Even more advantages of renting a car at the airport
Your personal vacation wishes determine the most suitable rental car category. Are you leaving with only hand luggage or a large suitcase and a whole range of sports equipment? In the company of your spouse, with the whole family or a large group of friends? Do you go for adventurous back roads, especially highways or do you also go to mountainous areas? Either way, you can pre-book the car that meets your expectations.
Choose your car model remotely
It is that simple. You always book a category of car – such as small, economy, compact or midsize – and no specific make or model. Different types of cars fall into each category. You can select features such as air conditioning, automatic transmission and number of doors. So you always book your ideal rental car.
You book by brand or model
With each category, you see a photo of a car. These are only examples, which give an indication of the car waiting for you at your destination. You can therefore book the Small category with a Fiat Panda as an example, and obtain a Citroën C1 as a rental car on site. You cannot take rights from the image, but you can take rights from the specifications. The rental car must therefore comply.
The car rental company should always inform you about the luggage and passenger capacity by means of suitcase and people icons. Because the types of cars and therefore the trunk dimensions differ within a category, this is always an indication.
Supposing the reserved car category is not available to you for some reason?
The local partner is then obliged to deliver a car to you with at least the same or better specifications. So if it can’t fulfill your reservation wish, it usually means a free upgrade. Please note that the rental agreement also states “free upgrade” before signing it. If you have any doubts about the alternative offered, do not hesitate to contact the rental company (indicated on your voucher or booking form).
