When you are looking for the car rental you want to get best possible service with great prices! But in order to get the best out of it you need to know basic car rental terms and meaning of many short codes!
Car rental companies use abbreviations in order to confuse clients and to give them “great deals” that happen to be not so great. So we are here explaining you what every car rental deal should have included.
This is basic insurance that gives you responsibility for damages of the car, but not the full damage but some part of it. Usually excess amount (amount that you can be charged when you damage car) is from 500€ to 1500€ (but it depends on car group). When offering “great deals” some car rental agencies just drop CDW insurance and leaves you to full responsibility for the damage of the car (if damage is total then you pay whole car). Usually it costs 2-10€ per day and they drop it in order to attract more clients. Also if you don’t have CDW insurance car rental company can make authorization on your credit card in amount of car value (that is like 20 000 to 50 000 euros).
Theft protection is insurance that you don’t get charged if your rental car gets stolen. If you don’t have this insurance you are risking whole amount of car. Car rental agencies sometimes “drop” this insurance to get better prices but they do not notify you that you don’t have TP they just remove that TP icon and you don’t even see it. Then when you come to rental location car rental agent will sell you TP but for bigger price than you could have online and it might be over 20% of your car rental.
Ok, you will say that unlimited mileage is included in every car rental but think again. Lot of car rental agencies and companies limit mileage for short term rentals (1 – 2 days) to 200-400 kilometers. Usually you won’t even know that you don’t have unlimited mileage until you drop off rental car and then they will charge you for additional mileage.
Car rental agencies have special people employed that are there to manipulate your mind and create overwhelmingly car rental offers that you go crazy after. But if you read those offers carefully you will see that lot of basic things for every car rental are missing (like CDW, TP, unlimited mileage,…) and that they are just ripping you off. Once you get ripped off you will be careful but don’t learn on your own mistakes, learn on others mistakes!
