D. Pre-Conditions for Executing the Car Rental Transaction :

1. The Voucher.
2. A permanent Israeli driver's license in your name and in the name of any Additional Driver (issued in plastic with a photo).
3. An international driver's license in your name and in the name of any Additional Driver (a list of countries which permit driving with a computerized Israeli driver's license can be found on the website of the Ministry of Transportation. In any other country you are required to carry an international driver's license. Please note, even in countries that permit driving with a computerized Israeli drivers' license, the Car Supplier (as defined below) may require, at its discretion, that it be presented with an international driver's license and therefore we recommend that you obtain such an international driving license in any case).
4. An Israeli passport in your name and in the name of any Additional Driver.
5. An international credit card, in your name.

Please note that for car rentals in the USA the driver must present a European Driving License (an American Driving license will not be applicable).
The international credit card which you will be required to present at the time of pick-up of the car must be one of the credit cards listed in the Voucher under section: "Other Terms- accepted credit cards" (hereinafter:the "Credit Card"). The Credit Card shall be used to ensure the payments and supplements which you will be obligated to pay in addition to the car rental fees included in the Voucher. The Credit Card shall also serve as a deposit for the car rental company providing the rental car as specified in the Voucher (hereinafter: the "Car Supplier"). The minimum deposit amount will be equal to the deductible fees amount indicated in the Voucher under section: "Policies - CDW Excess/TP Excess" plus fuel costs and other charges which may apply in the Car Rental Transaction. Please note, you must verify in advance whether the Credit Card has a sufficient credit line for the deposit. The Car Supplier shall not accept as a form of payment and/or as a deposit any cash, checks or other means of payment, other than the Credit Card indicated in the Voucher. Please note, if you have ordered a luxury car, you may be required to present the Car Supplier with two Credit Cards as a deposit and such provision will be indicated in the Voucher.

In addition to the required certificates and documents mentioned above, at the time of pick-up of the car from the Pick-Up Station you shall be required to sign a car rental agreement with the Car Supplier with respect to the Car Rental Transaction (hereinafter: the "Car Rental Agreement").

  The presentation of the documents and certificates mentioned above and signing of the Car Rental Agreement
constitute a precondition to the execution of the Car Rental Transaction. Please note, if you shall fail to present any of the foregoing documents or certificates, or in case of discrepancy in your details or in those of any Additional Driver as indicated in the documents and approvals which you are required to present upon signing the Car Rental Agreement, or if you shall fail to sign the Car Rental Agreement - the Car Rental Agreement shall not be executed and this will be considered as a "No Show" on your behalf to the Pick Up Station. In such event, we will be entitled to charge you for No Show Fees at the rate indicated in the Voucher, under the section "Policies - No Show fees".

In addition, the Car Supplier may refuse to deliver a car to any person who does not meet the Car Supplier's rental policy, and this matter is subject to the Car Supplier's sole discretion. In the event that the Car Supplier refuses to execute the Car Rental Transaction and/or to deliver the car to you under the Car Rental Agreement, as specified above, we will not be responsible to arrange alternative means of transportation to you and your party, and shall not be liable to any other damage incurred by you or your party under such circumstances. In such an event the Car Rental Transaction shall be cancelled and we shall refund all payments we have collected from you.

From our experience, set out below are several typical cases in which the Car Supplier may refuse to deliver the car to you (there might be additional events):
1. If you arrive at the Pick-Up Station under the influence of alcohol or drugs or in any other state which according to the representative of the Car Supplier renders you unfit for driving; or if upon or about signing the Car Rental Agreement you have acted inappropriately;

2. If you have arrived at the Pick-Up Station in a medical state which restricts you from driving the car ordered by you, either temporarily (for example, broken limbs) or permanently (for example, disability). If such limitation exists we recommend that, you inform us in advance as soon as possible so we can verify with the Car Supplier if the Car Supplier will allow you the use of the car in your medical state (in case of a temporary disability) or if the Car Supplier may provide a car suitable to your needs (in case of a permanent disability) in order to avoid any unpleasantness and unnecessary damage;

3. If it is determined that you are listed in the blocked customers list of the Car Supplier or any of its affiliates (the "Black List"). Please note, if you have received notice from a car rental company of its refusal to rent you a car and/or of your inclusion in a Black List, we recommend that you notify us of this as soon as possible so we may ensure in advance that the Car Supplier will indeed provide you with the car you have ordered.


