4. RENTAL PERIOD


4.1 Principle and Calculation

You undertake to return the Vehicle to CTS at the agreed place, on the date

and at the time indicated on the rental agreement.

The rental duration is calculated on the basis of indivisible periods of 24 hours,

starting from the time the Vehicle is made available. However, a 30 minute grace

period is applied at the end of the rental before the start of a new 24-Hour period.


4.2 Extension of the Original Duration of the Rental

Should you wish to keep the Vehicle for a period longer than that originally set out

in the rental agreement, you must first contact us by phone in order to extend the

duration of the rental agreement. The extension is a matter of availabilty of the

vehicle.


4.3 Delivery and Collection Terms

Where you ask CTS and we agree in writing to deliver the Vehicle or to collect

the Vehicle, you may have to pay additional charges and follow additional

instructions. You must check at the time of reservation.

When you return the Vehicle, or if CTS has agreed you will do so, when you

leave the Vehicle for collection by us, you must complete the details of the date

and time of return, the mileage and fuel gauge reading. You must also do anything

else, which CTS requests as a condition of agreeing to collect the Vehicle.

You must return the Vehicle immediately if CTS asks you to do so. In the

event that the Vehicle is not delivered to CTS upon request you hereby

authorise CTS to enter your premises and to do any and all other things

necessary to repossess the Vehicle. You will be liable for any costs associated with

such repossession. CTS may repossess any vehicle without notice or liability

where CTS deems that such repossession is necessary for its own protection.


4.4 End of Rental

The end of the rental is defined by the return of the Vehicle and of its keys to the

employee at the given location. This must be done to a CTS employee and

under no circumstances should you give the keys to any person else and who you

assume or who purports to be a CTS employee. If explicitly mentioned in

writing in the rental agreement the keys may be returned to the reception desk of a

hotel.

If the Vehicle is returned without its keys, you will be invoiced for the cost of the

replacement keys.

Under no circumstances will CTS accept any liability for articles that may have

been left in the Vehicle at the end of the rental.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Outside the normal opening hours, depositing the keys and documents in a letter

box does not constitute the end of the rental. You remain liable for any damages

until a CTS employee takes possession of the Vehicle, documents and keys

when the CTS location opens.

4.4.1

In the event of confiscation, theft or accident

In the event of measures by third parties, including attachment, confiscation or

impounding of the Vehicle, you must immediately inform CTS in writing and by

calling. CTS will then be entitled to take all measures which it deems

necessary to protect its rights. You will be liable for all damage, cost and/or

expenses associated with the above measures and for any direct, indirect,

consequential damages (such as loss...) to the Vehicle unless it is demonstrated that

CTS is directly responsible for such confiscation or impounding of the Vehicle.

Furthermore, the rental agreement may be automatically terminated as soon as CTS is

informed of such action by the legal authorities or by you.

Any use of the Vehicle which may be detrimental to CTS will entitle CTS

to automatically terminate the rental agreement with immediate effect. You will then

return the Vehicle immediately as soon as CTS so requests.

In the event of theft of the Vehicle, the rental agreement will be terminated as soon

as CTS has received a copy of the theft declaration made by you to the police

authorities. In the event of an accident, the rental agreement will be terminated as soon

as CTS has received a copy of the accident report completed by you and, where

applicable, the third party.

Police has to be informed and a copy of their accident report is to be handed to

us.

Furthermore CTS will have no responsibility for loss, theft, robbery or damage

of whatever nature relating to objects and/or utensils transported or which are found

in the Vehicle including, in particular, baggage and/or goods.


5. RATES / TERMS OF PAYMENT


5.1 Rates

The total charges for each rental will be determined according to the price list

applicable at the time of rental. If you do not meet the preconditions for a

contractual rate, then the standard rate is to be paid.


5.2 Terms of Payment

Prior to the start of the rental a deposit has to be made, either cash or with

Paypal.

Deposit for a car is 10.000php, for a motorcycle or scooter 5000php.

As an alternative, a tourist from a different country than the Philippines might leave his or her Passport

as a deposit. ID-Card is not valid for deposit.

When the Vehicle is returned, the invoiced amount will be charged to the deposit

provided, unless you present another means of payment. If the passport is used as the deposit, all costs of renting have to be paid before the passport can be returned.

