Hopefully, you will have taken the damage-theft waiver for €3.50 when booking which reduces your Excess from €1,500 to €350. This is because the renter is liable for damage as a result of theft as well as all other damage, however, caused, inflicted, or caused to the rented vehicle, regardless of whether it is the result of the fault of the renter or third parties. Report the damage to the rental location. The damage will be recorded and you will receive a payment link from E-Xplore Algarve to pay as you did when booking the E-Chopper. Download the European damage form here: You can use this form if you have caused damage to third parties and it is important for your insurance.