E. The Car Rental Agreement:

The Car Rental Transaction is subject to the terms of the Car Rental Agreement executed between you and the Car Supplier at the time of pick-up of the car, as described above. Please carefully read the terms of the Car Rental Agreement before signing it (the Car Rental Agreement is drafted in English). At your request we can provide you with a copy of the Car Rental Agreement in advance. In any event that, prior to signing the Car Rental Agreement, you shall find any discrepancy between the summary of terms of the Car Rental Transaction specified in the Voucher and those specified in the Car Rental Agreement, you are requested to notify us of this as promptly as possible and in any event before signing the Car Rental Agreement.

Please note, the Car Supplier bears the sole and exclusive responsibility for the execution of the Car Rental Transaction in accordance with and subject to the terms specified in the Car Rental Agreement. Ofran is not a contracting party to the Car Rental Agreement and does not assume any responsibility for its execution by the Car Supplier or for any malfunctions or other faults which are beyond its control (unless Ofran knew or should have known in advance of such malfunctions or faults).

We recommend that you keep a copy of the Car Rental Agreement and any other document related to the Car Rental Transaction, including documents pertaining the drop-off of the car, in case of future inquiry related to the Car Rental Agreement signed by you.

Set out below is a general description of the principles of the rental terms of the car rental agreement of most Car Suppliers with whom we engage. This general description is for convenience purposes only. For the removal of doubt the only binding terms with respect to the Car Rental Transaction are those specified in the Car Rental Agreement:

- The Rented Car:
The car type, manufacturer, model, year of manufacturing, engine capacity, trunk size and fuel type indicated in the Voucher are for illustration purposes only and are not guaranteed.

The Car Supplier may, under its discretion and in accordance with its current inventory at the time of pick-up of the car, deliver to you a car which according to the Car Supplier's definition is equivalent or of greater value to the Car indicated in the Voucher, or a Car in an equivalent car category or from a higher car category to the car category indicated in the Voucher.

- Pick-Up and Drop-Off of the Car:
The car will be reserved for you up to one hour after the Pick-Up time prescribed in the Voucher or until the closing time of the Pick Up Station (the earlier of the two). Please note, the closing time of the Pick-Up Station is indicated in the Voucher, however, the operating hours of the Pick-Up Station may vary due to holidays or local events. Please note, the Car Supplier is not obligated to wait for your arrival, and if you fail to arrive at the Pick-Up Station at the time indicated in the Voucher this may constitute a No-Show on your part. If you know of any expected delay in your arrival to the Pick-Up Station (such as a flight delay), we recommend that you inform us of this in advance, as soon as possible, so we can verify if you may pick up the car or alternatively so that we may try and assist you in finding a different reasonable arrangement with the Car Supplier (although we do not guarantee that we shall succeed in making such an arrangement). Please note, we will not be responsible for any damage incurred by you as a result of a late arrival to the Pick Up Station, if you fail to inform us of such expected delay immediately after becoming aware thereof.

Please note, if the car is delivered to you outside of the Pick Up Station's operating hours or is dropped off by you outside of the Drop-Off Station's operating hours, you will be charged an additional payment for such service in accordance with the rate indicated in the Voucher.

Upon picking up the car, you will be required to sign documents indicating the condition of the car at the time of its pick-up. We recommend that you check the car before leaving the Pick- Up Station and verify that if any damage to the car exists, these will be specified clearly in the Car Rental Agreement. If you drop-off the car outside the operating hours of the Drop-Off Station you shall be responsible for any damage incurred to the car until the car is collected by the Car Supplier.

