The condition of the car rental you need to have at least 1 year old valid driving license and identity card / passport. International driving license is required for a license issued with non-latin characters.
How is calculated the length of the car rental?
One rental day means a 24 hour time period. So if someone in Monday at 16.00 would like to hire a car, and on the next day at 19.00 would like to drop off it, this count two days in respect of car hire. However, a surplus in one hour or less we don’t charge as an extra day.
When should I pay the deposit?
The deposit will be locked at the time of the ‘takeover’ of the rental car. To avoid problems, it is important to pay attention not to be set a too low daily limit on the credit card and the limit you should be increase in advance.
The basic amount of the deposit is 100,000 HUF. To the deposit we need the following information of the credit card:
- a credit card number (4 * 4 digits)
- the card expiry date
- and the code CV2 (the three-digit number in the signature strip at back of the card)
The amount of the deposit is deducted from the card?
The deposit will not be deducted from the credit card, it only will be blocked in that amount. This authorization is not a real transaction, has no transaction costs. When the renter returns the rental car, the deposit will be released. There are some of the credit cards, however, on which can’t be locked sum, in this case we will take off the money from the card.
When do I get to this amount back?
After the elimination of pre-authorize the turnaround time is approximately 2-3 days. In some cases, you may find that the amount are not visible on the bill even after 1-2 weeks either. In this case, don’t worry, our company released the deposit, the problem is likely that the communication between the banks is slow.
