The price of a car rental depends on several factors, such as the vehicle class, rental period and insurance package. When booking, choose the insurance options you would like to have. The higher the insurance excess, the lower the cost. Typical options are:
Obligatory deposit. The deposit amount is "held" on your credit card and deducted in the event of damage.
During peak season times, there can be a shortage of available car rentals. For this reason, it's a good idea to book your car rental before your arrival date as early as possible. This is the only way to ensure that you'll be able to book your preferred vehicle model. It is highly advisable that you compare prices in advance to get the best deal.
Whether you're travelling to Majorca, Crete or Fuerteventura – you want to be able to explore the area with the best car rental deal? Then you generally need the following:
CDW stands for "Collision Damage Waiver" and is equivalent to partially comprehensive insurance. There is also "Loss Damage Waiver", which means fully comprehensive insurance. Both terms come from the insurance industry and refer to the level of insurance coverage in the case of damage. In Europe, partially comprehensive insurance is always included in a car rental contract. In the event of damage, you will have to pay the excess and not all damage is covered. You also have to book glass and tyre coverage separately.
A deposit is obligatory whenever you rent a car. This amount is usually "held" on your credit card and only deducted in the event of damage. The deposit amount depends on the rental agency and the previously agreed excess amount. If you take out a car rental agreement without any excess, the deposit is initially held in the event of damage. After your trip, you can then submit a damage report to the operator and the deposit will be refunded once the case has been reviewed.
You want to travel abroad with your rented car? Cross-border travel to neighbouring countries must be previously approved and is not always permitted. Please check with the agency which countries you are allowed to travel to with the rented car before you book.
Many operators offer the option of having the rented car delivered to your hotel for an additional fee. It is also possible to return it there at the end. If this option is available, you will see a hotel delivery package listed alongside the standard package.
You can find the address of the car rental station where you want to collect and return your car in the second step of the booking process, as well as on the overview page after booking. The address will also be on the voucher we send you by email once the booking is confirmed.
