Frequently Asked Questions
Breakage or theft guarantee
Can I take the “Breakage or theft guarantee” after confirming and paying for my order?
Once you’ve confirmed your order, this is not possible through our website. However, if you discover that your insurance doesn’t adequately cover breakage or theft of hired equipment, it is possible to take our “Breakage or theft guarantee” when you collect your equipment from the shop.
Exactly what is covered by the "Breakage or theft guarantee”?
Just as the name suggests, it covers you if during your stay your equipment is damaged or stolen. The guarantee is optional (tick or untick the box as necessary).
* Breakage or theft: this guarantee covers accidental damage or theft of you equipment during your stay. If you take our “Cancellation, breakage or theft guarantee” offered online, or the “Breakage or theft guarantee” offered on arrival at the shop, you will benefit from preferential conditions in the case of breakages or non-return of materiel hired from SKI REPUBLIC:
(Amounts below refer to “pairs” of skis or a snowboard):
Adult = 120 € / Junior = 60 €
1 = 13 € / 2 = 26 €
15% will be deducted for every year a ski or snowboard has been in circulation.

Remember to check what your travel insurance actually covers regarding hired equipment, so if necessary you can take our guarantee and enjoy peace of mind on your holiday!
