Road safety

Road safety

The roads on our island consist mainly of concrete and tarmac not very wide but in good generally condition for an island as Kefalonia.

You always need to drive on right hand side and with low speed as generally our roads are bendy.

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.

Insurance

Insurance

All our vehicles come with full comprehensive cover (FCDW), which includes personal accident injury. But the policy does not cover the driver whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs,if the car is not driven by the drivers mentioned on the rental agreement, or if the car carries more passengers than permitted. Fire insurance with no excess and theft insurance with no excess are also included in the price.

A Full 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 interior, including excessive dirt, is not covered, nor is the underside of the car, including suspension, exhaust, braking systems, or engine damage, where this is the direct result of using the vehicle off of the main roads. All the above parts and the underside part of the car are still covered on asphalt roads. Also, damages caused to the car on purpose are also not covered by any insurance. The car key is not insured in case of breakage or loss.

As explained when you arrive, our insurance and the FCDW only cover 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 either.

There is 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 the driver's fault. We do cover any kind of damage to the car while it is driven on asphalt roads. Also, there is no exception to any car part damaged in the case of an accident on an asphalt road. Tyres, wheels, underside-glass, mirrors, lights, etc are all fully covered.

Also, no police report is needed 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 immediately in case of any accident with another vehicle, whether you took another person's car reg number if possible.

Our insurance covers personal injuries(passengers and third party) up to 1.000.000 euros and material damage to third parties up to 1.000.000 euros, according to Greek laws about all insurance companies and the cover they all have to provide
