How To Choose The Right Car Rental Agent Abroad
The popular price comparison tool from Hispacar will help you find the cheapest car rental agent in travel destinations such as Spain, France, Portugal and Italy.
By default our booking engine will return the cheapest company in each vehicle category, however regular customers can also book with their preferred supplier instead.
Many Hispacar clients prefer to book with a multinational car hire company like Hertz , Sixt or Avis. The reputation of these rent a car companies is, in most cases, a guarantee to book with complete peace of mind and avoid unexpected situations upon collection of the vehicle.
The rates in most european countries, including Spain, France, Portugal and Italy, will include CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) with an excess which normally depends on the typ of vehicle you want to rent (the bigger/more expensive the car, the higher the insurance excess).
The insurance excess is the maximum financial risk of the person who rents the car in case of an accident. In case of an accident where the customer is to blame he/she will have to take car of the expenses up to the excess amount. Any expenses exceeding the excess will be taken car of by the insurance and/or the car hire company.
Depending on the length of your stay and the number of kilometers you are going to drive it may be worth while to consider the optional Super CDW Insurance (Super Collision Damage Waiver). By paying this supplement you can reduce your financial liability in case of damages to the rental vehicle.
If you book a car at http://www.hispacar.com in any of our most popular destinations, including the Canary Islands, the Algarve, the Costa del Sol or the Balearics make sure to check the insurance conditions as the amount payable to waive the excess can sometimes exceed the basic rental price, specially in the low season.
With the Hispacar booking engine it is very simple to calculate the difference between the basic coverage and the full risk insurance. Make sure to flag the corresponding checkbox when you are looking for the cheapest rent a car online and remember, that the loest basic rental price may not be the cheapest option in the end.
