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.

Japan Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Japan

When you think of Japan, a number of things might emerge to the fore: sushi, manga and samurai, perhaps. But one thing is for certain: Japan is a country that is much more than the sum of its popular exports, and provides a wealth of unforgettable experiences, wreathed in both lasting tradition and cutting-edge modernity. The wonders of Japan’s natural world are largely ignored by visitors, but at their own expense: hiking in Hokkaido, diving off Okinawa and exploring the deep forests outside Kyoto will leave you wondering why you decided to venture into the alluring mega cities in the first place.

While the advanced transportation of Japan can sometimes seem like the best way to go, trains can be expensive and buses too inflexible; with just a few clicks you can have your Japan car rental ready to go, and at an affordable price. HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Japan has to offer so you can take full advantage of this enthralling country, and a car hire from a number of airports, including a car hire Narita airport, is also available. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals on a car hire to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific needs. You have the options of choosing car size, pick up location and type of insurance to ensure you get the best deal on a great car hire!

General Information

This thin archipelago of some 6800 volcanic islands has thousands of cities, but there around nine that are perhaps of most interest to the itinerant traveler, each of which demand a number of days to fully appreciate. Tokyo, the modern mega city and capital, is the first thought of many, and rightly so: the economic and political heart of the country, Tokyo has grown from a small fishing village to one of the densest urban centers in the world, providing high-tech visions of the future amid charming cherry blossom picnics. All roads lead to Tokyo, and a day’s drive through the beautiful northern peninsula brings you to Kanazawa, something of Tokyo's opposite: often overlooked by foreign tourists, Kanazawa is one of the best preserved Edo-period cities with echoes of samurai, merchants, geishas and feudal lords along its compact streets. Its food, too, is of such high quality that anything there is good, and much the same can be said of much of the rest of Japan – many construct their itineraries around a carefully crafted gastronomic experience. From a perfectly prepared plate of sushi to the spare beauty of a zen rock garden, there is plenty to enthrall and amaze.

Using a car hire in Japan

Japan is easy to get around with various modes of transportation, but because the roads are so well maintained and the enormous number of hidden gems in the country that come in the form of fishing villages and satellite towns, a Japan car rental is an excellent option to get off the beaten track, and especially on the sparsely populated island of Hokkaido. The Akan National Park, for example, offers up beautiful sparkling mountain lakes and a relaxing, winding drive.

Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan for a thousand years, boasts an overwhelming legacy of temples, palaces and gardens, and around the city are many sights and smells to uncover, including the best tea in Japan, natural hot springs and beautiful but ignored western coast beaches. And close by is Osaka, Japan’s anti-capital and commercial powerhouse. And the mystical rice-growing Kansai plains are a veritable treasure trove of temples and remnants of imperial cities. There is so much to see in this part of the world, and a car hire in Japan can help you uncover some of the many mysteries just waiting to be discovered. The HAPPYCAR teams wishes you a pleasant journey.
