If the customer wishes to use their credit card to cover collision damage, a current letter of Authorisation from the credit card company must be presented at the time of rental in order to waive the CDI coverage. Client should note that theft insurance may not be included.
It is the sole responsibility of the customer to determine coverage with their provider and present proof of same upon arrival. If proof of coverage is insufficient, the customer will be charged locally for CDI. No car will be rented without CDI being included in the rental.

A damage report must be completed by the driver for any damage to the vehicle. If a collision occurs, a Police report must also be supplied when returning the vehicle. We strongly advise clients to contact us immediately in the event of any damage. If this procedure is not followed, the insurance cover could become invalid and the client could be liable for all damages.