In the event the car is dropped off unreasonably dirty, as determined solely by the Car Supplier, the Car Supplier may, charge you for special cleaning fees. Many Car Suppliers prohibit smoking in the car. In such an event, if you drop off the car with evidence of smoking (such as stubs, ashes, odor of smoke etc.) the Car Supplier may charge you for special cleaning fees.

- Restrictions of Age and Experience:
Most Car Suppliers require, as a precondition to the execution of the Car Rental Transaction, that the minimum age of the Renter and any Additional Driver be 21 years old. Please note, some Car Suppliers may also require, as a precondition to executing the Car Rental Transaction that the age of the Renter and any Additional Driver shall not exceed a particular maximum age. If your age or the age of any Additional Driver exceeds 70, we recommend that you verify in advance the Car Supplier's policy in this matter.

In addition, most Car Suppliers also require that the Renter and any Additional Driver shall have a minimum driving experience of 12 months.

The policy relating to the Renter's age and any Additional Drivers and the minimum driving experience they hold is determined by the Car Suppliers, at their sole discretion, and according to the legal restrictions applicable in the relevant country, such restrictions may vary from time to time, from country to country and from one car group to another. Also, certain Car Suppliers may charge additional payment for renting a car to a young driver (usually from the age of 21 and below the age of 25) or to a senior driver (usually above the age of 75). Therefore, you must verify in advance that your age meets the Car Supplier's policy with respect to the Renter's age.


- Fuel:
In most cases, the car shall be delivered to you with a full tank of fuel. Accordingly, you shall be required to return the fuel tank in the same condition as it was delivered to you. In case of fuel shortage in the tank when the car is returned, you will be charged according to the rate determined by the Car Supplier at its sole discretion, in addition to special refueling fees. We recommend that you keep the last fueling receipt and the car Drop Off report which will be filled when dropping off the car for any case of future inquiry in this respect.

In cases where you shall purchase a prepaid fuel tank, no refund will be given for unused fuel by you.

In any event, we recommend that upon pick-up of the Car you shall check the fuel gauge in the car in order to ensure that the condition of the fuel tank is consistent with that specified in the Car Rental Agreement.

Please note, in the event that you shall refuel the car in violation of the manufacturer's instructions specified on the sticker on the fuel tank inlet cover, the Car Supplier shall charge you for the costs of repair of any damage incurred to the car as a result of this, including any incidental expenses (as well as costs of towing and repair and out of use fees). Such damage is not covered under the insurance coverage you shall procure. It is under your sole responsibility to verify the appropriate type of fuel for the car.

Please note, when driving in areas where it is expected to ice or snow you should be prepared in advance with an "Antifreeze" fuel liquid.


- Travelling between Countries:
There may be restrictions in the Car Rental Agreement on crossing borders outside the country of the Pick-Up Station. The Voucher may include limitations with respect to traveling between countries under section "Other Terms- Border crossing information". In any event, if you decide to cross borders outside of the country in which you picked- up the car, it is your responsibility to inform our reservation center, and alternatively receive the Car Supplier's approval, under the Car Rental Agreement, for your expected travel route. Please note, if you fail to act in accordance with the foregoing, some of the insurance coverages specified in your Voucher may not be valid. Likewise, if you wish to cross borders, during the rental period, the Car Supplier may charge you with an additional amount, including border crossing fees between certain countries.

- Satellite Navigation System (GPS):
In the event that the terms of the Car Rental Transaction include a satellite navigation system, it is clarified that we cannot guarantee that the navigation system be of a certain type (including whether mobile or fixed). There is a wide variety of satellite navigation systems.

In any event, it is your responsibility to return the navigation system you received in a good and intact condition on all its parts. In case you return the navigation system in an improper condition or with parts missing, you will be charged for repair costs of the satellite navigation system up to the deductible fees rate prescribed in the Car Rental Agreement for such item.

