    VI. Fees and Charges

    Reservation of credit

    You must provide a valid credit card in the driver´s name when you pick up the vehicle. We will reserve credit on your card (i.e. block credit so that it is unavailable for your use) to an amount that covers the anticipated cost of your rental, including all the options you have taken, a full tank of fuel (in case the vehicle is returned empty) and a sum to cover a portion of the Non-Waivable Excess that you may be responsible for if the vehicle is damaged during your rental (see Insurance & Waivers above) unless you have taken SuperCover or All included to eliminate your potential liability to us for damage.

    In summary, you should ensure that your credit card has available funds at the start of the rental, as follows:

    SUPERCOVER TAKEN (i.e. damage risk) Rental charges payable at the counter* (including optional services taken) + 150€
    SUPERCOVER NOT TAKEN (i.e. damage risk) Rental charges payable at the counter* (including optional services taken) + 850€

    *This means that; if you have booked a prepaid rate, the amount prepaid will not be considered for the reservation of credit. If you have booked a non-prepaid rate, the rate for rental days will be considered as well on the reservation of credit.

    Fines and Penalties

    You are responsible for paying the penalty for circulation, improper parking, or other penalties you may have incurred during the rental. Relevant charges will be passed on to the customer, along with administrative expenses, as follows:

    - Administrative expenses for damages. 60 - €
    - Administrative expenses for fines. 40 - €

    Go back

    Methods of payment

    Although we identify anticipated charges at the start of the rental and reserve credit on your credit card to cover these (see below) we do not take payment from you until the end. This is because there are a number of uncertain or unexpected costs that may arise during the course of the rental that we are unable to estimate on pick-up (see Potential Additional Charges below). Your payment options are as follows:

    CREDIT CARD We accept VISA, MasterCard and American Express. Note: a Credit Card Fee may apply (see below)*.
    DEBIT CARD We accept embossed VISA or MasterCard but do not accept Electron cards or those authorized for electronic use only. SuperCover becomes mandatory when paying with a debit card.
    CASH Is accepted for payments required on return of the vehicle only.

    *If you use your credit card to pay your rental charges a small fee will be added to cover the costs imposed on us by the credit card company for processing the payment, as follows:.

    SPAIN €4
    (unless the credit card is issued by European bank – in which case no charge is made)

    If you choose to use a debit card (see above) to pay, no charge will apply.

    Go back

    Credit card fee

    If the credit card is not issued by European banking institution, a charge of €4 will apply to cover the cost of the processing the payment.

    You can use a valid debit card (*) to return the vehicle in which case no additional charge will apply.

    (*) Electron cards or those with the words “electronic use only” are not accepted.

    Airport service charge (ASC)

    All rentals served in any of our offices located within the facilities of an airport in Spain, are subject to an additional charge of 8% on the rental rate, extras and fuel tank (VAT not included). The rental rate (which includes insurance for third parties, CDW and TP) has the charge already included in the price you have reserved. On all other concepts, 8% will be applied at the time of formalizing the contract at the office counter. This charge does not apply to offices located outside the airport area.
