How does it work?
This insurance will limit your responsibility towards loss, damage or theft of the rental vehicle to a set deductible value that is equal to the Security Deposit. Size of deductible depend on the vehicle model. The Optional vehicle Liability Reduction Insurance will cover damages that exceed the deductible. The insurance reduces, but does not eliminate responsibility for damage or theft and it will not protect you if you provide fraudulent information, use the vehicle in connection with conduct that could be properly charged as a felony, drive under influence of drugs or alcohol, reckless driving, use the vehicle in a speed test or contest, or if the vehicle is driven by a person other than the driver authorized on the contract. The driver must additionally comply with all terms and conditions in the rental contract and the local laws. Police or other authorities might demand a blood test in connection with an accident. Result here of might also be used by the insurer to determine insurance settlements. Personal and third party property is not covered by this insurance. The insurance does not cover recovery of the vehicle in case of un-repairable damages and the renter is solely responsible for all costs involved with returning a damaged vehicle to Motolombia in Cali, Colombia. Motolombia will go above and beyond to help recover damaged vehicle at as low cost as possible and often at no cost at all.
If you DECLINE this insurance you are responsible for the FULL value of the vehicle and all expenses including, but not limited to, recovery, loss, damage or theft of the vehicle.