The maps included in the navigation system are usually suitable for only the country in which the Pick-Up Station is situated. If you intend to cross borders outside of the country of the Pick-Up Station and you wish to make use of a navigation system, we recommend to verify with the Car Supplier, at the time of picking up the car, the scope of the maps included in the navigation system.

Please note, we are not responsible for any damage incurred as a result of malfunctions or faults in the satellite navigation system, or the improper use of this system. We recommend that when picking up the car, you should check the proper function of the navigation system and ensure that you know how to operate it, and that for any query on the matter, you should contact the Car Supplier before beginning your drive.

- Mechanical Problems:
It is the responsibility of the Car Supplier to provide you with a car in a general proper condition without any faults or defects (except those listed by the Car Supplier at the time of picking up the car). However, during the rental period, mechanical problems may occur in the car. In any event of malfunction as aforesaid (including in the event of a display of a warning light in the car) or any other problem during the rental period of the car, you must notify the Car Supplier and/or the roadside assistance services of the Car Supplier directly and immediately, and act according to their instructions (usually the contact numbers of the Car Supplier and/or the roadside assistance services appear in the Car Rental Agreement and/or on the rental car key chain.

In case of a mechanical problem in the car, the Car Supplier shall handle your request or guide you on how to operate, all in accordance with its procedures and discretion. Please note, if the Car Supplier offers you a car replacement, there is no guarantee that the car replacement to be offered to you will be of the same car group ordered by you.

Please note, although Ofran is not responsible for mechanical problems or malfunctions in the car (unless Ofran knew or should have known of them in advance), if you contact us immediately upon first becoming aware of the mechanical problem, we will try to assist you in finding a reasonable solution with the Car Supplier (however we do not guarantee that we shall succeed in making such an arrangement). In certain events, the Car Supplier may offer you a refund of direct expenses incurred by you in repairing the mechanical problems in the car (such as hotels, trains, flights, renting a more expensive car, telephone calls etc.) however, such refund requires the expressed approval of the Car Supplier or of Ofran. Without a prior written approval as aforesaid no refund, compensation or differences will be paid to you.

- Flat Tire and Other Tire Damages
A flat tire or other tire damage does not constitute a mechanical problem and the repair of these damages is under your sole responsibility. In the event of a flat tire or other damage to the car's tires, the Car Supplier is not obligated to send towing services and is not obligated to provide you with a car replacement. Please note, according to international regulations, it is not mandatory to have a spare tire in the car, only a temporary repair kit is required until the tire is replaced. Moreover, in certain countries, such as the UK, according to the national regulations, the car rental companies do not equip the car with a spare tire or a temporary repair kit, and operate a designated flat tire repair road service team.
Therefore, in countries in which the car is equipped with a spare tire or a temporary repair kit, we recommend that when picking up the car you verify the location of the spare tire and how to replace it or alternatively, you verify that you know how to operate the temporary repair kit. Please note, if the car includes a spare tire, this tire might be smaller than the remaining tires. Immediately after replacing the tire which was damaged with the spare tire or temporarily repairing the damaged tire, you must drive to a suitable garage in order to repair the flat tire. In countries in which the car is not equipped with a spare tire or a temporary repair kit (such as the UK), we recommend you will verify the contact methods with the designated road service team. We will not be responsible for any damage incurred to you as a result of any flat tire or tire damage caused to the car tires as aforesaid.

- Accidents
In any event of an accident, you must report this directly and immediately to the Car Supplier and to the local police. We recommend that you do so even if you believe no damage was incurred to the car. According to the Car Supplier's guidelines, you will have to complete a damage report and deliver it to the Car Supplier, and you will also be required to cooperate with the Car Supplier and act according to its directions. If you fail to act accordingly, the Car Supplier may charge you for damages incurred to it as a result.

Please note, if an accident is caused by your negligence or in any other circumstances in which the insurance coverage of the insurer is excluded, you shall be responsible for all the damages incurred to the Car Supplier.

