Safety tips


Please observe the following safety tips:

  • Are there casualties? Provide first aid or call 112.
  • Put yourself first. Help the other party to safety, if possible.
  • Always remain calm and friendly.
  • Before moving your vehicle: in certain countries you must wait until the police arrive.
  • If possible, drive to the nearest safe place. Otherwise, put your warning triangle down and turn your signal lights on. Call to have your vehicle towed.
  • Do the damage report as soon as possible but in a safe place.

At BB&L you are maximally insured at the lowest deductibles


Our vehicles are insured for damage to the vehicle, third party claims, theft and passenger casualties. As a renter, you also have a maximum deductible in financial damage you cannot recover from a third party. Depending on the category of the car and per incident, you pay up to a maximum deductible of € 50.00 or € 125.00. In addition to damage caused by you, the deductible also applies to vandalism, or loss of vehicle documents for example. Excluded are losing the car keys and misfuelling. In those cases, unfortunately, all costs are for you.

24/7 Free roadside assistance


With BB&L you use automatic free roadside assistance for 24/7 technical assistance throughout Western Europe. Should the need arise, you can also ask for a replacement vehicle. In case of emergency, please contact the following telephone numbers:

  • In case of breakdown or damage in the Netherlands: 0800 099 44 02

Parking tickets and speeding


Being the owner of the car we will be the first to receive a ticket for an (alleged) offence during the rental period. Upon receiving the ticket, will file a petition including a copy of the rental agreement. The issuer of the ticket will then send the ticket to your address, and you can file a petition as well. It is important that you provide us with your correct postal address, to prevent any claims at future border checks. We charge no handling or administration fees for this procedure.
