and bodily injury up to 6.1 Million Euro.
Moreover, the motorhome itself is insured in case of damage under a comprehensive motor insurance. The insurance premium is completely included in the rental charge; you will find an international insurance certificate (so-called Green Insurance Card) among the vehicle documents.
Per case of damage, the Hirer must bear an excess to a maximum amount of 1,000 Euro If necessary, the excess is set off against the security deposit.
Any damage not covered by the insurance, such as for example damage caused by alcohol- or narcotics-related unfitness to drive, by leaving the vehicle to an unauthorized driver, etc., are completely at the Hirer's expense.
Any damage to the interior and/or the inventory is not covered by the insurance either so that respective costs of repair or replacement must be completely borne by the Hirer. The Rental Firm is not liable for any damage, whether direct or indirect, caused by acts of the Hirer
The indemnity against liability will not apply if the Hirer causes a loss/damage deliberately or by gross negligence.
If the Hirer causes loss/damage culpably, he will additionally be liable in the following cases:
* if loss/damage was caused by impaired ability to drive due to drugs or alcohol
* if the Hirer or a driver to whom the Hirer has supplied the vehicle leaves the site of an accident without justification
* if the Hirer fails to call the police to an accident
* if loss/damage is caused by an unauthorized driver to whom the Hirer has supplied the vehicle
* if loss/damage is due to a failure to take account of the vehicle's dimensions -height German Road Traffic Regulations, with German Road Traffic Regulations
* if loss/damage is due to a failure to comply with load regulations
To avoid increasing costs due to expenses incurred to establish the amount of the damage suffered, the Rental Firm will in the event of accident damage initially supply the Hirer on request with sample invoices for the type of case concerned.
The Hirer is liable for all fees, charges, fines and penalties imposed upon the Rental Firm in connection with the use of the vehicle, unless these are incurred due to the fault of the Rental Firm.

It is not permitted to accept any third-party claims as valid.
Even in the case of very slight damage, the Hirer must prepare a detailed written report for the Rental Firm, including a sketch. If, for whatever reason, the renter fails to draw up such report and if, because of that, the insurance company refuses to pay the damage, the renter shall be obliged to pay full compensation for the damage.
The accident report must in particular include the names and addresses of anyone involved and any witnesses, together with the license numbers of all vehicles involved.
Defects in the motorhome
The vehicle is handed with instructions from all manufacturers of the technical equipment in the folder with the vehicle papers. In the event of technical problem, client should read first these instructions carefully as he may be able to avoid operating problems right from the beginning.
In the event of technical problems, client should contact the respective emergency number of the vehicle manufacturers or one of the rental branches, which will be glad to help and assist.
All relevant telephone numbers are written in the brochure or on the rental agreement.
Client must notify the rental station in advance of any defects that cannot be completely repaired during the journey, so that the stay in the workshop can be better planned and the necessary spares be obtained beforehand.
Repairs, substitute vehicle
Repairs which are necessary in order to maintain the vehicle in a good working and roadworthy condition during the rental period may be ordered by the Hirer up to
150 Euro without consultation.
Repairs going beyond this may only be ordered with the consent of the Rental Firm. The Rental Firm will bear repair costs on production of the original invoices and the parts replaced, as long as the Hirer is not liable for the damage. This does not apply to tyre damage.
If a defect for which the Rental Firm is responsible makes such a repair necessary, and if the Hirer does not rectify the defect on his own initiative, the Hirer must notify the Rental Firm of the defect immediately and set a reasonable deadline for its repair. Any circumstances specific to a particular country (e.g. infrastructure) which delay the repair must be taken into account here to avoid disadvantage to the Rental Firm.
If the motorhome is destroyed without any fault on the part of the Hirer or if it appears likely that its use will be prevented or withdrawn for an unreasonably long time, the Rental Firm will be entitled to supply the Hirer with an equivalent substitute vehicle within a reasonable period. If the Rental Firm supplies an equivalent substitute vehicle, any termination by the Hirer pursuant to 543 Para. II No. 1 German Civil Code [BGB]) is excluded. If in such a case the Rental Firm offers a motorhome from a lower price class and this is accepted by the Hirer, the Rental Firm will reimburse to the Hirer the difference between this and the price already paid in advance by the Hirer.
If the motorhome is destroyed due to the renter's fault or if it is foreseeable that its use will be prevented or made impossible for an unreasonably long period due to the renter's fault, the rental firm may refuse to make a replacement vehicle available.
In such a case, termination of the contract by the renter is excluded according to 543 Subsec. II No.1 BGB. If the rental firm provides a replacement vehicle, it can charge the renter with the transfer costs incurred.
Despite good care and preventive maintenance, there may occur a mechanical defect in the motorhome during the trip. In such cases, repair work may exclusively be performed by a dealer of the respective (superstructure/vehicle) brand. In case of any repair and also damage exceeding an amount of 150 Euro, the Hirer is obliged to enter into contact with the Rental Firm immediately and follow the instructions given by the Rental Firm. The Rental Firm will provide for counselling with regard to a correct handling or for arrangement of the repair. All repair work on both, the exterior and interior of the motorhome must be carried out by experts. Any unnecessary repair shall be at the Hirer's expense. The costs of repair incurred by the Hirer shall be reimbursed against submission of the specified repair invoices (made out to the Rental Firm) and handing over of the replaced parts.
The Rental Firm has insured the motorhome for cases of a transport back.
This insurance contract was concluded with the ANWB (Dutch ADAC) so that, in case of serious damage or defects that make any further use of the vehicle impossible, a transport will be taken care of. Under such circumstances, the Hirer must not only immediately contact the Rental Firm under the phone number:
McRent 0182-619479 (only available during the day),
