Vehicles are handed over in a good state and working condition, by signing the rental

agreement the Customer declares that he has examined the vehicle, verified that it is in perfect

condition and considers it fit for the intended use. NTSR reserves the right to terminate the

agreement and to reclaim possession of the vehicle at any time at the Customer's expense

should the vehicle be used in breach of clause 5 below or payment of any previous invoice

2. DAMAGE AND THEFT

or in the event of an accident during the rental period, the Customer must pay the amount

corresponding to the loss, damage and connected expenses requested by NTSR as

compensation.

3. CHARGES

The Customer must pay (or reimburse, if NTSR has paid in advance) at the straightforward

request of NTSR:

a) charges calculated on time and mileage on the basis of the tariffs set out in the rental

letter or tariffs currently in force; the minimum rental charge is twelve hours hire, and any

fractions of days over the first 45 minutes will be charged as another day’s (tariff 24 hours)

b) charges for exemption from damage, theft and fire, on the basis of the tariffs set out in the

rental letter or tariffs currently in force, if envisaged;

c) any charges for compensatory penalties for the damage referred to in the foregoing art. 2;

d) a charge for any fuel consumed, including operating costs for refuelling by NTSR, if the

Customer does not return the vehicle with at least the same quantity of fuel as that originally

AND MUST BE RETURNED FULLY FUELLED. The return of the vehicle without a full fuel tank

will be subject to an additional charge of €30 (thirty Euros)

legal costs, whether in or out of court, incurred by NTSR for the recovery of sums outstanding;

g) any fines, penalties, legal or other costs which NTSR is obliged to pay by law, as well as the

related operating costs incurred in recovering sums owed, stemming from the use of the vehicle

during the rental period unless such costs and charges are attributable to NTSR; in such

circumstances however, neither the Customer, nor any other person, will be relieved of direct

liability towards any authority involved for his or her illegal conduct. NB: fines may arrive up to

180 days after the end of the rental period;

h) €50 + €3 per kilometre for every kilometre between Florence (or Gaiole in Chianti) and the

i) in the event of an accident in which injuries are caused, the Authorities may decide to

confiscate the vehicle in order to carry out the relevant investigations. In the event of accident

caused by negligence involving one of our vehicles in which the Customer himself or herself is

injured, and the vehicle is confiscated by the Authorities, the cost of detaining the vehicle are

borne entirely by the Customer and calculated at a minimum of €60 (1-day confiscation) to

€655 (28-day confiscation), together with the costs stemming from any violations of the

Highway Code and all additional costs that may be incurred by NTSR, up to a maximum of

€2000 (two thousand Euros). The Customer authorises NTSR to charge his or her credit card

with the payments described above and any additional payment due once the rental period has

terminated and the vehicle has been returned. In addition, the Customer authorises the

payment of any fines and additional expenses stemming from violations of the Highway Code

that are notified within 180 days after the termination of the rental period.

4. EXEMPTION FROM LIABILITY

In keeping with and within the limits envisaged by the law, NTSR is not obliged to take care of

or return property belonging to the Customer, and cannot therefore be held liable for loss of or

damage to objects transported, abandoned or left in the vehicle, either during or after the rental

period. Objects left in the vehicle after it has been returned shall be treated as having been

abandoned. NTSR may not be held responsible towards the Customer, the driver or persons he

or she has transported, for any damage that may stem from the use of the vehicle or road

accidents, or for damage or problems of any type stemming from or in any event connected

with the delayed return of the rented vehicle, accident or force majeure, or any cause beyond

the control of NTSR.

5. CONDITIONS OF USE

The Customer must keep and use the vehicle with all due diligence and in particular, must not

allow the vehicle to be used:

a) to transport persons and/or property for business purposes;

b) to push or tow vehicles, trailers or other items;

c) in races, trials or competitions;

d) by the Customer or Driver under the influence of alcohol, hallucinogenic drugs, narcotics,

barbiturates or any substance that may diminish his or her awareness or ability to react. NTSR

and its intermediaries reserve the absolute right to refuse to hand over a motor vehicle if the

Customer is in an unfit psycho-physical condition;

rented to third parties under any circumstances whatsoever. The Customer must use all the

anti-theft devices fitted in the vehicle whenever it is parked and abandoned, even in a closed

area or car park with valet service.

6. INSURANCE

NTSR provides insurance cover as indicated in the policy taken out with one of the companies

which is intended to cover fully persons using the vehicle with NTSR’s permission (and not in

any other circumstances).

ADDITIONAL INSURANCE AGAINST DAMAGE TO VEHICLE

As the vehicles cannot be covered by Kasko insurance, the Customer declares that he or she is

aware that the value of the vehicle used is €2500.00 (two thousand, five hundred Euros). NTSR

therefore offers an additional insurance cover for any expenses resulting from damage to or

theft of the vehicle during the rental period. THE COST OF THIS ADDITIONAL INSURANCE

COVER IS FIXED AT €10 (ten Euros) a day. The Customer declares that he or she is aware

that this sum will also be charged in full for rental periods of less than one day. The exclusion

for this additional insurance cover remains in any event €800 (eight hundred Euros). NTSR

requires that this exclusion remain in force in order to encourage the Customer to take good

care of the vehicle.

7. ACCIDENTS.

Any accident occurring must be reported to NTSR within 24 hours of the event; if necessary,

the Customer must report the incident immediately to the competent authority and send a copy

by fax to NTSR within 24 hours from the date on which the report is submitted. In the event that

the dynamics of the incident are in doubt, the Customer must not accept liability and must take

steps to obtain details of witnesses and any other vehicles involved. The Customer undertakes

to cooperate with NTSR and NTSR’s insurers in any investigations carried out or legal action

brought.

8. FAULTS, DAMAGE.

In the event of faults or damage to the vehicle, which are not the result of wilful or negligent

acts on the part of the Customer, as a result of which travelling cannot be continued, NTSR will,

if possible, immediately replace the vehicle. If this is not possible, NTSR will refund that part of

the rental relating to the remaining period for which the vehicle has not been used. The refund

and replacement referred to above will not apply if the fault or damage is attributable to the

incorrect use of the vehicle by the Customer. The Customer must notify NTSR of the incident,

following the instructions attached to the vehicle documents. The Customer must not make any

decision unless expressly authorised to do so by NTSR. If the vehicle is abandoned and/or is

taken outside Italy without authorisation, the right to the courtesy service will be forfeited and

the Customer must reimburse NTSR for all charges, both direct and indirect, incurred in

recovering the vehicle. The Customer is not entitled to the reimbursement of the cost of

repairing the vehicle if not authorised in advance by NTSR for repairs exceeding € 100.00, the

Customer being obliged however in any event to provide documentary evidence of the costs

incurred. In the event of punctures and/or damage to the tyres, the Customer must replace the

damaged tyres, at his or her expense. The vehicle cannot be returned with repaired tyres. The

Customer is liable for any type of damage to the vehicle, including the cost of repairs, loss of

value, inability to use for rental purposes or the current market value if the vehicle cannot be

repaired or if NTSR decides not to repair it, subject to its absolute discretion, including

administrative costs connected with any type of request for compensation, whether or not the

Customer is actually responsible. The Customer is obliged in all circumstances to report

damage, accidents or acts of vandalism to NTSR and the competent Authorities within 24 hours

from the event in question. Loss of the key or the vehicle documents will be charged at the rate

of €150 (one hundred and fifty Euros).
