Europcar Insurance and Protection

Who we are

We are EUROPCAR. We are a “Société par Action Simplifiée” incorporated in France under company number 542 065 305 and our registered office is located in Voisins-le-Bretonneux (78690), Parc d’Affaires “Le Val Saint-Quentin”, Bâtiment L, 2 rue René Caudron. We supply vehicle rental services under the brands of ‘Europcar’ and ‘InterRent’.
 
Thank you for choosing Europcar to supply your rental vehicle needs. We hope everything will go very smoothly for you but, just in case it doesn’t, we have set out below a summary of:
 
• insurance that we include as part of our rental service because there is a legal obligation upon us to do so (I-Mandatory Third Party Liability insurance Provisions); and
• other protection products that we make available to you because we want to be able to give you peace of mind during your rental with us (II-Protection products provisions).
 
These insurance and protection products are designed to cover your potential exposure if any of the following circumstances occur whilst you are renting and using one of our Vehicles. Without them, you will be personally responsible for the financial consequences:
  • Liability to a Third Party means other people’s bodily injury or death and / or damage to their property that occurs because of an accident or incident that you may cause. Damage to a third party’s property could include buildings or their contents, machinery or personal possessions. The cost of any business interruption associated with either the third party’s injury or death and/or the damage to their property will also form part of this liability.
  • Damage to or theft of the Vehicle: the Vehicle itself may be damaged as a result of a collision or an attempted theft and need to be repaired or it may be so badly damaged that it is irreparable and we write it off; or it may be stolen and not recovered
    You should be aware that if you are the driver of the Vehicle at the time of a collision and you are responsible for the collision taking place then whilst any injured Passengers will be covered by our Third Party Liability insurance your own injuries (together with the possible associated consequences of it) or death will not. You can, however, be protected from such circumstances if you purchase any of our Personal Accident protections separately.
 
DEFINITIONS
 
For the purposes of this document we have given the following words or expressions particular meaning:
 
abnormal use: means that your use of the Vehicle whilst you are in charge of it doesn’t comply with the Road Traffic laws that prevail and/or does not meet with the requirements of the Local Rental terms and conditions and/or does not meet with the standards of driving that would be expected of a reasonable and prudent driver
 
Accident Report (“declaration d’accident”): means a full and complete signed statement (including any other document(s)) which records all of the facts of an accident or incident as they occurred (for example, how the event occurred, the nature of the damage to the Vehicle, the location where the incident took place, the dates and circumstances and any potential witness details)

Collision means the impact of the Vehicle with another fixed or moving body or object
 
Excess amount is a specified sum of money that, provided you have complied with the Local Rental terms and conditions and have not committed a breach of any applicable laws, is the maximum amount we will charge you for the cost of any damage caused to the Vehicle as a result of a collision during the rental period or its attempted theft; or the loss of a Vehicle if it is written off because it is irreparable or if it is stolen and we do not get it back. The Excess amount is a non-waivable sum that is governed by the conditions of the protection product you have purchased.

Third Party Liability insurance means insurance that provides the driver of a Vehicle with protection against liability for another party’s claims for damage to his/her property or for bodily injury or death arising out of an incident arising whilst you are using the Vehicle.

1. Mandatory third party liability insurance provisions

We are mandated by the laws of all of the countries in which we operate our vehicle rental services to insure our Vehicles against liability for the claims or actions of Third Parties. We have purchased the best Third Party Liability insurance from the foremost insurers in the business and it is automatically included as part of our vehicle rental services. You will therefore, as a matter of course, be covered up to the level legally required by the country in which you are renting the Vehicle for the consequences others may suffer as a direct result of your actions whilst you are driving the Vehicle.
 
What am I covered for?
 
As provided by law you will be insured against liability for the financial cost of any of the following consequences that may arise as a result of an incident that you cause when you are using the Vehicle:
 
• bodily injury or death suffered by Third Parties; and
• property damage sustained by Third Parties and losses and costs arising as a consequence of the damage.
 
