General Terms and Conditions for the Rental Agreement (GTC)
SAC Sportscars AG
The lessor is SAC Sportscars AG (hereinafter referred to as „Lessor“ or „SAC“). The lessee is the natural or legal person registered in the rental agreement who rents a vehicle from SAC (hereinafter referred to as the „Lessee“). The vehicles rented by SAC are generally exclusive sports cars from the luxury segment (hereinafter referred to as the „rental vehicles“), which is why the lessee must comply with special requirements.
Requirements for the rental are a minimum age of the tenant of 18 years and a Swiss category B driver’s license.
The tenant may only transfer the right of use from the rental agreement to another person with the consent of the landlady. This additional driver must be named by the lessee at the time of conclusion of the contract.
3.Rental price and deposit
The agreed rental price as well as any agreed deposit must be paid in full before the start of the rental period. We reserve the right to make additional claims for the use of the rental vehicle beyond the agreement reached (e.g. for a longer rental period).
SAC is entitled to offset the deposit against the tenant for all claims arising from or in connection with the rental agreement.
4.Bookings / Cancellations
Bookings can be cancelled by the tenant up to 48 hours before the start of the rental period. In case of later cancellations by the tenant, the entire rental price is due.
SAC reserves the right to cancel bookings in the event of bad weather without giving further reasons or for safety reasons and not to hand over the rental vehicle. The tenant is not entitled to compensation.
The rental vehicle may only be driven in Switzerland. Any exceptions must be approved by the SAC in advance in writing or by e-mail.
If journeys abroad are permitted, all applicable foreign legal provisions, including those corresponding to the Road Traffic Act (SVG) of Switzerland and its ordinances, must be complied with. The tenant is solely liable for fines, legal costs and/or other costs resulting from non-compliance with the relevant laws.
6.Use of the rental vehicle
The lessee and any additional drivers must comply with the provisions of the Road Traffic Act (SVG) and its ordinances at all times. The renter is solely liable and regardless of his fault for fines, procedural costs and/or other costs resulting from the disregard of the Road Traffic Act or other laws (even if, for example, committed by an additional driver).
As the owner of the rented vehicle, SAC is legally obliged to forward the renter’s personal data to the authorities upon appropriate official order. SAC is also entitled to provide the authorities with records of the use of the rental vehicle (including data from the airbag control unit and infotainment system). A fixed processing fee of CHF 100.00 will be charged for the resulting administrative expenses. We reserve the right to assert any further damages.
All costs for fuel, tolls, etc. resulting directly from the use of the rental vehicle are to be borne exclusively by the renter.
The use of the rental vehicle as sports equipment, for example for participation in racing events, is strictly prohibited.
An existing ESP or other control system may not be deactivated during the entire rental period of the rental vehicle.
Smoking, eating and drinking, as well as bringing animals in the car are also prohibited, as well as entering and parking in underground garages and narrow parking spaces.
The tenant undertakes to report any accidents and damages of any kind to the SAC without delay. In the event of accidents of any kind, the tenant is obliged to call the police.
The lessee is obliged to notify SAC immediately of the withdrawal of the driver’s licence as well as of any circumstances restricting the driving licence as well as the temporary seizure or seizure of the rental vehicle. The tenant hereby authorises SAC to inspect police and/or official files in the event of a claim.
Damage to the rental vehicle due to over-revving of the engine, overheating of the clutch due to long grinding, cavalier starts, excessive tyre wear and any kind of incorrect manipulation are fully at the expense of the lessor. This damage can be easily detected by means of a test device.
Any liability of SAC for itself and the auxiliary persons employed by it towards the lessee and any additional drivers for any kind of contractual and/or non-contractual personal injury and/or property damage is expressly excluded, to the extent permitted by law and not covered by insurance, including liability for indirect and/or indirect damages, for loss of profit, consequential damages, delay damages, Unusability of the rental vehicle, missed connections and opportunities to do business, etc.
Liability, fully comprehensive or partially comprehensive insurance is included in the rental price. The deductible is CHF 3,000.00 and CHF 5,000.00 for new drivers.
Damage to the rental vehicle, rims and tires, engine and transmission damage, as well as mechanical and electronic damage, etc., caused by improper driving (deactivate ESP) are not insured. The tenant is fully liable for these damages, regardless of fault. For accidents or damages caused by gross negligence or intent, the tenant is also fully liable.
The consumption of alcohol and drugs before or during the rental period is prohibited. Damage caused by drunk driving or drug use is not insured and must be paid in full by the renter
10.Handover / Return
The handover and return of the rental vehicle takes place at the SAC office at Industriestrasse 168 in 8957 Spreitenbach.

SAC is entitled to complain about any damage up to 7 working days after return.
Should individual provisions of this contract be invalid or unenforceable or become invalid or unenforceable after conclusion of the contract, the validity of the remaining contract shall remain unaffected. The invalid or unenforceable provisions shall be replaced by the effective and enforceable regulation whose effects come closest to the economic objective pursued by the contracting parties with the invalid or unenforceable provision. The above provisions shall apply mutatis mutandis in the event that the contract proves to be incomplete.
If the tenant violates any provision of the rental agreement or these general terms and conditions of the rental agreement, the tenant is obliged to pay a contractual penalty of CHF 1,000.00. The assertion of further claims for damages and all other claims is expressly reserved.
