5.1.   Without derogating from the other Rental Terms, the Renter undertakes to pay Eldan the following payments according to the rates specified in the Agreement: rental fees, damages and theft coverage, Deductibles (as defined below), Excess Waiver coverage payments (if applicable), kilometer surcharge payment, drop-off fee (in the event of return of the Vehicle to a branch which is not the branch scheduled for the return of the Vehicle), Young Driver Extra Payment (as set out in the Agreement) for a Renter under the age of 24, New Driver Extra Payment (as set out in the Agreement) for a Renter holding a valid driver’s license for a period of less than two years, payments in respect of accessories or various extras as set out in the Agreement or as agreed with the Renter, including Ben Gurion Airport service charge (which shall be charged in the event of the Car’s delivery or return at Ben Gurion Airport). VAT on any payment set out above or any other payment shall be according to applicable law.

5.2.   The Renter received the Car with a full tank of fuel as per the quantity shown in the Agreement.

This supplement enables the Renter to return the Car with any fuel amount he so chooses without being charged for any Missing Fuel. It is hereby clarified Renter will in any event not be credited for the amount of fuel in the Car on return of the Car, whatever amount that may be. If the Car is replaced during the Rental Period, the purchase of the supplement shall be deemed to be canceled and the Renter shall be charged for fuel in accordance with the aforesaid in this Section 5.2 as if he/she had not purchased the said supplement in the first place.

5.3.   The Renter shall be solely liable for all charges, fines and legal expenses with respect to the use of the Car during the rental period, including with respect to traffic and parking violations or other offenses, use of toll roads or fast lanes and/or for any claim against Eldan or the Renter in respect of the use of the Car by the Renter during the rental period.

The foregoing should not be viewed as a recommendation for such direct engagement. Insofar as the Renter violates its obligations towards the toll road/fast lane operator, and/or insofar the Renter engages the toll road/fast lane operator directly and neglects to cancel its subscription at the end of the rental period, the Renter shall bear all relevant  charges, fines and legal expenses, in addition to the aforesaid service fee, even if the Renter is not the party who used the Car in such circumstances.

The Renter is required to ensure in advance that the credit card has a sufficient line of credit to provide the Security. Eldan may use the credit card, immediately and without prior notice, to perform any payment the Renter is required to make under the Agreement and the Rental Terms and/or under any applicable law. In the event that Eldan uses the Security as aforesaid, Eldan shall receive a new confirmation from the credit card company to fully reinstate the Security in Eldan’s favor, as if Eldan had not used the Security. Eldan shall notify the credit card company 45 working days following the termination of the rental period, of the release of the Security, unless the Car the Car is returned damaged or in the event that the Car’s accessories are found to be defective, missing, or damaged.

It is hereby clarified that the deposit shall be repaid in NIS regardless to the foreign currency in which it was paid, and in the event that the deposit was paid in a currency other than NIS, return of the deposit shall be made according to the exchange rate published by the Bank of Israel for that currency as it was known at the time of the initial delivery of the Car.

7.2.   The coverage granted by Eldan to the Renter with regards to third party damages is limited to an amount not exceeding NIS 600,000 per insurance event (hereinafter: the “Coverage Limit”) (irrespective of the amount of the third-party insurance policy actually purchased by Eldan).

7.5.   Limitation of the Renter’s liability (in accordance with Section 7.4.1 above) is contingent upon the Renter complying with all provisions of the Rental Terms and the provisions of the insurance policies.

7.7.   Renter shall be solely liable for any damages to tires and their accessories (including flat tires and the air pressure valve). In case of a flat tire, the Renter shall independently turn to a tire repair shop and bear the cost of fixing the flat tire directly. Insofar as the repair is performed by Eldan, the Renter will be charged the cost of repairing the flat tire according to Eldan’s pricelist from time to time. In the event of damage to the tire which requires its replacement, the Renter will independently turn to a tire repair shop and will bear the cost of replacing the tire. Insofar as the replacement of the tire is handled by Eldan, the Renter will be charged with the cost of the replacement of the tire plus a handling fee at the rate of 25% of such cost.

7.8.   It is hereby clarified that Eldan is not responsible and shall not bear any liability for damages and/or loss whatsoever to any contents and/or any property that was in the Car or stored in it and/or consequential damages arising therefrom, of any kind whatsoever, and the liability to cover such damages shall be borne solely by the Renter.

7.9.   The Renter may choose to purchase Excess Waiver coverage (EW), and in such case the Renter will be exempt from paying the Deductible but shall remain liable for Excluded Damages, the Third Party Coverage Difference (in accordance with Section 7.2 above), damage to tires, any accessories missing from the Car as were delivered to the Renter and damages caused as a result of use of the Car contrary to the terms of use set out in the Rental Terms, in respect of which the Renter shall bear all damage, loss, cost and expense caused to Eldan and/or any third party as a result thereof.

7.10.                    The Renter hereby irrevocably appoints Eldan and/or anyone on its behalf to be its authorized attorney in any legal or other proceeding in connection with the rental or the Agreement. The Renter appoints Eldan and/or anyone on its behalf to file in its name and stead any claim against a third party arising, directly or indirectly, from the rental of the Car, including damages caused to the Car or to the Renter or to any third party, if caused. Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, Eldan shall be entitled to compromise or to act in any manner which it may deem fit in its sole discretion with respect to any such claim, and any act performed by Eldan shall bind the Renter, without this having the effect of derogating from any obligation undertaken by the Renter according to the Agreement and/or the Rental Terms and/or under applicable law.

7.11.                    Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, in any case of damage caused at the fault of a third party, Eldan may, at its sole discretion, sue the third party for such damages and the Renter hereby authorizes Eldan to sue for the Deductible on his/her/its behalf. In such event, Eldan shall refund the Deductible to the Renter, provided that Eldan has been fully reimbursed for all of its damages and expenses. It is hereby clarified that the refund of the Deductible shall not be linked to any index and shall not carry any interest. In order to receive a refund in accordance with this section (insofar as Renter is so entitled), the Renter must contact Eldan in writing for the purpose of arranging such refund. It is clarified that receipt of the Deductible as aforesaid is subject to the Renter’s execution of an undertaking to indemnify Eldan, up to the amount of the Deductible, in the event that Eldan is sued and/or a third party demands that it compensates any third party in respect of the damages caused by the Renter.

7.12.     In any event wherein Eldan is required to compensate a third party for damages caused to such third party, and the amount Eldan paid to such third party, in addition to the compensation for Eldan’s damages and expenses, is lower than the amount of the Deductible which Eldan charged the Renter - the Renter shall receive a refund, in accordance with Section 7.11 above.
