Buggs Car Hire

insurance cover


Included in the price of your car hire is Standard Vehicle Insurance

Standard Vehicle Insurance consists of “Collision Damage Waiver“ (CDW) or “Fully Comprehensive” cover for the hirer and any additional drivers on the rental agreement

This insurance cover is for damage to the hired vehicle, theft/vandalism of the vehicle and a comprehensive 3rd party cover, but will carry an insurance excess payable in the event of any claim
 

The Insurance Excess on buggs cars are...

  • Groups - Small, Small Fun and Compact 1000€ 
  • Groups - Compact Fun, Estate and SUV 1200€ 
  • Groups - 7 Seater and Sports Fun 1400€

It is strongly recommended that you purchase a Buggs Excess Protection option, which reduces or eliminates the excess payable 

If you choose the Buggs Excess Protection, payment of the relevant insurance excess, in the event of any damage or insurance claim, will be reduced by 75% to 25% of the excess. The Buggs Excess Protection does not include any damage to glass, wheels and tyres and vehicle undercarriage, for which the customer remains fully responsible and must reimburse Buggs in full

  • 10€ per day   

If you have chosen the Buggs Excess Protection Plus, payment of the insurance excess, in the event of any damage or insurance claim, will be waivered in full. The Buggs Excess Protection Plus does not include any damage to glass, wheels and tyres and vehicle undercarriage, for which the customer remains fully responsible and must reimburse Buggs in full

  • 18€ per day 

If the Customer chooses not to accept either of the offered Buggs Excess Protection packages, then the Customer will be liable to pay the Company the full Insurance excess relating to the vehicle, in the event of an insurance claim or damage to the vehicle. The Customer authorises the Company to take the payment for this from the card the Customer has provided as guarantee. 

If the Customer chooses not to accept either of the offered Buggs Excess Protection packages then the Customer may be requested to leave a larger guarantee than the standard guarantee of 250 euros, before the rental can begin.

Tyre and Glass Protection cover is available and by paying the daily rate we will reimburse you fully for the cost of the repair or replacement due to accidental damage. You will need to produce valid invoices.

  • 5€ per day 

If you have a 'Third-Party' Excess waiver Insurance, then you are liable to reimburse Buggs first and then claim back later through your thrid-party insurer

If you do not have Excess Insurance of any kind, you are taking a huge risk, which could prove to be very expensive...not to be recommended
