Is it possible to return the rental car at a different location than the pick-up location?
In many cases, it is no problem to return the rental car at a different location than the pick-up location, a so-called one-way car rental booking. In most cases you pay an extra surcharge for this, these are the drop-off costs. The advantage of a one-way is that you do not have to drive all the way back to the starting point or you can rent the car in the city center, but return it at the airport.
Can I cross the border with my rental car?
In many cases you can cross the border by rental car, but this depends on the rental supplier and the country where you pick up your car. View the conditions of the supplier per country. Do you have questions about border crossings? Please do not hesitate to contact us.
How old do I have to be to rent a car?
The average age at which you can rent a car is 21 years. However, this differs per country, rental supplier and car type. For example, there are also many countries where you can rent a car from the age of 18. In most countries, there is a fee for younger drivers (usually between 18 and 25 years), a young driver fee. Always check the rental conditions of the country and supplier or contact us. Keep in mind that sometimes a maximum age is also applied.
