    Rental cars will be rented with gasoline filled fully. Therefore, when returning a car, it is necessary to refill the gasoline.

  • Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)

    In the event of an accident, most costs incurred will be covered by insurance that you apply for automatically, but there are two types of expenses you will bear. One is the deductible (50,000 yen or 100,000 yen), and the other is the operating compensation cost (20,000 yen or 50,000 yen). If you apply for the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), you will not need to pay the deductibles. Normally, a cost of around \1000 per day is necessary, but at Tabirai Car Rental, the price includes the subscription fee to CDW.

  • Operating Compensation Cost (Non-Operation Charge: NOC)

    In the event of an accident, the cost to be paid by the user for "compensation for lost business" in the repair period of the rental car is the Non-Operation Charge (NOC). When the car is able to run by itself after the accident, the amount to pay will be 20,000 yen, but it will be 50,000 yen if it cannot run. Major rental car companies listed at Tabirai Car Rental have their own insurance that makes payment for the NOC unnecessary, which you can apply for at their car rental offices.
