Pricing / Payments
All prices are in euro and are inclusive of all local taxes. There is no provision for part-rentals and therefore no discounts and/or refunds will be made for cars returned prior to the completion of the rental contract. The total price must be paid in full before the car is released. You can pay either by debit/credit card or cash.
pre-pay online: when you choose to pre-pay online for your booking and take advantage of our online discount, we will charge your card for the full (discounted) amount in advance as soon as your booking is sumbitted and verified. Note that pre-pay bookings are final and non-refundable as they are discounted offerings.
pay at station: when you choose to pay on arrival for your booking, at the booking stage we will only verify your card details and reserve your car. Your card will not be charged at the booking stage. For all pay at station bookings we allow amendments or cancellation free of charge, but please make sure you contact us at least 24 hours in before the booked pick-up time as there will be a no-show fee equivalent to one day’s rate of the booking if you fail to do so.
All our prices include comprehensive cover, although excess does apply. The amount of excess depends on the car type. You need a credit card in order to enable us to pre-authorise a security deposit. Your card is not charged as long as you return the car undamaged. The deposit will be returned to you in full when you return the car, as long as you return the car undamaged.
