How do I pay for my booking in Cologne?
The amount to be paid online can be different. Some of the rental car agencies require a full prepayment. Other agencies will ask you to prepay a certain amount of money before arrival and the rest needs to be paid on arrival at the local office. You will be asked to pay the deposit online and the amount will be indicated on our website. The outstanding balance will be covered on arrival when you come to pick up the car. When you choose your car you will be instructed on our website on how to pay for your rental. For the online payment, you can use any card, even with a different name.
Why do you need my flight number?
When you make your reservation, we will always ask to provide the flight number. It is important for the local rental car supplier, so they can know when you will arrive. If they see that your flight is delayed they will normally keep the car until your arrival. It is also very important to leave the flight number on the reservation if you have an option MEET AND GREAT. What's that mean it means that rental car representative will wait for you in the arrival hall holding a poster with your name in order to lead you to the car. Your flight number most likely contains two letters and 4 numbers. If you are not coming in by flight, you can enter 0000 to be able to make the reservation online.
What is going to happen if I cause a damage to the rental car?
The driver is responsible for any damage on the rented car. The amount can be up to the blocked deposit on your credit card. For any accident caused, you will need to get a police report. Please also contact directly the local rental car agency. They will instruct you what is the procedure. If you don't have taken out any extra insurance, you might be charged up to the deposit amount blocked on your credit card. If you have a full comprehensive refund insurance, please ask for the invoice of the damage by the local company. With the invoice, you can request a refund by the insurance.
Is the insurance included in the rental price?
Please, note that usually full insurance will not be included in the rental rate. The type of insurance which is included in your rental rate depends on your residence country, the location where you are renting and on the local car rental supplier. We strongly recommend entering terms and conditions for the selected location and car rental agency and read them carefully in order to learn which type of insurance is included in the rental rate. You can also find an additional type of insurance which is offered by the local supplier. For some quotes we do offer a full comprehensive refund insurance you can purchase on our website. More information you will see online.
How are rental prices calculated?
Please be advised as an online car rental broker our prices can changing constantly. Since we are working with different local companies, we can negotiate the prices better and do have most likely better rates than the local companies. However, our rental day is based on 24 hours. We do not rent cars per hour. If you wish to rent a car for a few hours only you have to pay a full rental day. For instance, if you decide to pick up the car at 10:00 am and drop it off the same day at 22:00 pm you will still be charged for 24 hours rental as we do not provide rates for half day.

I even had a better car that the one I booked. Everything was fine from the internet booking process to the end of the trip.
