All people who use the rent a car service need a vehicle, which is always available. Even if they travel for tourist or business purposes, some customers will need to leave the country with a rented car. On the europa.eu website, it is specified in the Principle of Non-Discrimination, that car rental agencies can set their prices and conditions for this option. However, going with a rented car abroad depends on several situations.
The two situations of the rental service, where you may go abroad with a car, are the following:
Remember: In order to leave the country with a rented car, certain taxes and a special set of requirements will be applied for each individual. Each agency will implement its own set of conditions and rates.
The exception to the rule: Leaving the rented car outside the country will not be allowed by Bucharest Otopeni rent a car companies if the car falls in a certain range. Sports and luxury vehicles, whose purchase price exceeds 100,000 euro, cannot travel abroad. We do that, along with the rest of the car rental agencies.
In such a situation, certain conditions must be set. These rules are applied by Rent-4U as well as other car rental companies.
Apart from the car rental agreement signed by both parties, the rental company must give its consent so that you can leave the country. In our example ( Bucharest rental company ), the agency should make a delegation so that you can leave the borders of Romania. Furthermore, the customer must respect all the conditions of the rental process.
As a result, the vehicle rental service without warranty will not apply in this situation. To allow the vehicle to travel outside the country, this trust fund will be required. No agency can allow the rented car to go abroad without such a deposit. Also, it is different and is applied in accordance with the value of the rental car.
We must understand that a car leaving the country can reach thousands of kilometres. No car rental agency wants such an event. We do not want to rent a car for 100 euros, which comes back from abroad with 2500 kilometres travelled after 4 days of rental. If we did that, we would be out of business within six months each. This means that when the rented car leaves the country, a number of kilometres will be established for the entire rental period. Anything extra will be charged on top of that.
While this car rental system is not offered by a rental company, we implement it. The service is called One-Way-Rent and it is rented solely on the basis of a credit card and warranty. As with the previous case, the same conditions will apply. Obviously, every agency will only allow this service in certain countries. Also, in addition to the actual fees, Drop-Off costs will be applied. These are established according to each country. For example: At our company, the Drop-Off fee for Greece will be 300 euros. In addition to this, the price will be added to go in that country.
For this action, you need to follow the data from the car hire agent. He will visualize the route of the car via GPS and will be able to manage the parking in a private area. If this parking is not available, it will indicate the parking location for a video surveillance area. Carefully follow the instructions of the rental car agent, because in case of theft or vandalism, you will be responsible.
|Destination Country||With Return||With Drop-Off|
|Ungaria||100 de euro||350 de euro|
|Serbia||100 de euro||350 de euro|
|Bulgaria||100 de euro||300 de euro|
|Grecia||100 de euro||400 de euro|
|Franta||150 de euro||450 de euro|
|Spania||200 de euro||550 de euro|
|Germania||150 de euro||450 de euro|
|Slovacia||100 de euro||350 de euro|
|Portugalia||200 de euro||550 de euro|
|Slovenia||100 de euro||350 de euro|
* For other countries, rates will be discussed over the phone
First and most important of all, you will have to inform the rent a car agent for this operation. For this, the rental company will have to provide you the correct documentation, the necessary information, the valid insurance for that area, as well as the rest of the specific documents. The vehicle must comply with the special traffic regulations in each country. For example: In the case of Switzerland, other rules apply.
If you want to travel in countries which are outside the European Union with the rented vehicle, and the driver's license is not European or international,... we will have to see if the document is valid in that state. An example: The Romanian driver's license is not valid in Russia.
That was all the information required to go abroad with a rental car. All data are updated to 2023. We wanted to talk about anything that had to do with that. Also, thank you for coming with us all the way and we wish you a good trip!
