1.- BASIC DRIVER INFORMATION:
When picking up the vehicle, both the main driver and additional drivers must present their valid original driving license (category B) throughout the rental period. We can only accept original documents or, alternatively, the electronic driving license provided by the DGT through their "mi dgt" application.
You can download the application at the following link: https://sede.dgt.gob.es/es/appmidgt/
Please note that the electronic driving license only authorizes you to drive within the Spanish territory. If you plan to drive in other countries, you must have the physical original license with you.
You will be able to rent one of our vehicles as long as you meet the following conditions:
You must be at least 21 years old and under 85 years old, and possess a valid driver's license for the entire rental period. For vehicle groups: A-AS-B-BH-C-CS-VA-VB-VC-VD, the driver must have a minimum of 2 years of driving experience. For other vehicles, the driver must be over 23 years old with the same requirements of driving experience and validity. If you or any of the drivers are under 23 years old, each one will have to pay an additional young driver surcharge. The cost of this surcharge is €14.60 including VAT, per day and per driver. If you rent the vehicle for more than 10 days, you will only be charged a maximum of 10 days, and the full coverage will apply for the remainder of the contract, up to a maximum of 30 days.
You may drive one of our vehicles if you have a valid driver's license issued in any country of the European Union or the European Economic Area (Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway). You may be required to present your driver's license accompanied by the International Driving Permit if your document has been issued outside the EU. This requirement applies specifically to drivers from the United States, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

At the pick-up office, you must inform them about crossing the border. You are only allowed to use the vehicle in the following countries:

Vehicles are not authorized to circulate on any island of the mentioned countries.

3.-USE OF THE VEHICLE:
The driver must use the vehicle with due care and skill. Use the vehicle according to the current regulations of the country you are driving in. Use the vehicle lawfully and for legal purposes. Use the correct fuel. Close the vehicle when not in use and ensure that all doors, windows, sunroof, removable roof, or detachable cover are securely closed. Keep the vehicle key under control at all times. The loss of the key is not covered by any insurance provided by RTK50. If such loss occurs, you must immediately notify our headquarters or, alternatively, the 24-hour roadside assistance phone number so that the car can be retrieved and kept at RTK50's facilities or the assistance company's facilities. If the loss of the key consequently leads to the theft of the vehicle, RTK50 may consider it misuse and therefore may demand the full amount of damages caused, including the value of the vehicle. The vehicle must not be used for commercial purposes, any form of motor sports, recreational or professional, off-road driving, towing another vehicle or trailer, transporting inflammable, explosive, corrosive, or combustible substances, except for essentially mineral oils permitted by current legislation. The primary driver must not allow any other person who is not listed in the rental agreement to drive the vehicle.
4.-ACCIDENTS AND THEFT
In case of an accident or theft, you must immediately notify the Police and us within 24 hours if the vehicle has been involved in an accident or has suffered a breakdown, even if there are no third parties involved. If you lose the vehicle, it is stolen, or it is damaged, you must, as stipulated by law, pay the excess specified in the rental agreement, any taxes, and our accident, theft, or damage management fees. We will try to recover the excess and other expenses from the opposing party, if applicable, provided that you can demonstrate that the damage, theft, or loss is not your fault and is not due to deliberate non-compliance, fraud, or gross negligence on your part. You are not liable for any charges for loss or damage to the extent attributable to our failure to maintain the vehicle or the manufacturer's warranty coverage.
Your excess will not be valid if the loss or theft is due to (I) deliberate fraudulent action, omission, or gross negligence on your part, (II) deliberate breach of the conditions, (III) damages caused to the interior of the vehicle, except for those resulting from natural wear and tear of materials, (IV) damages to tires and wheels of the vehicle, including punctures or blowouts not attributable to their poor condition, (V) damages to the underside of the vehicle caused by driving off streets, lanes, roads, highways, or freeways, (VI) damages to the roof of the vehicle due to attempting to enter low-clearance areas, (VII) loss of key. If your excess is not valid, we will have the right to claim damages for an amount equivalent to the severity of the negligence, up to the total amount of damages or losses we have incurred or will incur (whichever is greater), to the extent permitted by applicable law.
7.- FINES AND CHARGES
The rental contract holder shall be responsible for paying any parking fines or traffic violations received during the rental period. RTK50, through its fines management department, will proceed with the identification of the rental contract holder as the driver, using the officially authorized means for this purpose. The management fee for each identification is €42.35, including VAT, per identification. To process this charge, RTK50 will debit this amount from the credit card provided at the time of rental and issue the corresponding invoice.
VERY IMPORTANT: This charge only corresponds to the driver identification process. RTK50 does not collect any payment for the fine amount itself. The fine will be sent to you by the issuing authority to the address you provided. In the case of fines issued by the DGT (Dirección General de Tráfico) or the Madrid City Council to Spanish drivers, they will be sent to the address associated with your name in the DGT database. RTK50 will not charge you directly for the fine amount.
You must return the vehicle with the same amount of fuel as it was provided to you at the time of pick-up. If you do not return the vehicle with the same fuel level, you will be required to pay for the fuel used, along with a refueling fee of €23.00, including VAT. The price per liter of fuel is based on the rates published in the Official State Gazette (B.O.E.) and is regularly updated in our system.
