Do I need a credit card in order to rent a car in Nantes?
To be able to rent a car, you will need to have a valid credit card in the name of the main driver. Please be advised without a proper credit card in the name of the main driver you will be not able to rent a car. Prepaid credit cards, cash or debit cards will not be accepted. Also, you cannot use credit card form somebody else. If you arrive at the local office and you cannot present a credit card on your name, the local agent will refuse to give you the car. A proper credit card is a mandatory document for renting a car.
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.
What happens if I bring my rental car back late?
During the reservation process, you will be asked to choose exact drop off time. In case that you will be late and fail to return the car at the indicated time, you should urgently contact the local car rental agency. The calculation of our rental day is based on 24 hours and an additional charge can be added to your bill for returning the car after the indicated time. Late drop off is possible but it depends on the local supplier and their opening hours. If you have any delay, please contact the local supplier. Some local offices close at a certain time, so it is essential to advise them. There are not obligated to keep the car. To avoid surprises and unexpected extra costs please check the terms and conditions.
For how long I need to hold my drivers license in order to rent a car in Nantes?
The most suppliers require a valid drivers license for at least one year. Some agencies can ask you to provide a drivers license which is valid for more, for instance, two or even three years. We always strongly recommend our clients to see the terms and conditions for selected agency and car and read them carefully. At the time of rental, your driver license needs to have the required time of validity. This is a mandatory document and if you fail to provide it, the agent refuses to give you the car due to an invalid drivers license.
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.
