FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Located in the south of Wales, thanks to its location on the shore of the Bristol Channel, Cardiff was and is a major port. The city is the political, cultural and economic center of Wales and is home to the new Welsh government and the Senadd building, despite the city’s population is less than half a million. It was thanks to the industrial revolution that Cardiff is the city it is today. At its peak Cardiff port was largest for exporting coal, in 1905 it was granted its city status and in 1955 it was declared the capital of Wales.

Sights

Wales is famous for its castles, with more per square mile than any other country, so it is natural that the country’s capital should have a castle. Cardiff Castle is found directly in the center and you could say it is the center-piece of the city. Built on an old Roman fort, the castle used to belong to the Bute family, the family who helped Cardiff become one of the leading coal ports and was handed to the public in the 1940's. The castle is open to the public and is definitely worth a visit.

Senedd is home to recently established Welsh government and designed by the architect who designed the Millennium Dome, the structure is very environmentally friendly. The Senedd is found in the Cardiff area, and its definitely worth a visit.

Wales is famous for its rugby and its national rugby union team is a source of Welsh pride - many in the country are proud of their team and its achievements. So if you are lucky enough to be in Cardiff for a game and able to get tickets, its highly recommended that you go for the atmosphere alone, but if there is no game on it is still highly advised you do take a tour of this impressive stadium, the Millennium Stadium:

Museums

National Museum Cardiff is the focal point of the institutions that make up the Welsh National Museum. The museum has sections on the evolution of Wales, showcasing 4.6 billion years of geological history, a natural history section, an art gallery which has paintings dating back to the Tudor period, as well as some paintings by Welsh artists.

Excursions
