Payment is always made locally by cash(euros) or cards(visa,master).IT IS NOT neccesary to be a card holder to hire a car from Pefanis.
The roads on our island consist mainly of concrete and tarmac which proves hazardous when wet and extreme caution must be exercised while driving under these conditions. Also, you may not be accustomed to finding goats, pigs, donkeys, chickens or slow moving vehicles in the road while navigating a sharp bend.
Our island has its fair share of accidents and we see many holidays ruined due to the somewhat hazardous conditions on our roads.
While this is not intended to dissuade you from hiring a car, it does show you the importance of hiring quality vehicles with the very best insurance cover to safeguard you and your family against any unfortunate incident.
All our vehicles come with full comprehensive cover which includes personal accident injury. Full details are available on request, but the policy does not cover the driver whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs,or if the car is not driven by drivers mentioned on rental agreement.
A Collision Damage Waiver is included within the price you pay for the hire, meaning that you will not be charged an excess in the event of an accident resulting in damage to the vehicle but with the following exceptions:
Damage to the vehicle's interior, including excessive dirt is not covered, nor is the underside of the car, including suspension, exhaust and braking systems and engine damage, where this is the direct result of using the vehicle off of the main roads.All the above parts and underside part of the car is still covered on asphalt roads.
As explained when you arrive, our Insurance and the FCDW only covers you while driving on our tarmac and concrete roads, even if you hire a 4X4. So if damage should occur while driving off-road, you are not covered and YOU WILL BE CHARGED!
There are no small print or hidden conditions in the insurance policy(traffic law or others) that will not cover your full vehicle damage in any case of accident even if the damage caused is driver's fault.Other companies do not cover damages caused due to violation of the Greek traffic law even when the accident caused not by the driver of the hired car.We do cover any kind-size of damage on the car while the car is driven on asphalt roads.Also there is no exception of any car part damaged in case of accident on an asphalt road.Tyres-wheels-underside-glass-mirrors,lights-etc are all fully covered.
Also no police report is neded in case of accident-damage of the car as we cover any eventuality,so even if your car is parked and gets damaged while you are not present you will not be charged.However you have to call us immidietly in case of any case of accident with another vehicle or not and try to take other's car reg number if possible in any case.
Our insurance covers personal injuries up to 750.000 euros per person and material damage to third party up to 700.000 euros.
The prices we charge include our unsurpassed insurance, unlimited mileage whilst on Kefalonia,additional named drivers, all local government imposed taxes, delivery to the Airport, Argostoli, Lassi, Svoronata and Skala and breakdown assistance with an exchange car should the need arise.
Our prices offer great value when you consider what you get for your money. Please be aware that not all companies supply the same level of insurance and breakdown cover and it is YOUR responsibility to make sure you have adequate insurance to drive a vehicle while here.
Also, with recent changes to the European Directive, motoring offences that occur within a member state of the EU are automatically enforced the same as if in your own country. The Greek justice system may be more harsh than your own and may result in more severe penalties than you're otherwise accustomed to.