Please note, in case of an accident the Car Supplier is not obligated to provide you with a car replacement. Although Ofran does not bear any responsibility for damages resulting from accidents, if you contact us on the matter we will try to assist you in finding a reasonable solution with the Car Supplier (although we do not guarantee that we shall succeed in making such an arrangement).

- Traffic Laws, Fines and Surcharges:
Traffic laws vary from country to country and it is your sole responsibility to verify these laws in every country you wish to use the car and to comply with them. According to the Car Rental Agreement, you bear the sole and exclusive responsibility to any damage incurred as a result of the failure to uphold the traffic laws of the country in which you are using the car or as a result of any violation of such laws. Please note, in certain countries there is an exclusion to the insurance coverage due to failure of upholding traffic laws, thus if damage is caused due to such failure or your violation of such traffic laws, the insurance coverage shall not apply. We recommend that you verify in advance what are the traffic laws in each country as mentioned above.

Payment of traffic fines and parking tickets, including special handling fees collected by the Car Supplier, road tolls, government surcharges, stickers for traveling on highways which can be purchased at border stations (for example in, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Slovenia, etc.), stickers for "green" traveling in city centers etc., are usually not included in the Voucher and it is under your sole responsibility to pay such fines and tickets and/or to verify the need for the required stickers and purchase them in the relevant countries where you will use the car. Please note, fines and tickets charged upon you, which are not paid by you during the rental period, will be sent to you, in most cases, by the Car Supplier or directly by the relevant authority. We are not responsible for the delivery, non-delivery or delays in delivery of such fines and tickets and are not responsible for any doubled fine or any other payments charged upon you for any such delay.

- Insurance Policies:
The terms of the insurance coverage included in the Car Rental Transaction are those specified in the Car Rental Agreement. The types of insurance coverage included in the Car Rental Transaction are indicated in the Voucher; however the terms of the insurance coverage included in the Car Rental Transaction and the exclusions of the insurance coverage vary from one Car Supplier to another and from country to country and there might be substantial differences between them.

Therefore, you must verify in advance that the type of insurance coverage indicated in the Voucher, as well as the insurance terms and the exclusions thereof, meet your needs. In addition, we recommend that you check with the Car Supplier upon picking up the car or prior to that what are the exclusions to the insurance coverage included in the Car Rental Transaction.

Below are the details of the main types of insurances customary among the various Car Suppliers:


North America (U.S.A. and Canada)

- LDW Insurance (Loss Damage Waiver) or CDW (Collision Damage Waiver)

This type of coverage covers property damages to the rental car during the rental period, including theft.

In any event of damage as aforesaid you may be charged deductible fees in the amount prescribed in the Voucher under the section "Policies- CDW Excess/TP Excess", even if the damage was caused by a third party and not at your fault. If the damage was caused by a third party, we recommend that you update the Car Supplier of this and act according to its instructions. In some cases, if you follow the Car Supplier's instructions and the Car Supplier determines that the damage was not your fault, the deductible fees might be returned to you by the Car Supplier.

- Third Party Insurance

This type of insurance covers the liability of the Renter to property damage and/or personal injury which might be caused by a third party during your use of the car.

Third party insurance included in the Car Rental Agreements in North America provides only minimum coverage to the car renter or to additional drivers listed in the Car Rental Agreement. Therefore, we recommend that you purchase through us or the Car Supplier an extended coverage to the insurance coverage. This extension is called SLI - Supplement Liability Insurance or EP- Extended Protection.

Please note, this insurance does not include insurance coverage in case of personal injuries to the driver or to the passengers of the car or to their personal property. Therefore, we recommend that you separately purchase an appropriate insurance coverage to meet your needs, or alternatively verify with the Car Supplier, at the time of picking up the car, which additional insurance coverages are offered by it for that purpose.

Europe and the Rest of the World

- CDW/LDW Insurance - (Collision Damage Waiver or Loss Damage Waiver)

This type of coverage covers the liability of the Renter in case of property damage to the car during the rental period, excluding theft.