What is excluded from the cover?
 
Third Party Liability insurance does not cover:
 
• bodily injury or death that you (the driver at the time of the collision) may suffer; or
• any damage to or loss of your personal property or possessions; or
• any damage caused to the Vehicle
 
What is the amount of my financial exposure for Third Party Liability?
 
Provided you have not committed a breach of any applicable laws (including any relevant road traffic regulations) then you will be covered for the financial cost of any Third Party Liability arising as the result of a collision that you may cause whilst you are driving the Vehicle up to the level legally required by the country in which you are renting the Vehicle.
 
However, if you didn’t comply with those laws and/or regulations then, whilst our insurer will still fulfil its obligations to Third Parties under the Third Party Liability insurance policy, it may seek to recover from you some or all of the costs it may have paid to that Third Party as a result of the incident.
 
How to notify us?
 
In circumstances involving Third Parties it is important that you do your utmost to properly complete and sign an Accident Report (“Constat d’accident”) form which gives us all relevant details of both the incident and of the Third Party. This will allow us to defend our case against the Third Party (if you are responsible for the incident) or to recover costs from the Third Party (if the Third Party is responsible for the incident). The Accident Report form should be transmitted to us within 5 working days of the incident or as soon as you reasonably can in the circumstances.

 

2. Protection products provisions

 COLLISION DAMAGE PROTECTION

Our collision damage protection product limits your financial exposure for damage caused to the Vehicle whilst it is in your care. If you purchase our standard collision damage protection product and comply with the applicable laws and the Local Rental terms and conditions then we will pay for the cost of damage to the Vehicle that exceeds the Excess amount. You can reduce or eliminate the Excess amount by purchasing our premium/or medium collision damage protection products instead of the standard collision damage protection offering.
 
This protection does not cover the loss or theft of or damage to objects or property, (including luggage or goods) that are deposited or kept or transported in or on the Vehicle by you or by any Passenger.
 
What does this protect me against?
 
This product protects you from liability for any amount greater than the Excess amount for the following combined costs related to:
 
• the cost of damage to or repair of the Vehicle or its book value if it is not repairable and must be written off; and 
• our Loss of Use in the Vehicle whilst it is being repaired and / or written off; and in circumstances where:
• you collide with a fixed or moving object; or
• the Vehicle is subject to an act of vandalism while you are driving or using it; or
• any glass (including sunroofs or panoramic roofs) or lights or reflectors are damaged or broken or tyres are damaged or punctured during a collision

What is excluded from the protection?
 
• You will be financially liable for the full cost of the damage to the Vehicle if the damage is caused:
          o by the wilful acts of the driver; or
          o by an explosion or fire in (or to) the Vehicle because you are using it to transport dangerous goods (dangerous goods being any product or substance that, due to its nature and/ or main characteristics, is reasonably considered to be dangerous and which, if not transported with appropriate caution and safety, could cause harm to the Vehicle, and to any Third Party within a reasonable distance of the Vehicle); or
          o by its total or partial theft or an act of vandalism whilst the Vehicle is left parked unattended.
          o by your negligence (which is behaviour that falls below the standards expected of a reasonably sensible person in similar circumstances) or the negligence of your Passengers (for example but not limited to a fire caused by the use or disposal of cigarettes or cigars);

What is the amount of my financial exposure?
 
If during your rental the Vehicle is damaged and you have not purchased this protection you will have to pay for the total cost of the damage as well as compensation due its immobilization.
 
We will calculate the average cost of light damage from the table matrix that can be found at our pick-up stations. If the damage is not listed in the table matrix (because it does not fit in with what is considered to be ‘light damage’ or it is not feasible to calculate the average price) then an independent expert will evaluate the damage cost which may be as much as the full Book value
 
However, provided you have complied with the Local Rental terms and conditions and the applicable law and road traffic regulations then the maximum you will have to pay us is the Excess amount.

You can reduce or eliminate the Excess amount by purchasing our premium or/medium theft protection products instead of the theft protection offering.
