This depends on the type of vehicle, the season, the number of days, availability, and the number of vehicles rented. Contact us by telephone or email if you would like a personalised package.

Vehicle rental, handling costs, cleaning services, and tuning services are included. All our vehicles are completely insured and come with an excess of 900€, which can be reduced to 400€ or be eliminated entirely if you choose a more complete insurance package. Insurance without excess always requires a security deposit. The insurance is valid within the European Union, as well as in Switzerland and Norway.

Our vehicles come with fully comprehensive insurance which includes an excess of 900€ and assistance in the European Union, Switzerland, and Norway. This means any damages with a cost lower than the excess that are produced during the rental period (for which the lessee is responsible) will be deducted from this excess. It's possible to reduce the excess to 400€ or to eliminate it entirely if you choose a more complete insurance package.
To avoid any mishaps, we ask that you inspect the vehicle thoroughly before removing it from our facilities to let us know of any imperfections which we might have missed so that we can include them in the contract.

The features of each vehicle vary, however all vehicles include a complete set of kitchenware, including dishes and cutlery for the maximum amount of occupants that the vehicle can accommodate. They also include towels and a set of bed linens for all occupants, as well chemical products for the toilet and a cleaning kit for the kitchen sink.

If you cancel with 15 days' notice or more, we will reimburse you 50% of the deposit. We will only charge 100% of the deposit if you cancel in the 14 days prior to your reservation.
Trip cancellation insurance is available to clients.
In case of return on a date prior to that agreed in the contract, the amount paid will not be returned, since it is understood as a breach of the contract by the lessee. Except for cases in which one of our travel insurance has been contracted that contemplates early returns or cancellations.
If you need to change your reserved dates for any reason, please contact us so that we can find the best possible solution.
