Unforeseen events are always just around the corner and sometimes damage to the bodywork, a chipped windshield or a punctured tire risk ruining the entire trip. Better not get caught off-guard! To all our customers who have booked a vehicle, we can offer optional cover for the reduction/elimination of damage and theft penalties.
Our optional covers
Our customers, when booking or when picking up the vehicle, can choose to purchase at their discretion:
- optional cover for the reduction or elimination of damage and theft penalties;
- extra accessories;
- extra services.
Standard protection included with every rental
With Sicily by Car every standard rental includes:
- Civil liability;
- penalty reduction for damage (CDW);
- theft/fire penalty reduction (TLW).
The reduction of the penalty for damages implies that, in the event of damage to the rental vehicle, the customer is responsible for the payment up to the amount foreseen by the maximum penalty (which varies according to the car) and nothing more.
Case and point, in the event of theft or fire: the customer will never have to pay the full value of the vehicle, only an amount predetermined by our rental conditions remains at their expense.
The customer shall in any case observe a "correct and diligent use" of the vehicle, as well as compliance with road traffic regulations. Otherwise, you will be held responsible for the entire damage.
Our rates also include a third-party liability insurance policy that covers damage to third parties (people, animals or things) while driving.
Let's now see the optional covers in detail. We always invite you to consult our rental conditions before proceeding with the purchase.
