The original receipts for the repair costs are to be presented to Canarymoto S.L. If the estimated repair costs exceed 100 euros, the consent of Canarymoto S.L. must be obtained before proceeding with the repair order. Repair of tyre damage is generally a matter for the rental payer. The liability of Canarymoto S.L. for non-fulfilment and default is limited to one-and-a-half times the rental price. Further claims are excluded, irrespective of the legal basis, unless the damage to the rental payer is due to intent or gross negligence on the part of Canarymoto S.L.

6. Liability of the driver for damage
The driver is liable to Canarymoto S.L. from take over until delivery of the motorbike, including slight negligence, with regard to loss (including the mislaying or confiscation of the motorbike), and for all damage (such as accident or operational damage, damage as a consequence of improper treatment and damage that constitutes a reduction in value) which goes beyond normal motorbike use during the rental period. In case of damage to the rented motorbike, the driver is liable for repair costs, recovery and return costs, technical expert costs, technical and commercial depreciation, loss of rental income during the repair period, or, in case of outright loss, during the period until replacement is rendered, actually incurred or established by way of expert appraisal.

The driver is furthermore liable for additionally borrowed accessories.

For every occurrence of damage, including damage or accidents that occur without the involvement of a third party, the driver is obliged to inform Canarymoto S.L. immediately by telephone. Towing and/or repair services should only be engaged after consultation with Canarymoto S.L. In the event of an accident, the police must be called immediately in all cases. Evidence (witnesses, physical evidence, etc.) is to be secured, the personal data of the persons involved recorded and all other steps taken which can contribute to establish a proper and complete appraisal of the events leading up to the accident.

The driver is committed not to sign any confession statement nor to perform any other actions (such as rendering payments or settlements) that could endanger the insurance cover.

a) The motorbike has an all-inclusive liability insurance cover for personal, property and pecuniary damage. The insurance sum is 50 million euros for third-party damage, whereby in the case of personal damage, the sum is limited to 8 million euros per injured person.
b) The rented motorbikes provided by Canarymoto S.L. are insured against damage, theft and fire. The driver is required to deposit the sum of 950 euros in cash or by credit card upon take over of the motorbike, as security. This will be returned in full as soon as the motorbike is returned undamaged to Canarymoto S.L.. Every instance of damage to the motorbike will be deducted from the security deposit up to the level of the excess sum.

The driver has to return the motorbike in the same condition at the end of the rental period at the agreed location and at the agreed date and time; complete with all motorbike papers, keys, tools and accessories. Replacement of lost tools, keys and/or papers will be payable by the driver at a cost of 100 euros each. If the motorbike is returned in a heavily soiled state, the driver will be required to pay the cost of cleaning the vehicle.

If the agreed return time is exceeded by more than two hours, the driver is obliged to pay a further day's rental charge in compensation. The driver retains the right to demonstrate that Canarymoto S.L. has incurred either no or a significantly lower degree of damage from the excess rental period.

Canarymoto S.L. may terminate the rental agreement without notice if important reasons arise that render a continuation of the rental agreement unreasonable. Examples of such important reasons would in particular be the rendering of false information by the rent payer regarding his person or his creditworthiness, and the severe violation of contractual obligations. In the case of immediate termination of the agreement, the rented motorbike has to be returned immediately, even if the regular rental period has not yet passed. This has no effect on any claims for compensation on the part of Canarymoto S.L..

10. Final Provisions

No supplementary agreements or amendments to this rental agreement have been made. All contractual agreements must be in writing. This also applies to the lifting of this clause.

Should any provision in this contract be or become wholly or partly ineffective, this will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The contract parties undertake to substitute ineffective provisions with regulations that come as close as possible to the commercial purpose of the ineffective provision.
