In case of going abroad with the car all accommodation and daily allowances and all material expenses shall be paid by Renter. Upon the conclusion of the contract Renter shall pay a caution in accordance with the contract. This caution shall serve as a security to cover any damages caused by the Renter to EUrent. At the end of the rent the caution shall be paid back except when Renter had caused any damages or had failed to meet any of his/her liabilities. EUrent is not obliged to pay back the security until there is any open question regarding any damage liability or any other outstanding debts of Renter. EUrent shall not pay interest after the caution. In case of credit card payment the amount of the caution will be pre-authorised on Renter’s account with Renter’s consent on the basis of a prior permission request sent to EUrent’s accepting bank. If the caution is not used EUrent shall, upon the termination of the rental contract notify the bank in writing to release the pre-authorised amount.

If it is proven that Renter did not use the fuel type prescribed for the car, he/she shall pay for all damages resulting from this and also for the fuel replacement costs.
10.) Minimum period of rent is one day. One rental day consists of 24 hours starting at the time of the car’s receipt as shown overleaf. A further rental day shall be charged if the rent is extended by additional hours or if the car is returned later than at the expiry of the rental period. Renter acknowledges that in case he/she returns the rented vehicle at the end of the rental period in a way inconsistent with the rental conditions, that is, not during business hours, then the vehicle’s status will be assessed and the contract will be closed during working hours in the workday following the vehicle’s return; Renter may be present at these occasions. Renter waives the right to contest the conclusions made in his absence about the vehicle’s status and in the contract’s closing, and acknowledges his/her obligation according to Article 6 to pay and his/her liability to pay damages for any claims determined during the status assessment in his/her absence, and EUrent is entitled to collect such amounts from Renter in ways identical to those of the collection of the rental fee, even following the termination of the contract.
11.) Renter shall return the car at the place and time indicated overleaf in the “Agreed place and time of returning” heading, during regular working hours, in a condition identical to the receipt condition except for normal wear.

If Renter intends to continue using the car this intention shall be communicated personally to EUrent at least 24 hours before the expiry of the rent, with the payment of any necessary caution. EUrent is not obliged to extend the rent. In case of a lease the contract has to be extended on the day shown in the contract, with the showing of the car to EUrent. If Renter breaches the rental contract or if Renter fails to return the car within 24 hours from the time of expiry of the rent without a good reason EUrent is entitled to terminate the contract immediately and/or to take back the car from Renter, using force, if necessary. Similarly, EUrent is entitled to terminate the contract and take back the vehicle from Renter if Renter fails to settle his/her outstanding debts towards EUrent in spite of EUrent’s written notice. Parties agree that if Renter does not return the car used by him/her within 24 hours from the expiry of the rental contract and fails to extend the rental contract or fails to provide a good reason for his/her delay then EUrent may rightfully think that Renter had committed the crime of speculation in violation of Article 317 of the Civil Code of Law and EUrent is entitled to report him/her to the police or to have the car searched for. EUrent may do the same if there are other circumstances that serve as a suitable basis for his suspicion. In case Renter uses the vehicle owned by EUrent to commit illegal crimes by e.g. smuggling illegal products (cigarettes, alcohol, etc.) to abroad or to Hungary, and the competent customs authority or any other competent authority (hereinafter together referred to as: authority) seizes the vehicle, this constitutes such a material breach of contract on the Renter’s part which terminates the contract automatically. The contract shall terminate on the day when EUrent receives the authority’s resolution ordering the seizure. In case the authority ordering the seizure releases the vehicle from seizure, Renter shall not be eligible for further use of the vehicle. In case the authority does not release the vehicle from seizure but sells it, then Renter shall pay full damages (up to the value of the vehicle) to EUrent.
12.) If - in case of returning the car abroad - Renter does not return the car at the office indicated in the “Agreed place and time of returning” heading or if he returns it there but this office is not the same as where he/she rented the car from then Renter shall pay a re-transportation fee on the basis of the actual tariffs, calculated from site to site.
13.) When the odometer reaches the value indicated in the “Revision” heading of the contract Renter shall have a technical revision performed on the car at the place and time indicated by EUrent.

14.) In case of a technical fault Renter is obliged to:
- ask for the proper measures in Budapest at phone number (1) 421 8333 on workdays and at phone number (1) 421 8370 on weekends and public holidays;

In the event of failure to do so, EUrent passes the repair costs onto Renter. If Renter has paid for the repair in cash he/she shall hand over the invoice (including VAT amounts, and the value shown by the odometer). On the basis of this invoice the renting office will pay the invoice amount or – if Renter is a legal entity – transfer to amount to Renter’s account.

17.) All traffic events related to the car (e.g. light crashes, glass damages, loss of car, etc.) shall be reported to the renting office within 24 hours. In case of an accident or technical fault Renter shall – after prior agreement, at EUrent’s cost – ensure the car’s safe placement and guarding.
18.) Renter is obliged to inform EUrent about each and every events related to parking offences committed with the rented vehicle (imposition of traffic fine, demand for payment of additional parking charge, etc.), as well as about traffic offences committed by him/her and events subject to administration penalty. Renter accepts and expressly approves that EUrent shall be entitled to collect from Renter the expenses arising from possible parking offences committed by Renter (fines, additional charges, etc.), as well as possible administration penalties, on a way similar to the collection of rental fee, also after the expiration of the rental period.
19.) Renter agrees that his/her data will be managed by EUrent within the scope of the law and if necessary, - when administrative penalty is imposed, parking fees, and/or additional parking charges are to be collected or data of a traffic offender are requested by the authority – be provided for the competent party.
20.) All rental vehicles possess electronic permission valid for an unlimited number of travels on the Hungarian motorways.
21.) In case of high value damages caused by Renter, write-off, theft or an accident caused by Renter where the repair costs exceed HUF 500 000 EUrent reserves the right to charge a 10 percent own risk or a rate of liability for damage – based on the repair invoice or the insurer’s settlement, or on an Audatex calculation, or purchase invoice – to Renter even after the rent was closed. In the cases indicated above, the value of the car to be considered as the basis for calculating the own risk and the rate of liability for damage, respectively, means the gross purchase price of the car. In case of theft of the rented car, EUrent is entitled to charge a refuelling fee of one tank, because the stolen car has been given with full tank to the Renter according to the 26. paragraph of these General Terms and Conditions.
