The renter must not: 

- Pull other vehicles or objects with the car.

- Drive on dirt road, off-road (e.g. Balos), sand or water. Any damage that may happen offroad is not covered by any insurance.  No insurance covers damages that may happen while driving offroad or on dirt road/sand/water.  The penalty for driving off road is 300€.

Fuel Policy

The vehicle should be returned with the same fuel delivered since we believe this is the fairest policy. This information will be included in the rental contract. Otherwise, there will be a charge based on the current fuel price.

Also in case the car is returned with more fuel than the expected we do not refund.

The driving of the hired vehicle must be carried out in accordance with the Greek Law (illegal parking, speed limits etc) as applicable each time. Otherwise, the customer is held liable for causing problems concerning road safety and fines for illegal parking, speed limits etc. In case costumers wants Gomega to pay the fine on their behalf an extra fee of 25€ is applied.

Vehicle Condition 

The vehicle is delivered to the customer in good condition and free of visible defects. Any complaints must be submitted before the departure of the vehicle. During the rental period the renter is obliged to protect the car and the condition of the tyres. In case a car transport platform is necessary to collect the car from a dirt road/off road area or if the battery is dead because of renter’s fault (e.g. forgot to turn off the lights) the cost is 100€. 

In case of a damage which does not affect the function of the car e.g. broken window (rear and side windows) the customer has to drive to Gomega’s office to change the vehicle after contacting us to check availability. If the customer declines to come to our office for the car exchange and we have to move there a charge will be applied which will be dependent on the location of the car.

For each damage that may happen to the car the customer is also being charged 40€ for the damage procession.

Vehicle replacement

In the event of an accident, your vehicle will be replaced by a vehicle of the same or higher category within 24 hours. In case the damage of the car is because of renter negligence the company has the right not to replace the car.

Pets

In case you want to carry your pet with you, you have to use a pet transport box. Damages inside the vehicle from pets are not covered by any insurance and must be paid. Also renters must pay for cleaning the seats, which costs 80€.

Accidents

In the event of an accident (collision, fire, theft, etc.) the customer must notify the car rental company immediately in order to receive instructions on how to handle the situation. If you can not contact our company, you should contact the police(the telephone number is the following: 100). If the driver or any of the passengers is injured you should also inform the police/ambulance. In case the other party involved in the accident leaves, take a photo or write down the license plate. If the renter fails to provide the report to our company then he/she is obliged to pay for repair costs of any damage caused to the rented vehicle.

We renew our rental policy occasionally so please make sure that you read and agree with it.
