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.

Apart from caring for the animals, the main focus of the foundation is wildlife conservation through adequate education. Therefore, you’ll be offered an educational tour through the conservancy.

The geological park is perhaps the most unusual geological and historical site situated in a mega sinkhole out of the city. Surrounded by steep walls and sandy terrain, the sinkhole descends about 120 ft. below the surface protecting a miniature rain-forest. The sinkhole has been an allure for the curious for hundreds of years now. In fact, researchers have found an avalanche of valuable fossils, fossilized skeletons, and marine shells in the sinkhole. You can opt to go for a short half-mile hike around its perimeter and begin to descend to the bottom. The tourists’ center offers valuable information about the depression, and a ranger-guided tour is available on Saturdays.
