Frequently asked questions

Can I book now and pay later for my car rental in Europe?

What happens if I need to cancel my Europe car reservation?
Scan through the rental agreement to be sure, but most rentals qualify for a full refund if you notify us at least six hours ahead of picking up the car. There are some exemptions though. Your confirmation will have more information, or just visit our Customer Service Portal.
What types of cars can I rent in Europe?
Whatever meets your needs! Go for a mid-size or full-size if you’re with the family, or scale up to a premium for a top-of-the-range ride. Or, choose an economy vehicle — the most booked rental in Europe. Affordable and with awesome mileage, they’re perfect for singles, couples or anyone else who doesn’t need a large amount of room. They’re particularly suited to driving around cities. Getting into cramped parking spots will be a piece of cake!

What do you need to rent a car in Europe?
While requirements may differ between rental car outlets, the essentials are a valid driver’s license and a credit card in your name. You don’t need to take out the company’s auto insurance. However, proof of your own coverage may be required.
Can I rent a car for a month or longer in Europe?
Yes, and the awesome news is providers often offer lower rates the longer you rent. Look up our long-term car rental deals in Europe and cruise away with an incredible bargain.
Where can I find an Europe car rental if I am younger than 25?
Some Europe outlets will rent to drivers under 25 years old, and others won’t. Age policies differ from supplier to supplier, so you’ll want to do your homework. Also, find out if there are any extra costs. Some businesses will pass on a surcharge to young drivers between the ages of 21 and 24. Always check the terms and conditions to avoid any nasty surprises.