In most cases and destinations, you will be charged deductible fees in case of damage to the car in the amount prescribed in the Voucher under section "Policies - CDW Excess", even if the damage was caused by a third party and not at your fault. If the damage was caused by a third party, we recommend that you update the Car Supplier of this and act according to its instructions. In some cases, if you follow the Car Supplier's instructions and the Car Supplier determines that the damage was not your fault, the deductible fees might be returned to you by the Car Supplier.

- TP Insurance (Theft Protection)
This type of insurance covers the liability of the car renter in case of theft of the rental car or parts thereof or in case of damage to the rental car due to attempted theft or parts thereof.

In most cases and destinations, you will be charged deductible fees in case of theft or an attempted theft, in the amount prescribed in the Voucher under section "Policies- TP Excess".

- Third Party Insurance
In most cases and destinations, this type of insurance is included in the CDW coverage mentioned above. However, please note, this insurance does not cover personal injury to the driver and the passengers or to their personal property. In addition, in certain jurisdictions (e.g., South Africa), the coverage proposed to be included in such insurance may contain various limitations prescribed by local law (such as: limitations on the account of coverage, the coverable events and more). Therefore, we recommend that you separately purchase an appropriate insurance coverage to meet your needs, or alternatively verify with the Car Supplier, at the time of picking up the car, which additional insurance coverages are offered by it for such purpose.

- Super CDW Insurance
This type of coverage entitles the Renter to a full exemption from deductible fees in case of damage to the rental car (excluding administration fees which will be collected directly by the Car Supplier regardless of the type of damage). Please note, similar insurance coverages may be offered, occasionally, by insurance companies or other third parties. Therefore, if the Voucher includes Super CDW insurance you should ensure that you do not purchase similar insurance coverages. No refund shall be given for multiple insurances.

- Super TP Insurance
This insurance coverage entitles you to an exemption from deductible fees in case of car theft (excluding administration fees which shall be collected directly by the Car Supplier). Please note, a similar insurance coverage may occasionally be offered by insurance companies or other third parties. Therefore, if the Voucher includes Super TP insurance you should ensure that you do not purchase a similar insurance coverage. No refund shall be given for multiple insurances.
Important Notes Applicable to All Insurance Coverages-
1. It is important that you review the terms of the insurance coverages included in the Voucher, their restrictions and exclusions. The insurance coverages offered by the Car Suppliers are restricted and their terms are subject to the terms of the Car Rental Agreement and the exclusions detailed therein.

In general, insurance coverages for car damage will be excluded in different cases including (but without limitation) in cases of damage to the car caused by a willful act, due to the use of the car by an unauthorized driver, due to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, due to forbidden use of the car such as driving on unpaved roads, due to subletting the car to a third party, due to negligent use of the car, due to failure to comply with local traffic laws or due to violation of the Car Rental Agreement by you (for example failure to return the car at the end of the rental period).

Furthermore, please note that these insurance coverages usually do not cover damages incurred to the lower chassis of the car, clutch, upholstery or window panes, damages to the tires or repair of flat tires and any related expenses, towing fees or spare key costs as well as damages incurred to the content of the car or of its passengers.

Insurance coverage for theft may include exclusion in circumstances in which the theft was enabled due to the Renter's negligence and in such event the Car Supplier may charge you with the full value of the car.

There might be additional exclusions to the insurance coverages offered by the Car Suppliers which vary from one supplier to another. Therefore we recommend you check with the Car Supplier at the time of picking up the car, or beforehand, which exclusions apply to the insurance coverage under the Car Rental Agreement.

Please note, as a pre-condition to the insurance coverage you are required to report immediately of any theft, damage or other insurance event incurred to the car during the rental period to the local police and to the Car Supplier and to present substantiating documents of such event. You must follow the instructions of the Car Supplier and the local police in any such event and must fully cooperate with them.

