WEDIO GLOBAL COVERAGE
Disclaimer: Wedio is not an insurance provider or in any other way comparable with an insurance provider, broker, or agent. In order for you to be covered under the Wedio Global Coverage, you must comply with all of the terms and obligations stated in Wedio's Terms and Conditions.
If a Renter or Lender fail to comply with the Terms and Conditions, the non-compliant party may be held liable for the full responsibility for damage, theft and/or loss of Listing, including payment or replacement of the Listing, regardless of any damage waiver coverage used by the Renter. It is solely up to Wedio's discretion to determine whether any Member is eligible to receive coverage or not. Wedio is always, no matter the situation, in their full right to not pay the coverage. The following provisions require the User's compliance with all terms and obligations under the Terms and Conditions.
When you rent helicopters, boats, automobiles, buildings and studios/spaces, you acknowledge: i) that Wedio does not provide any kind of insurance or other coverage for such, ii) that you are solely responsible for taking out the adequate and applicable insurance for such rental; and iii) that you must provide the Lender with the insurance certificate. The insurance certificate must be generated by a licensed insurance provider, carrier, broker, or agent, and must confirm that the insurance is adequate and applicable for the requested rental. You should carefully read and understand any terms and policies, you may be bound by, when you take out the insurance etc. in relation to the rental.
For the avoidance of doubt, Wedio does not provide any kind of insurance or other coverage, including any claim processing support or dispute resolution, for rental of helicopters, boats, automobiles, buildings or studios/spaces.

Further, Renters shall cover unintentional damage to a rented Listing or theft of the requested and rented equipment, during the Rental Period.

The Coverage includes a Lender Guarantee of Renter's failure to return the equipment, that the Renter requested and rented, during the Rental Period.
The Coverage is a waiver, not to be confused with an insurance policy. The Coverage potentially waives the Renter's liability for any unintentional or accidental damage to the rented Listing during the Rental Period. The exclusions listed below applies to the waiver. The Coverage is provided with the purpose to waive the Renter's potential liability of costs to repair or replace the rented Listing. In UK there is a £25,000 maximum coverage and, in the EU, a £30,000 maximum coverage. However, the maximum value covered by Wedio Global Coverage is the Replacement Value of the Listing at the time of rental.
When you, as a Renter of a Listing, purchase the Wedio Global Coverage and comply with Wedio's Terms and Community Rules, you acknowledge, that you are liable for all damage to, theft of or loss of the Listing during the agreed Rental period. However, with the purchase of the Wedio Global Coverage, Wedio is financially responsible for any repair or replacement of the rented Listing. Wedio's financial responsibility covers up to the Listing Replacement Value minus any applicable deductible(s) (the deductible is 15% of the Listing Replacement Value, but a minimum of £285 in the UK and a minimum of €335 in the EU) or the purchased limit. In the case of voluntary parting, the Lender gets reimbursed, less a 15% deductible, which is calculated based on the value of the equipment. The equipment's value is also calculated by how much a piece of equipment depreciates in value each year. Reimbursement will be paid out to the Lender with or without VAT depending on the Lender's status.
Please be aware, that the Wedio Global Coverage does not apply, if you are not fully compliant with Wedio's Terms and Community Rules or if any of the Exclusions applies. It is solely up to Wedio to determine, whether an exclusion applies.
Deductible(s) are immediately due to Wedio or the Listing's Lender upon payment of the claim by Wedio to the Lender. In case the Renter does not remit the deductible amount, Wedio reserves the right to charge on the Renter's Wedio account or attempt to collect the debt using alternative methods.
Please be aware, that the damage limitations listed below does not apply, if you are not fully compliant with Wedio's Terms and Community Rules.

Usage of the rented items by a third party ‘person’, who is not stated in the rental agreement relating to the Wedio order and who is not a verified Wedio member.
Usage of rented drones without valid certificates and permits.
In these situations, or otherwise where these exclusions apply, the Renter agree to be liable and full responsible for damage, loss or theft of the Listing, including any repair or replacement of the Listing. It is solely up to Wedio to determine if a theft has occurred. Wedio will perform this assessment based on an investigation by law enforcement and Wedio's own investigation. The investigations may include private investigators or other third parties. Please be aware, that all claims of theft require: i) a copy of the filed police report; ii) a confirmation of the filing and a criminal investigation by law inforcement; and iii) any relevant information or footage, that may be of help for Wedio's investigation of the claim.
On Wedio's request, you (as a Lender or a Renter) agree to initiate a claim under your own or an associated third-party's insurance policy, before Wedio processes a claim. The claim initiated may be for instance, for damages to or theft of the Listing. Wedio substract any reimbursement amounts, that is due or remitted to the Lender, from financial responsibilities that Wedio may owe to the Lender on behalf of the Renter. However, such reimbursement amount must be related to the claim reported to Wedio based on the Wedio Global Coverage.
The Wedio Global Coverage covers damages such as major scratches, broken pieces and other unintentionally or accidentally major damage. However, normal wear and tear, including scratches or other less significant damage is not covered. It is solely up to Wedio to determine, whether a damage can be considered as normal wear and tear, and under which circumstances the damage occurred, including if the damage was caused unintentionally. If it is determined that the Wedio Global Coverage applies to the unintentional damage, the Renter agrees to use the Wedio Global Coverage, the Renter shall pay a deductible amount of 15% to Wedio (15% of the Listing Replacement Value but a minimum of £285 in the UK and a minimum of €335 in the EU).
If the Renter agrees to be charged such deductible amount, Wedio will normally collect it, when the Lender is reimbursed. When the Renter agrees to use the Wedio Global Coverage, the Renter acknowledges, that the collected deductible amount will not be refunded. It is solely up to Wedio to determine the valuation of the Listing, the costs of the damaged Listing or any replacement, repair or repair provider costs.
If the Listing is unintentionally or accidentally damaged by the Renter within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees to pay for the necessary reparations or replacements. The Renter must pay both any deductible amount and any further amount, which is not covered by the Wedio Global Coverage (a claimed amount over £25,000 in the UK and €30,000 in the EU).
In case it is determined that the Wedio Global Coverage does not apply, for instance because the Renter damages, loses, steals, transfers or performs any other action not covered by the Wedio Global Coverage, any amount for necessary reparations or replacements shall be paid immediately and entirely by the Renter. It is solely up to Wedio to determine the valuation of the Listing, the costs of the damaged Listing or any replacement, repair or repair provider costs.
The Wedio Global Coverage covers damage such as major scratches, broken pieces and other major damage. However, normal wear and tear, including scratches or other less significant damage is not covered.

The Renter must pay Wedio in order for Wedio to repair or replace the peripheral items. It is solely up to Wedio to determine which items are defined as peripheral items.
Any incidents, damages or losses must be immediately submitted to Wedio by the Renter. It is solely up to Wedio to conduct investigations and determine whether such incident is covered by the Wedio Global Coverage. The Members agree to authorize Wedio to conduct investigations with the sole purpose to determine if the Wedio Global Coverage applies. It is not guaranteed, that any costs of repair or replacement will be waived for the Renter or that the Lender will be reimbursed for any costs. In case it is determined that the Wedio Global Coverage does not apply, Wedio will refund the Wedio Global Coverage fee to the Renter.

Wedio will keep track of any adjustments in the Listing Replacement Value.
Wedio reserves the right to change the price of a Lender’s Listing. Wedio does so in order to maintain reasonable rental prices relative to other listing prices, with the intention to increase the likelihood that a Lender will have their Listing rented by a Renter.

Canceling as a Lender: If you need to cancel a rental that you already have approved, make sure to get in touch with the Renter in good time.
