If you have a party of 5 book a 5 car door so that everyone will have their space. Do not book an “urban” 3 car door. They seat only 4 people.
Think about Cargo space! Some cars can fit 2 large suitcases or 4 small carry-ons in the trunk of a car.
If you are a group of 7 a 5 to 7 seater is workable for short trips and parking however for arrivals and departures from the airport an 8 to 9 seater MINIVAN or SUV is recommended. A valid driver’s license is required.

Before leaving with a vehicle a pre-authorization hold will automatically be placed on your credit card.
We accept most major credit cards. Debit cards, gift cards, and prepaid credit cards are not accepted. Credit cards accepted : Visa, Mastercard, American Express
The card used at the time of purchase must be that of the main driver who must be present at the time of signing the contract. This person is legally responsible for the vehicle during the rental period.
Attention! The amount of the authorization hold can range anywhere from 650 euros to 3000 euros depending on the class model of the rental car. The authorization amount will not be available during the time the rental car is being used. We will place the authorization hold plus the estimated charges on the customer’s credit card.
Please verify your credit limit on your credit card and notify your bank in advance if the credit limit needs to be increased.
Without a valid pre-authorization the rental car will not be delivered to the customer.
If the rental car is not returned on the date and time noted on the rental contract the customer will be subjected to additional charges.
