FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly 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 the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
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 delay. As a general 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 must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

What to do in France?
For flexible traveling in France, car hire is strongly recommended. It is a large country and many attractions are far apart. Whether you arrive by train or plane, you can hire a car directly from major airports, such as cheap car rentals from the Bordeaux/Mérignac Airport BOD. Cheap car hire in France allows you to see most of the country. France is great for road trips. It features charming country roads and a particularly sunny southern coast that is lovely for driving, especially in the summer.

Paris is a great destination, but far from the only one in France. To see it all, we recommend cheap car rentals in France. There is a lot on offer depending on your preferences. Wine fans will love the vineyards dotted around the country. Those who love the beach and marinas will be at home in the sunny south. Skiers and snowboarders have plenty of pistes in the French Alps to play on. Albi, Bordeaux, and Avignon feature UNESCO World Heritage Sites
The size of the country surprises many. That's why car hire in France is so important. Many of the top destinations are spread out. Fortunately, rental cars in France are cheap, and it's an excellent country for a road trip.
Road trips are a great way to experience French culture. A lot of French cuisine is rooted in the country's lifestyle. From the vineyards to the farmyard, there is plenty to see. Plus, staying at quaint cottages and homesteads along the way is part of the experience. It's also a chance to properly interact with the locals and practice your French.