2. The terms of the Car Rental Transaction do not include medical insurance and/or personal injury or property damage insurance to you, to any Additional Driver and/or to the passengers of the rental car, including with respect to damages resulting from a car accident which may have occurred during the use of the rental car. Therefore, you must ensure to independently purchase an insurance coverage in accordance with the terms of the insurance coverage to meet your needs.

In any event, we will not be responsible for personal injury and/or property damage incurred to you, to any Additional Driver and all other passengers of the rental car.

3. The terms of the Car Rental Transaction do not include any insurance coverage for the period exceeding the duration of the rental period. Therefore, we recommend that you purchase separately an insurance coverage that meets your needs.

4. When signing the Car Rental Agreement, the Car Supplier may offer you additional insurance coverages, some of which might be included in the Voucher. It is your responsibility to ensure whether such insurance coverages are included in the Voucher or not. Please note, if under the Car Rental Agreement you shall purchase additional insurance coverages, you will be solely and exclusively responsible for the costs of such coverages and you shall not be entitled to any refund from Ofran with respect to the purchase of such additional coverages as mentioned above, even if such coverages provide similar or overlapping insurance coverages to those included in the Voucher.

F. Excess Refund

Upon making a reservation for a Car Rental Transaction, you may purchase through us an insurance coverage which provides a retroactive refund of the deductible fees charged to you, if any will be charged by the Car Supplier in accordance with the terms of the Car Rental Agreement (hereinafter: the "Deductible Fees"). This insurance coverage is prepared by "Harel" insurance company and is subject to the terms of the policy issued by Harel alone (hereinafter: the "Insurance Policy"). A copy of the Insurance Policy can be found on: http://www.ofran.co.il/980-11339-he/Tips.aspx. Please note, this Insurance Policy does not cancel in advance the Deductible Fees but rather provides, under and subject to the terms of the Insurance Policy, a full retroactive refund of the Deductible Fees, if such were charged by the Car Supplier, and in the event of damage to the car or theft of the car, including administrative fees. The maximum coverage amount that this Insurance Policy provides is $2000. It is important for you to know that the Insurance Policy only provides insurance as long as the terms of the Car Rental Transaction and the procured insurance coverage are not violated by you, for example due to negligence by you, and the Insurance Policy does not entitle you to any refund under circumstances where one of the exceptions prescribed in the Insurance Policy apply or in circumstances where the Car Supplier has charged you for damage payments which exceed the Deductible Fees.

Upon receiving the Voucher, we will enclose an appendix for your review which contains the principles of the Insurance Policy as well as important instructions on how to activate it. It is important you review such instructions upon receiving them. This appendix was prepared by us for convenience purposes only and in any case of discrepancy between the provisions of the appendix and the Insurance Policy, the provisions of the Insurance Policy shall prevail.

Please note, some of the Car Suppliers or third parties offer insurance coverages of their own with an exclusion or excess refund of deductible fees. Therefore if you have purchased such insurance coverage through us, you should ensure that you do not purchase the same coverage from the Car Supplier or from any third party an insurance coverage for exclusion or excess refund of deductible fees. There shall be no refund for multiple purchased insurances.

G. Taxes

The amounts stated in the Voucher regarding the supplements intended to be paid upon picking up the car and which are not included in the price of the Car Rental Transaction, do not include VAT or other local mandatory payments.

H. The Car Rental Period

The car rental period stated in the Voucher is calculated on a 24-hour unit basis. In any event of delay or change in dropping off the rental car, you must update us or the Car Supplier accordingly. In any event of delay in dropping off the car or extending the rental period exceeding the number of days stated in the Voucher or exceeding the hour stated under section "Drop off time", if the delay extends beyond the Grace Period indicated in the Voucher, the Car Supplier will charge you the additional fee in accordance with the local pricelist of the Car Supplier (which might be higher than the rental fees agreed between you and Ofran) plus insurance coverage costs, VAT charges and other local mandatory charges. Such payment shall be collected for full rental days without the option of payment for part of a rental day.
