General Terms and Conditions

I. Vehicle Conditions / Repairs

  1. The customer is obliged to handle the vehicle with care and in a professional manner in order to adhere to all substantial regulations and technical rules of use. This includes checking whether the vehicle is in good driving condition as well as locking the vehicle properly to safeguard against theft. The driver in particular needs to regularly check the level of operating liquids (oil and water levels), refilling these as necessary, and to also check the air pressure of the tires.

    The costs for fuel and petroleum fall under the expense of the customer.
  2. Repairs during the leasing period may only be arranged with the lessor’s consent. The repair costs shall be borne by the lessor, provided that the lessee is not responsible for causing the damage. The liability limitation at the amount of the excess shall not apply in the case of mechanical damage caused by the person authorised to drive due to operating error. In this case, the lessee shall bear all ancillary damage costs (e.g. towing expenses, costs for loss of rent, replacement car costs, etc.).

    It is mandatory to determine the necessity of a repair with the rental authority and, when necessary, contact should be established with the rental authority via the emergency number:

    +49 (0)172 295 38 93

    In case repairs to the vehicle are needed, they may only be made after notification and consent from the rental authority has been acquired. The repair costs will be reimbursed by the rental authority following the submission of a proper invoice and accompanying receipts.

II. Reservations / Cancellations

  1. In principle, reservations are to be carried out in writing. If the customer does not pick up the vehicle within an hour at the latest after the time agreed upon, the reservation is no longer binding. Cancellations must be made in writing up to 21 days prior to the start of the rental period.

    For cancellations made within 21 days prior to the start of the rental period, two thirds of the rental fee will be charged to the customer unless the vehicle can be otherwise rented.

    A general processing fee of EUR 100,00 will apply for any cancellation made 21 days prior to the start of the rental period, with no further obligations on the part of the rental authority.

    The full rental price will be applied to cancellations within 7 days of the rental start date unless the lessor is able to otherwise rent out the vehicle.

    In each case, the tenant is free to prove lower damages.

III. Authorised Drivers

  1. Only those persons able to prove their legal minimum age as well as in possession of a valid driver's license are permitted to drive the vehicle or to pick up the car keys.

    The vehicle may only be driven by the persons named in the contract. These persons must be informed at the time of rental of the terms and conditions of vehicle rental operating use. Upon request, the customer is obliged to inform the rental authority of the names and addresses of all drivers identified in the vehicle rental agreement. For the selection of the driver, it is the responsibility of the customer to assure that the entitled driver is in possession of a valid driver's license, recognised throughout the territory of the FRG. The customer is required to stipulate all persons designated to drive at the time of rental and to do everything in his power to verify these necessary inquiries.
  2. The customer is required to care for the vehicle as if it were his own. As such, the driver is an auxiliary agent of the customer, despite his being vicariously referred by the rental authority.

IV. Prohibited Uses / Cancellation Rights

  1. The vehicle may only be used in public traffic. The vehicle may not be used:
    1.1 For driving instructions,
    1.2 For motor sporting purposes, particularly competitive driving events, at which the aim is to reach a maximum speed or at which reliability trials and speed testing are incorporated,
    1.3 For vehicle tests or driving safety training,
    1.4 For the commercial transport of passengers,
    1.5 For further rental or leasing to third parties not listed in the rental agreement or listed as stipulated drivers, 1.6 For committing any criminal offences or in violation of the provision of any legislation, order or regulation affecting the use, loading or condition of the vehicle, or for any other illegal purposes,
    1.7 For transporting highly inflammable, poisonous or otherwise dangerous substances,
    1.8 For towing and pushing other vehicles.
  2. The built-in bed may not be used at any time while the vehicle is being driven.
  3. The customer is obliged to safeguard any property placed within the vehicle, acknowledging that it is the risk of the customer and not of the rental authority. Furthermore, the rental authority is not responsible for any such property.
  4. In cases in which the terms of vehicle use is clearly in breach of the contract terms, or under such circumstances that a continuation of the rental contract would be unacceptable, or when conduct is contrary to the aforementioned obligations, the rental authority may cancel the contract without notice.

    The company reserves the right not to reimburse any costs incurred due to damages caused by reckless behaviour contrary to the terms agreed upon in the contract. The right to cancellation is particularly applicable during the rental period if damages accrue due to disagreements between the customer and the rental authority in regard to the non-clarification of substantial damage caused to the vehicle. If the customer substantially exceeds the sum total of deposit calculated at the time of the rental agreement and relevant to the kilometre mileage allowance, then he is obliged to immediately report this to the rental authority and to pay an additional deposit respectively.

    If the customer refrains from communicating this and/or refuses to accept the adjustment in the deposit fee, then the rental authority may cancel the contract with immediate effect and without notice.

    In all aforementioned cases of infringement, the cancellation of the contract can be executed without any prior warning. Upon request, the customer, or a third party advocating on behalf of the customer, is required to return the vehicle immediately to the rental authority.

V. Rental price

  1. If the vehicle is not returned to the same location at which it was rented, the customer is obliged to refund the rental authority for the return transportation costs, provided that no other written agreement has been reached in advance.

    The rental fee does not include the costs for refuelling, gasoline, service charges as well as for delivery and pick-up fees. The prices can be obtained from the separate price list, where the terms of payment, protection and insurance services and deposit fees are also available. The rent, plus sales tax in accordance to the current legal amount is due at the beginning of the rental period. For longer bookings, package rates can be negotiated.

    All rental fees include the legal sales tax in accordance to the current legal amount as well as fully comprehensive insurance with an own contribution (personal excess liability) of EUR 1,500.00 and third party coverage excluding collision insurance with an own contribution (personal excess liability) of EUR 500,00. An own contribution (personal excess liability) of fully comprehensive insurance can vary and be reduced from EUR 1000,00 or EUR 500,00 according to the conditions of the current price list.

    In case of multiple damages incurred in a car accident during the rental period, the customer is subject to payment for his/her own insurance excess coverage. In the case of several accidents, the customer is subject to insurance excess coverage relative to each individual accident.

VII. Accidents / Theft / Disclosure Obligation

The customer and/or auxiliary agents are unconditionally liable for all legal penalties incurred, in particular for road traffic violations and misdemeanours.
