- What are the basic requirements to rent a car?
Most suppliers establish as minimum requirements to rent a car to be over 21 years old, have a valid driving license minimum 1 year and possess a credit card on the name of the driver
- Is it worth to choose the Premium Rate even if it is more expensive?
Always! The Premium Rate includes in its price the costs of highly recommended services that are not usually included in basic rates such as full insurance, full / full fuel policy and in most destinations and suppliers an additional driver for free and / or unlimited mileage. In this way, although the initial price of basic rates may seem cheaper, almost always the customer ends up paying a lot more.
- What is the difference between full/empty and full/full fuel options?
Selecting the Full/Empty option the customer must pay a fuel deposit when collecting the vehicle plus an extra for the refueling service and when returning the car he is reimbursed the amount of fuel that has not used. However, in the Full/Full option, the customer does not pay anything when picking up the rental car and can return it with the same level of fuel as he collected it, thus saving the extra of the refueling service by paying only for the fuel that has been used and at the price of the gas station where you decide to refuel.
- What if I have to cancel my car rental reservation?
In this case, each provider has specific conditions, but in general, if some kind of prepayment has been made, the full amount is refunded whenever he cancels during the first 48 hours after making the reservation as stipulated in the terms and conditions. After 48 hours, the cancellation of a reservation costs approximately 18 euros or the entire amount paid if it is less than this amount. An exception are the Non Refundable Rates that some providers offer that does not allow any modifications and in case of cancellation no refund is made.

Tips to save more on your reservation
- Anticipation is the key
Book your rental car well in advance will allow you to have better offers and greater availability ... the closer you get to the date the less options you will have to choose and the more expensive you will be to rent a car.
- A greater offer ... better prices
In the destinations where we can find a greater number of rent a car companies we will also be able to find the best prices ... for greater competition, greater offer and cheaper prices, so it is advisable, whenever possible, to book at airports and train.
- Do not be put off by first impressions
Do not just look at prices because some suppliers, offering cheaper prices on their reservations, may eventually end up being more expensive, as they offer more limited contracts and may require additional services not included in the price ... or meet with an unpleasant surprise in the case of suffering some mishap.
