What options of insurance coverage does Solo Rent a Car offer?
You can choose additional insurance coverage when booking a car online, and also arrange it when you receive a car. You can also reduce partially or completely the amount of responsibility for damage to a rented car.

The purchase of additional insurance coverage remains at your discretion. Be careful signing a rent agreement: recalculation of the rent cost or refund of money for additional insurance coverage and services mentioned in it after signing it is not allowed.
Caution! Insurance coverage is valid only if the driver has applied to the police for a drawing up protocol (police report) on the incident (the rule applies even with the slightest damage to the car)! The rule does not work if the incident occurred due to the customer's fault: an accident in the state of alcohol / drug intoxication, car theft as a result of the loss of keys, negligent attitude towards the car, etc. The most popular type of additional coverage is Super Collision Damage Waiver (SCDW) called as “Premium Plus”.
