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.

What can I see in Palm Springs?

For the best views in town, swap your Palm Springs car rental for something that will take you a little higher up. The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is the world's largest aerial tramway. It travels for over two and a half miles through jaw-dropping scenery, letting you experience the dazzling Chino Canyon as you climb to Mount San Jacinto. Want to make the trip more romantic? Check out the Ride 'n' Dine offers.

Stay out of the desert heat when you spend a couple of hours visiting the Palm Springs Art Museum.

Nature in Palm Springs

For some fresh air, head to Indian Canyons in your car rental from Palm Springs. You can hike or go horseback riding through the picturesque scenery here. The desert landscape just begs to be explored the old-fashioned way, so park your Palm Springs car hire and get moving.

A little further afield, the famous Joshua Tree National Park makes a great day trip destination. 40 miles away in your rental car from Palm Springs, this park is characterized by rugged rocks, cactus-studded landscapes, and the unique Joshua trees. Avoid it in the height of summer, when soaring temperatures can make it unpleasant and unsafe. Between autumn and spring, this is worth a trip.
