Damage to Vehicles

A damage report must be completed by the driver for any damage to the vehicle, however minor it is. If a collision occurs, a police report and case number must also be supplied when returning the vehicle. In the event of any damage we recommend you contact the car hire supplier immediately. If this procedure is not followed, the insurance cover could become invalidated, leaving clients liable for all damage.


The insurance is valid only on the islands of Kefalonia and Ithaca.

Includes unlimited public liability cover and third party liability cover for the driver(s) plus collision damage waiver.  However, the hirer is responsible for any damage to the hire car up to a maximum of 450 Euros for Groups A,B,C,D and E and 600 Euros for Groups F and W (the excess). These terms apply provided the damage is not due to violations of the Greek Traffic Law.

Additional Collision Damage Waiver can be purchased as an extra insurance which reduces the excesses mentioned above to 70 Euros. This can be purchased at an extra cost of 7 Euros per day per vehicle for Groups A, B and C. The cost for Groups D,E,F and W is 10 Euros per day per vehicle. These terms apply provided the damage is not due to violations of the Greek Traffic Law.

Personal injury and personal effects are NOT covered, however these are normally covered by your travel insurance policy.

In addition to the insurance cover provided by our suppliers for their vehicles, hirers should ensure that they have a full personal travel insurance policy.

The insurance becomes INVALID if anyone whose name is not on the contract drives the vehicle, also if vehicles are loaded with more passengers than their stated capacity; or if drivers are found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  Insurance cover will also lapse in the event of negligence, if the vehicle is driven on an unsuitable road, if the driver exceeds the speed limit and the driver uses fuel different to the one recommended by the manufacturer or the local car hire supplier.

The driver must return the car on the date and time stated on the rental contract - failure to do so will invalidate the insurance and the hirer will incur further charges.


Although our suppliers vehicles are all recent models, we recommend that you check your vehicle before leaving the airport/your accommodation/place of delivery (lights, indicators, tyres, etc.).  If you are not completely satisfied, this is the time to say so and, if necessary, ask for another vehicle.  Every effort will be made to supply the specified model; however it may be necessary to supply an equivalent (or better) vehicle as cars are changed frequently to ensure that the latest models are available.  Our local car rental partner can refuse to provide a vehicle to any customer who is, in their opinion, unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements.  In such circumstances your contract with us will be terminated, and we will have no further liability to you, and no refund will be due.

Bookings are made by car group/category and not by the type of car.
