Compensation for the period of non-use is paid for the motor vehicle's repair time on the basis of the price of the vehicle. When determining the amount of compensation, the price of the vehicle is deemed to be the cost of acquiring a new vehicle at the time of the accident if the vehicle is no more than five years old. If the vehicle is older than five years, the fair value of a similar vehicle at the time of the accident is regarded as the price of the vehicle.
It is a prerequisite for paying compensation that the company has been provided with the repair shop's certificate for the period of non-use.
If the vehicle is written off, compensation for non-use is payable for a maximum of 14 days. For heavy equipment, compensation is paid for 30 days or for the time spent on obtaining and equipping a new vehicle.
