Meet at the car rental company on the big day

It seems obvious but don't forget the departure date otherwise it's the car rental company who won't be happy. Think about your ID, your bank card and your license. If you forget, you won't be able to borrow the car, which would be a shame... The classic procedures for car rental then follow. The DiscoverCars partner car rental company will first need to check your license and will ask you for a security deposit if it was not requested when booking. Last step before the big departure: the inventory of the vehicle and some signatures. You will be asked to note the condition of the vehicle on a completely standard rental contract before signing it.

DiscoverCars cancellation: how does it work?

You can cancel your rental as long as the departure date has not yet passed. Depending on the car rental company's general conditions of sale, you may be reimbursed fully, partially or not at all. You may also be liable to pay cancellation fees. You will find details of the cancellation conditions in your reservation confirmation email or in the rental company's T&Cs.

DiscoverCars really cheaper than the bus, train or plane?

The first point to consider is the departure address. Many car rental companies are located on the outskirts of cities. It is therefore not always easy to go there to rent the car. This journey represents an expense that is often forgotten. The second point to consider is the arrival address. What to do when you arrive 30 kilometers from Paris? Uber, RER? This also represents a cost and a significant waste of time.
Finally, transport costs (gasoline and tolls) are your responsibility. Some French motorways are excessively expensive so be careful before booking. We strongly advise you to look at the price of your journey on Mappy.fr to get an idea of ​​the total cost.
