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.

Cheap Car Rental Irvine

The beautiful city of Irvine is located in Orange County, California. From its ranch status in the 1800s, Irvine has grown into a metropolitan city with a great city plan and beautiful parks and recreation centers. The city’s majestic sights are spread out in different locations. If you are on a tour of Irvine, you'll need a car to get from one place to another, while also getting a clear view of the city’s architecture while on the road.

This revolutionary website lets you choose the car rental in Irvine that offers the best price by allowing price comparison from different rental services. This way, you get the best deal on a rental car in Irvine.

Rental Car Irvine
The city of Irvine was originally a ranch owned by James Irvine in the late 1880s. He then passed it on to his son, James Irvine Jr. who premiered the first suburban developments on the property. The city is named after the Irvine family who, through the Irvine Company, spearheaded its development through the ages. One of the Irvine Company’s master plans that brought the city to fruition was the gifting of 1,000 acres for the development of a higher learning center to the University of California. The establishment of the university led to a boom in urban development and businesses. One interesting fact about Irvine is that it has been featured in many movies, some of them appearing at the box office. Popular films such as Eagle Eye, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Iron Man, Transformers, and Ocean’s Eleven all feature scenes from this beautiful city. If you are a fan of these movies, you should hire a car in Irvine and drive around the city identifying some of the sites in the movies.
The city of Irvine has also won numerous awards for being the happiest, best and safest city to reside in the United States. CNNMoney.com ranked it 4th and 6th in 2008 and 2012 respectively, as the best place to live in the US. BusinessWeek ranked it 5th in 2011 while 24/7 Wall Street ranked it the top best-run city in the United States. Irvine is one of the most family friendly places to live or vacation, and it has been “America’s Safest Big City” for more than ten years now according to the FBI. Therefore, if you are vacationing with your family, log on to HAPPYCAR and choose the most affordable car from a car hire in Irvine to explore this big city with ease.

Discover Irvine with your Rental Car
Once you hire a car in Irvine the sights to visit and things to enjoy in this city are endless. One of the best places to visit for art lovers is the Irvine Museum. The museum houses great works from California Impressionists with great paintings of the California landscape. It is free to the public. From the museum, head over to the ChocXo Bean to Bar Chocolatier. Here you'll get a tour of the chocolate making process from the bean to the bar. For those seeking knowledge, the whole tour is an amazing experience. However, the main highlight of the tour is the free chocolate samples of various chocolate products, both finished and semi-processed.

In San Diego, you can visit SeaWorld and experience an adrenaline rush on the breathtaking roller-coasters. You can also have a relaxing time at the San Diego Zoo or the Balboa Park.
