Why do we advise you on this offer? The prices are very cheap; the booking easy and clear. The vehicles are usually brand new. Depending on your needs, special requests can be specified and you can immediately see what the final price will be! So, no surprises when it come to payment – the final price is fixed right from the start. This is not always the case with other brokers! If possible, choose the  “Value for Performance” certificate offers! Here the following is included and our guests confirm this in retrospect: 

  • Full insurance and car theft insurance! Please click  “without own risk.” Then, in the case of damage, damage to the glass, roof and tyres is also excluded of your own risk
  • Increase liability cover amount (min but € 1.0 million)
  • Unlimited kilometers
  • All local taxes
  • Airport provision and fees

Further important facts:

  • If you want to refrain from excluding the own risk, there are also cars starting at € 100.00/week
  • If you do not click on  “car hire in the airport ,” you can save a few euros, but then have to use a shuttle bus , maybe in a 7km distant village. Same for the drop off.
  • In the month of August and during the Easter holidays, the rental cars might be already fully booked and also significantly more expensive! You should act in advance
