The insurance of the rented vehicle is immediately invalidated and canceled and the driver/hirer is held fully responsible and must pay all damages if any of the terms and conditions are not respected, honored and followed or damages are caused intentionally or are caused due to the driver/hirer has been driving the car irresponsibly and/or negligence.

The driver/hirer must make sure that the vehicle is returned in the same condition (including all equipment in it) as it was collected and with the same amount of fuel as it had upon collection (pick up). We advise you to take photos of the vehicle all around upon delivering (drop off) the vehicle back. Any damage not recorded upon the delivery (pick up) will be considered new and the driver/hirer will be held responsible and liable to pay for it. It is also required that the vehicle is returned (dropped off) with normal clean interior. If the vehicle interior is exceptionally dirty upon return or if there is damage to the seats, seat upholstery and carpets an additional charge for deep cleaning and repairs will be applied.
Occupied part of Cyprus
Insurances companies do not provide any insurance coverage for the rented vehicles travelling to the occupied northern part of Cyprus. Even if you purchase an extra insurance coverage from the check points or follow the reporting guidelines in case of an accident in the occupied northern part of Cyprus the insurance becomes invalid. Also A.AN. Economy Rent A Car Ltd is not able to provide you with support in the case of an accident or a breakdown. Therefore driving to the occupied northern part of Cyprus is done entirely at your own risk and you will be fully responsible for any accidents, damages, recovery or additional costs that may arise.
