In the event of an accident what am I liable to pay?
When you rent a vehicle from Europcar, Third Party Liability cover for Bodily Injury is provided in accordance with the legal requirements of the country of rental.
In the event of loss or damage to the vehicle or third party property a Damage Liability Fee (DLF) will be charged. This fee is charged regardless of who is at fault or the amount of damage. If the loss or damage is ultimately less then the DLF, part of the DLF will be refunded.
This liability cost can be reduced by paying a daily fee that protects you in case of damage. You can purchase liability cover at the Europcar branch upon collection of your vehicle. Please check the FAQ question covering Damage and optional coverages for more information.
If new damage is noted when the vehicle is returned, you will be charged the corresponding amount and should the final repair cost (including any applicable administration or immobilisation charges) be lower than the amount charged, the difference will be reimbursed.
If Europcar is able to recover the costs of its damage from a liable Third Party, you will be reimbursed in full.
