About fuel

The renter is obliged to follow all instructions and always use the correct type of fuel. Vehicles are hired out with ¼, ½, ¾ or with full tank and expected to be brought back with the same level of tank as was delivered at the beginning of the rental. Otherwise, the renter will be charged with the cost of the missing fuel. We use common sense, a bit more or less doesn't matter. The company cannot guarantee a full tank of petrol from before.

 

Traffic violations

The renter assumes full responsibility for the traffic violations and pays the respective fines during the rental. If any such administrative sanction is not disclosed to the company at the end of the rental period, the violation will be charged to the renter, if the date of the offense coincides with the period stated in the lease contract.
