* Rental insurance is not mandatory, but we do advise our clients to take out insurance as it can save you a lot of cost in case of damage to the rented equipment. Rental insurance covers up to €250 to damaged equipment. Severely damaged equipment above €250 will be analysed and the remaining costs will be charged to the client. Please note that the rental insurance only covers certain damages up to a certain amount. It does not cover in any case of loss (including theft) or misuse (negligence) of the equipment. In these cases all costs will be fully charged to the client.
