When collecting the car the rental companies will ask for a credit card issued in the name of the main driver even if the reservation has previously been prepaid online. Upon arrival you will be charged fuel and extras that may apply, such as child seats, GPS, additional driver etc. as well as a guarantee deposit. Please keep in mind that most of the car rental company do not accept payment with American Express or Diners Club.

Car modells or car brands
We can not guarantee specific car makes, models or the type of fuel used (unless it is a group that only includes diesel vehicles). The cars shown on the website and on your voucher are merely for example and can be changed for other models of similar caracteristics
A basic insurance is included in the rental price: third party cover, collission damage waiver (CDW) and theft protection with or without excess depending on the car provider. The basic insurance excludes damage to tyres, wheels, glass, the undercarriage of the vehicle, mirrors, hubcaps, towing, taxi expenses arrising from road assistance requested nor compensation for days of paralysis of the car to repair. There is the possibility of purchasing additional coverage when collecting your vehicle to cover all or part of these exclusions. You can also purchase the BCO Protect service when making your reservation online so you can claim the reembursement of what you paid for the damage affecting some of the elements mentioned before.
