22) WHAT IS MY LIABILITY IN CASE OF A DAMAGE?
The renter is liable for repair costs for accident damage, loss, theft or improper operation of the vehicle or impairment of contractual obligations according to clauses 2, 6 and 14 of these conditions, in case of a write- off for the replacement value of the vehicle less the residual value. The renter is also liable for any consequential damage, particularly reduced value, towing costs, fees for technical experts and a fee for administration costs. The renter is not liable if neither the renter nor the driver is responsible for the damage.
If an exemption of liability is agreed against payment of an additional sum, then Europcar exempts the renter for damage to the rental vehicle in accordance with the principles of vehicle damage (collision) insurance based on the relevant valid sample conditions of the AK (general conditions for vehicle insurance in Serbia) with subsequent deductible excess plus a cost lump sum of EUR 29,50. The liability exemption covers accident damage, i.e. through an incident acting suddenly from outside with mechanical force; brake damage, operational damage and pure fracture damage do not count as accident damage. The exemption of liability does not therefore cover in particular damage, which occurs due to improper treatment and/or operation, for example through incorrect gear changing or filling the wrong fuel, or though loaded goods. The deductible access for each damage is depending from the Vehicle category (for driver younger than 23 years the deductible is at least EUR 1200,00):

*VAT not included
A list of the deductible excess applicable for the relevant vehicle is available at the place of conclusion of the contract. These deductible excesses only apply when no different individual agreement has been made.
The exemption of liability does not release the renter from the contractual obligations under clauses 2, 6, 14 of these conditions. The renter is fully liable in case of intentional infringement of the contractual obligations, particularly for damage, which occurs due to an unauthorised driver (clause 2) or due to a forbidden use (clause 6). If the renter has intentionally fled the scene of an accident or infringed obligations under clause 14, the renter is also fully liable, unless the infringement has no effect on the assessment of the damage incident. In case of grossly negligent infringement of a contractual obligation, the renter is liable in the proportion of the extent of the fault of the renter. The renter is also fully liable for intentionally caused damage. If damage is caused through gross negligence, liability is in proportion to the fault of the renter.
If cover for fire and theft is concluded, the renter is liable particularly for damage to glass, damage caused by game animals, fire and the elements with a deductible excess of EUR 160,00 per claim plus a cost lump sum of EUR 29,50.
