* 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, contrary to the obligation imposed by Section 8, unless this breach of obligation does not affect either the establishment of the cause of the loss/damage or of its amount

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 tire 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is destroyed without any fault on the part of the Hirer or if it appears likely that its use will be prevented or withdrawn for an unreasonably long time, the Rental Firm will be entitled to supply the Hirer with an equivalent substitute vehicle within a reasonable period.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 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. If the rental firm provides a replacement vehicle, it can charge the renter with the transfer costs incurred.
