    With private rentals - how do you get full insurance cover?
    And in case of mechanical failure - who pays?

    We once rented an Isuzu 4WD, late model, low km, cover on the back perfect for us and bikes. 1500 a day or 5000b a week
    Told we had insurance cover. Went well, happy with vehicle and price.
    2-3 months after went back to rent same vehicle, all going good till owner went to back it out of the garage, the clutch 'went' - nothing.
    (Where do clutches go?)
    Got another vehicle from another source.
    Wondered - if clutch had packed up an hour/day etc later - it would have been 'all my fault' and apart from stuffing up holiday, I'd have been expected to pay, under some hidden Thai clause 'farang driver abuse'

    Ive never heard of anyone having to pay for mechanical repairs to a rental car here.
    Accident carries an excess , the renter is supposed to point that out on handing over the keys.
