All our car rental rates include fire and third party liability insurance. Our inclusive rates also provide collision and theft coverage at an advance purchase discount.

The following guidelines apply to rentals commencing in Serbia.
Fire and third party liability insurance is mandatory and is included in all rentals. Third party liability insurance offers some coverage in case of damage or injury to people or property outside of the rental car.
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection are included in our inclusive rates at a discount. CDW, if purchased at the rental counter, costs approximately US$10 - US$56 per day. Theft protection, if purchased at the rental counter, costs approximately US$13 - US$18 per day. CDW and theft coverage reduce the deductible (responsibility of the client) to US$250 for collision and US$500 for theft. Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) is available at the rental counter for approximately US$6 per day. Super CDW may be offered locally to reduce the deductible as low as zero. Optional insurance coverage is available with select suppliers only, rates subject to change without notice.
