund the deposit completely.
You travel with an escort and don't want to drive the rental car alone during your stay? Then you can register people with a driver's license as an additional driver. These are automatically included in the insurance cover. Our comparison portal tells you which offers for a rental car already include the registration of an additional driver.
