3.5. If the hire is extended, the LESSEE must always have with him copies of the Agreement setting out the arrangement to extend the latter.

Any amounts pertaining to a bond or deductible owed for the hire, under the terms of the rate in force at the time of hire;
The sum of €70.00 (seventy Euros) plus VAT, in the event of any misplacement of the vehicle documents;
The amount owed for the vehicle refuelling service, whenever the latter is returned, upon termination of hire, with a fuel level lower than that of the delivery date, calculating this figure in proportion to the costs incurred by said refuelling;
The sum of €100.00 (one hundred Euros) plus VAT in the event of extra cleaning of the vehicle;
Any court and out-of-court costs, administrative fines, fines and other monetary sanctions, of whatever nature, deriving from a breach of any legal regulation attributable to the LESSEE during the hire period;

Any expenses and costs incurred by TURISCAR to obtain compliance by the LESSEE with the provisions of the Agreement, namely the collection of any amounts owed by the latter to TURISCAR, under those terms laid down by law;
Any damages or repair cost which has occurred owing to a crash, collision, overturning, theft or robbery of the vehicle and its immobilisation, as well as any hospitalisation and medical care costs of the driver and passengers, where applicable, and the liability of the LESSEE, if the vehicle has been used in accordance with the terms set out in the Agreement, may be limited if a deductible reduction service has been contracted beforehand;
3. 8. The LESSEE, to ensure compliance with his obligations under the Agreement, namely with regard to the fuel and deductible, shall provide a bond for the amount referred to in the Agreement, in cash up to a maximum of €80.00, certified cheque or payment card debit, specifically authorising TURISCAR to debit those amounts owed for all the costs incurred by the hire and related charges.
3.9. The bond shall be returned to the LESSEE as soon as the vehicle has been returned to TURISCAR and all the amounts owed by the former have been settled. However, if any amounts are left unsettled (including, additional days of hire, fuel expenses and/or deductible), TURISCAR shall use the bond, wholly or partially, to pay the same, without prejudice to legally claiming the amount still outstanding.
