1. Driver Eligibility
All drivers must be over 25 years of age and have held a full driving licence for at least 1 year.
Drivers aged between 21 and 25 years old to drive a rental car PROVIDED that they have held a full driving licence for minimum of 3 years. Such drivers are required to pay an additional charge of €7.00 per rental day.
Maximum driving age is generally 78 years old. Such drivers are required to pay an additional charge of €7.00 per rental day.
Our station staff will decide if a driver is of sufficient health to be in control of a motor vehicle, and we reserve the right to refuse any rental on the grounds of ill-health.
In case one person does not feel like doing all the driving, we have the provision to add up to two additional drivers on a rental agreement. Additional charge of €5.00 per rental day, per additional driver. Note - all drivers must meet the criteria described above for driver eligibility.
All drivers, whether Main or Additional, regardless of age, are required to show their driving licence to one of our staff before taking delivery of their car.
2. Insurance Cover
The daily rental price shown includes our standard insurance, as required by law, and also Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) which provides cover against repair costs relating to our vehicle in the event of any damage occurring. The hirer only pays the policy excess of €900 to €2500 (Dependant on group and model taken). This cover excludes damage to tyres, the windscreen or the oil-sump, for which the hirer remains responsible at all times.
This level of insurance cover is standard with every rental, and is sufficient for a hirer to legally drive the vehicle in Cyprus.
Drivers have the option to increase their level of insurance cover if they so choose. Wheels and Windscreen Insurance Waiver (WWI) is offered for €4.00 per rental day, which increases the cover to include all parts of the vehicle, including tyres, windscreen and oil-sump. The policy excess still applies. This additional insurance must be selected at the start of the rental, and payment is taken locally prior to delivery of the vehicle.
Alternatively, a number of protection packages are available to limit or to ZERO the liability. Drivers may choose our fully-comprehensive insurance policy, known as Full Protection (SEDW). For €10.00 per day, this option includes all the cover provided by WWI and additionally reduces the policy excess to € ZERO. Also included is of personal accident insurance (excluding Driver) , underwritten by the Cyprus Hire Risk Pool. All additional insurances or protection packages must be selected at the start of the rental.
3. Insurance Limitations
Insurance limitations are clearly shown on the reverse of every rental contract issued. No insurance cover whatsoever is provided if a vehicle is driven into the occupied Northern Area of the island, if a vehicle is driven on an unsurfaced road, or if there is negligence on the part of the driver. Such negligence includes (but is not limited to) driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failing to adhere to road traffic regulations, failure to report an accident to the police, or intentionally trying to damage the vehicle. In any of these cases, the driver becomes responsible for the market value of our vehicle as well as recovery costs and any costs relating to third-party claims.
All vehicles are delivered with a full tank of fuel. This is not included in the rental cost and must be paid for in advance at the start of the rental (charged at an average price per litre) and the car is returned without re-fuelling at the end of the rental. NOTE: Unused fuel is not refundable.
The price of a full tank of fuel varies according to Group and engine size. Petrol prices can fluctuate daily, but our price will always be based on the average price per litre charged at filling stations across the island.
