Protection package details

 


There's always a protection to fit your needs


What are the new Europcar Protection packages?

We offer three different packages:



Each parckage offers a different level of protection and reduction of excess amounts.


What does each package contain?


Basic Protection


Basic protection is, in most cases, included in the quoted rental price.


It limits your financial liability in case of damage of the vehicle caused by collision, theft or attempted theft.


Are therefore not included in the Basic Protection Package:


The excess amount for Basic Protection varies depending on the vehicle category chosen and the country in which the rental is/will be taking place.


NOTE: Basic protection is mandatory for your rental.  You must either be covered by your payment card (for USA and Canadian residents) or purchase Basic protection separately.


Medium Protection


Reduces your financial liability in case of damage to the vehicle as a result of collision, theft or attempted theft. 


Medium protection package also protects you in the event of damage to the windscreen, headlights or tires (except for rentals in the UK or France).


It also includes personal accident protection that provides indemnity for drivers and people in the vehicle in case of bodily injury or death.

The indemnity amount can go up to €50 000 per individual.


Are therefore not included in the Basic Protection Package:


Premium Protection


Premium protection package waives your financial liability in case of damage to the vehicle, windscreen, mirrors, headlights and/or tires as a result of collision, theft or attempted theft.


It also includes personal accident protection of up to €200,000 per individual, covering drivers and passengers in the event of bodily injury or death.  Also covering your personal effects in the event of lost or damaged luggage.


Are therefore not included in the Premium Protection Package:


The Premium protection package is neither available for the vehicles of the Selection range: Europcar offers an adapted protection package with a more reduced excess than the Medium protection package.


Minimum age required:
