Rent a cheap car or van between agency

Where to rent a cheap car?

Car rental is also benefiting from the low cost phenomenon. Signs like Budget, Firefly or Rent a Car often offer very attractive prices. What’s more, the prices offered online are generally cheaper than in an agency. You’ll get the best rates by focusing on standard models in the “Mini” and “Economy” categories.

What types of car can can i rent?

On, you will find rental offers for the following types of vehicles: Mini, Economy, Intermediate, Road, Estate, SUV/Crossover, MPV, Cabriolet, Minibus/Van and Leisure Vehicles. High-end and luxury vehicles are found in the Premium category. You can also rent utility vehicles.

Can we rent a car monthly or for a long period?

Some agencies allow you to rent a car for several months. However, be careful about the number of kilometers authorized per day or the total duration of your rental. Depending on the agencies, payment may be required in one go.

From what age can I rent a car in France?

Most agencies in France and Europe allow rental from the age of 21. Some brands such as Sixt, Economy.Rentals, or Europcar accept it from the age of 18, under certain conditions (age of license, category of vehicle).

Note that agencies almost always apply additional fees if you are a young driver.

In the United States and Canada, any driver under the age of 25 will be subject to special conditions, to be checked on a case-by-case basis according to the agency. Even if they remain rare, some agencies offer rentals from 18 or 20 years old, especially in Quebec and New York State.

Higher-end vehicles or utility vehicles are often reserved for people over 25, with a minimum license of 1 to 3 years.

What are the documents to provide for the rental of a car?

To rent a car, you will need to provide:

Your identity card or passport

Your driver’s license

A credit card in your name

Proof of address (depending on the agency)

A phone number (depending on the agency)

American Express, Visa and Mastercard credit cards are the most commonly accepted by rental companies. If you have another type of credit card, check well in advance that this type of card will be accepted by the rental agency.

Getaround, Free2Move and Virtuo work with mobile applications that allow you to manage all stages of the rental on your smartphone. To identify yourself, you will need to take a photo of your identity card and your driving license.

Do I need to take out insurance to rent a car?

Throughout the world, civil liability or “third-party insurance” covering bodily injury and material damage caused to others, are covered by the insurance included in the rental price. On the other hand, in many countries outside Europe, the guarantee “Personal injury” which covers the driver is not included in the basic insurance, in which case it is recommended that you take out additional insurance to cover you in the event of an accident.

Rental companies also offer several types of additional insurance to cover the following cases: vehicle repair costs in the event of an accident for which you are responsible, protection of other passengers in the vehicle, protection against theft and vandalism. If they are not mandatory, these insurances are strongly recommended, especially in the United States and Canada where the sums can become dizzying in the event of a problem. The brand must tell you the amount of its deductible, which corresponds to the maximum amount you would have to pay in the event of a claim.

If you have a credit card such as Gold Mastercard or Visa Premier, you may benefit from certain protections in the event of breakdown or theft. Check with your bank to find out the details of the guarantees and whether they apply in the country where you are renting.

Please note: depending on the country of rental, certain insurances are compulsory and the credit card insurance is not sufficient.

Can you rent a car without a credit card?

It is possible to book a car rental without a credit card. As this practice is less common, it will be necessary to check on a case-by-case basis the means of payment accepted by the rental agency, as well as the conditions that apply. If you wish to pay for your rental by debit card, prepaid card, cash, holiday vouchers or bank cheque, you will be asked to make a deposit and/or take out specific insurance.
