Basic & inclusive contracts

Basic contracts (without insurance) and Inclusive contracts (with insurance) vary according to a deductible amount that varies from one car rental category to the next. Some countries offer this deductible to be waived, for an extra fee payable onsite. At pick up, you will have additional fees to apply: airport and/or agency tax, road tax or other eco-taxes, winter equipment... if required.

Other fees may be required on-site: all accessories requested at reservation such as car seats, roof racks...

An extra fee, payable on-site, may also be required due to geographic restrictions that may apply depending on the car category and countries visited.
