Insurance is extremely important when renting a vehicle as requirements often vary from country to country. With Auto Europe your rental rate in Spain will automatically include all mandatory insurances. Below we have gone into detail what insurance is required to be on your vehicle rental and what other options are available to your through Auto Europe and the local suppliers in Spain. If beginning your rental in Spain the insurance guidelines of Spain will be in effect for the entire duration of the rental even in the event it is returned to a different country. Specific insurance information can be found in the terms and conditions area of your rental voucher.
In Spain car rentals are required to have fire insurance and third party liability insurance coverage. Here at Auto Europe we include both forms of insurance on all basic rental rates in Spain. Fire insurance generally provides an unlimited amount of coverage in the event the rental vehicle is damage because of a fire. Third party liability provides and unlimited amount of coverage to people and property outside the rental vehicle that may be damaged or injured because of the rental vehicle
In Spain there are a few forms of optional insurance coverage, which includes collision damage waiver (CDW), theft protection, personal accident insurance and super CDW. CDW and theft are optional and will be included at an advance purchase discount if the inclusive rate it selected. CDW and theft in most cases will have a deductible that you are still responsible for in the event of an accident or theft, which can range from $860 up to $1,575 CAD. Many suppliers offer a supplementary insurance which is called super CDW which will help reduce the amount of the deductible that you are responsible for. The cost for super CDW is approximately $12 CAD per day up to $22 CAD per day and is available through select suppliers only. Personal accident insurance is offered locally and will provide death and disability coverage to the driver and passengers of the rental vehicle. The cost of personal accident insurance is between $8-$13 CAD per day. At this time we would like to advise you that optional insurances are available through select suppliers only and the costs noted above are subject to change without notice.
