From additional drivers to different types of coverage, reading the Terms and Conditions when renting a car can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. With that in mind, Auto Europe has decided to lay out everything you need to know regarding the perfect car hire experience. Here are a few tips to help you understand T&Cs and the small print when choosing the right car rental for your holiday.
First of all, it’s important to consider your destination and the weather conditions. If you need special winter equipment or a GPS, for example, remember to request it in advance to ensure availability at pickup. Then you need to decide whether you will drop off the car at the same location that you picked it up at. If not, a “one way” fee applies. If you are under 25 years old, a “young driver” fee may also apply. Both “one way” and “young driver” fees are displayed online in the booking matrix. And if you know that grandpa, grandma, and even the dog will have their turn at the steering wheel, don’t worry, we offer free “additional drivers” fee in selected destinations!
It is also important to prioritise safety. This is why Auto Europe has carefully designed Refundable Excess Insurance that covers all your needs while on the road. During your journey, you may pass through tolls, cross borders to another country or even drive the mileage marker of the car way up. No problem! Just make sure to check for restrictions, or contact our team of experts to help you find the best solution for your travel plans. Just call our toll-free number 0800 358 1229.
Finally, before you can hop into your car and drive away, you will need to have a credit card, the printed voucher, an identification card and a driving licence. We also advise you to check the vehicle for any existing damage, dents and scratches. We have prepared an infographic to make this information much easier to read. Moreover, you can also check out our blog article for more insider tips!
You are now ready for a great car hire experience!
