  2. As soon as you set the dates and the pick-up/drop-off locations, a new page showing the cars available for the selected period, as well as the total cost of the rental will open. Note that all rentals are calculated on a 24-hour basis. However, you are allowed to return the car up to 1 hour later without being charged for an additional day. More than 1 hour delay counts as an additional day.

As soon as we receive your order, AUTORENT® will accept it or not depending on the availability. This is the reason why making your reservation some time in advance is important, especially during the peak season of August.

In case AUTORENT® cannot confirm your order for any reason a cancellation e-mail will be sent to you with suggestions on changing your order; no payments will be captured from your account.
It is essential that you provide a correct e-mail address and mobile phone number, as the voucher contains important information on the delivery of the rental car at your destination.
