INSURANCE AND FLEET CAR DAMAGE
Insurance is included with the Vagari membership fees.
Members are provided with auto liability insurance up to the Minimum Financial Responsibility Law requirements based on the jurisdiction where the accident or incident occurs. The Limits for these Laws varies, and it is incumbent on the Member to be aware of the laws and limits within the territory of travel. Under no circumstances will the insurance provided by Vagari provide additional insurance coverage or limits than the Minimum Financial Responsibility Law requirements.
Members are also provided with uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage up to the Minimum Financial Responsibility Law requirements based on the jurisdiction where the accident or incident occurs. Members may use their own health care coverage in case of any personal injury coverage that the Member has available. Such coverage would typically be excess over coverage provided by the Vagari insurance, if any. In Georgia, insurance companies are required to make 'medical payments' coverage available as an optional coverage. The Member acknowledges that she or he understands that Vagari has not opted to purchase such coverage and hereby also agrees that such coverage is not available under the insurance provided by Vagari. In Washington, D.C., insurance companies are required to make Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage available as an optional coverage. The Member acknowledges that she or he understands that Vagari has not opted to purchase such coverage and hereby also agrees that such coverage is not available under the insurance provided by Vagari.
If the total amount of the injuries and/or third-party property damage in an accident exceeds our coverage limits, Vagari members are responsible for any amount which exceeds the liability insurance provided by Vagari described above. Members should contact their insurance agent to assist in handling your responsibility for these amounts. Members engaging in prohibited uses of Fleet Cars may not be covered by the insurance provided by Vagari and are subject to immediate revocation of Membership privileges.
For any loss or damage to the Fleet Car that occurs during the Member's rental, the member is responsible for the cost of the repairs or other damage amount outlined in the Member fee schedule. This amount may vary with the Member's driving/membership plan and/or the type of Fleet Car used, Members who have had no accidents in the last 12 months may have the option to purchase a damage fee waiver to reduce the Member's Fleet Car damage cost obligation or eliminate it altogether. The insurance we provide does not relieve you of your obligations with respect to the Fleet Car damage which occurs during the Member's rental.
If Members have any questions or concerns about the insurance coverage Vagari provides and whether it works for the Member's own personal situation, we encourage the Member to consult with an insurance agent.
In case of an incident involving property damage or any third party, the Member must fill out an official police report form, and, if possible, provide a jointly agreed-upon statement, complete Vagari·s Incident report form on the Vagari app or website, or by calling Vagari, and obtain the following information:
Members must provide to Vagari and any other claims adjustment service the findings of any report or any notice relating to a claim or a lawsuit against Vagari regarding any incident involving a Fleet Car. Members agree to cooperate fully with Vagari in the investigation and defense of any such claim or lawsuit. A Member's account may be suspended until the investigation has been concluded.
The Member will be responsible for the costs related to the repair, recovery, and loss of use of any Fleet Car and all third-party injuries and property damages resulting from any of the foregoing to the extent they are not covered by insurance. Estimates for any costs will be available to the Member for review and costs may be assessed in advance of repair. You will be responsible for all applicable damages and costs arising from the Members failure to comply with the terms of the Contract. For an understanding of insurance coverage provided by Vagari for the Member, please see Insurance and Fleet Car section above.
You are responsible for any traffic violations incurred during your reservation or as a result of your use of a Fleet Car. These include, but are not limited to parking, speeding, red light, photo enforcement and toll violations. You are liable for all penalties/fees from any such violation, including fines for late payment and any processing penalties/fees added by the issuing municipality. You are liable for payment of all tolls and any fines for toll evasion. Wherever possible it is the Member's responsibility to pay the relevant authorities directly. Vagari may impose a fee in connection with processing any such violations, as described above in Membership Fees. You must report such violations to Vagari as soon as possible within the prescribed deadline for the violation (for example, if the case is being taken to court).
You must notify Vagari of any traffic violation notices found on a Fleet Car at the time of pickup of the Fleet Car. All unreported traffic violations will be the responsibility of a Member if they occur during the time period during which such Member is using or responsible for the Fleet Car.
Where a violation was incurred by a Member and is sent directly to Vagari, Vagari will either pay the penalty/fee on behalf of the Member and then add the penalty/fee to the Member's account or Vagari may, if permitted by the authority issuing the violation, transfer liability for the penalty/fee to the Member and the Member will then be wholly responsible for all correspondence with the appropriate authority and any penalties/ fees due. Vagari will always inform a Member which one of these two courses of action it has taken and will endeavor to provide notice to Members before it pays any penalties/fees attributable to them. Once paid by Vagari, it may not be possible for the Member to challenge the penalty/fee. The right to appeal or transfer liability on any traffic or parking charge issued by any authority or body belongs to Vagari and will be at Vagari·s absolute discretion. In the case of speeding notices, Vagari is obligated to pass on the offending Member's details to the police, who will then contact the Member directly.