In the event of non-payment by the due date shown on the invoice, you will be

liable, for payment of interest on the due amount in accordance with the details on

the invoice, if any.

Non-payment by due date of any invoice or any other non-payment will render all

outstanding invoices due immediately and will authorise CTS to require

immediate return of any vehicles still on rent and to terminate the agreements

relating to such rentals.

The tariffs applicable to the rental, to the additional services and to the optional

covers or insurances are those which are in force on the date of issue of the rental

agreement, and correspond to the characteristics you originally indicated at the timeof reservation (Vehicle type rental, duration, return station...). Any modification in the

characteristics will entail the use of an appropriate alternative tariff.

Should the Vehicle not be returned with a full fuel tank, you will be charged for the

missing quantity of fuel and for the refuelling service with 90php/ liter. Due to the

fact, that we do not accept credit cards and will not be able to charge any costs

after you returned the vehicle, the amount will be calculated by 0 1⁄4 1⁄2 3⁄4 of the fuel capacity of the car. IF the indicator is in between, it will always be the

lower amount! Refilling service has to be paid immediately with the return of the car either to be charged with the deposit provided or cash.


6. INSURANCE

All the vehicles in CTS fleet are insured on basic level.

In the Philippines that means almost NO COVERAGE!

Damage that you might inflict on a third party as a result of an accident involving

the Vehicle needs to be taken care by yourself!


6.1 Liability in the Event of Damage to the Rental Vehicle or Theft or Conversion

thereof

6.1.1 You will be liable for any damages to CTS when renting a Vehicle that

has been entrusted to you.

Therefore, in the event of theft of the Vehicle or damages caused to it, you must

fully indemnify CTS (the indemnification will include the amounts corresponding

to the repair costs, resale value of the Vehicle, loss of use, administration

charges...).

The amount will not exceed the market value of the rented vehicle at the time of

the event and will NOT EXCEED 200.000php including loss of use!

This liability may be reduced if you opted for the "reduced liability" plan as defined

in Article above.

Therefore, at the end of the Rental, IN THE EVENT OF DAMAGE OR THEFT, YOU

WILL BE DEBITED with a maximum as stated above. IN THE EVENT OF LIGHT

DAMAGE, YOU WILL BE DEBITED according to the provisions of section 6.1.2.

You will not be exempt from liability towards CTS! in the case of breach of

contract. Therefore, you will be responsible for any financial loss CTS suffers

as a result of such breach and for any relevant claims made by other people. You

agree to pay any amounts CTS spends in enforcing these terms.

THEREFORE IN ANY CASE, NEITHER CTS NOR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES WILL BE LIABLE TO THE CONTRACTING PARTY FOR ANY AMOUNTS NOR FOR ANY ACTIONS, LAW SUITS OR CLAIMS RELATED TO ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE DAMAGES (SUCH AS LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFIT) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE RENTAL OR THE USE OF ANY VEHICLE WHEHER THE ACTION IS BASED ON CONTRACT OR IN TORT. YOU WILL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD CTS HARMLESS FROM ALL CLAIMS, LIABILITIES, DAMAGES, LOSSES OR EXPENSES ARISING OUT OF THE RENTAL AND/OR THE USE OF THE VEHICLE.

If the loss suffered by CTS is subsequently reduced (recovery of the Vehicle

within 60 days, partial or total liability on the part of the Third party), you will

receive the corresponding reimbursement.

6.1.2 Light damage (valid only if applicable)

Both at check-out and check-in CTS will, joined with you, record in the rental

agreement all visible light damage to a vehicle.

At check-out unrepaired damage must appear on the rental agreement with the

appropriate signatures by you and CTS. At the end of the rental i.e., at

check-in, the identification of any new light damage must be added to the rental

agreement. Any new light damage will be immediately pointed out to CTS,

mentioned in the rental agreement, and signed by you and CTS. This damage

will be charged to you at the repair price stated by our mechanic. You will approve

by signing the relevant paper document.

These repair costs will be directly billed to you by CTS and will include the

cost of the damage repair as well as administration charges, immobilisation costs,

spare parts and labour costs. The above-mentioned invoiced repair costs are

payable under the same conditions as for the payment of the rental agreement.
