Car rental extension requires a document form (e-mail, telephone) or written form as provided for in these Terms and Conditions.
  5. The Renter shall cooperate with the Car Rental Company with respect to the issues concerning settlement of the rental fee with the insurer of the perpetrator of the damage covered by the third-party liability insurance and shall submit to the Car Rental Company:

    4. a copy of the order for repair of the damaged vehicle issued by the car workshop performing the repair; 
    5. number of damage claim form sent to the insurer of the perpetrator.

    2. the insurer refuses to pay any compensation or refuses to pay compensation which is sufficient to cover the full rental fee and other charges under the Rental Agreement;
