What kind of car rental should we choose?

A rented car must be insured by the owner like any other vehicle, whether it is rented by a company or an individual. While there is specialized auto insurance for corporate fleets, individual owners must turn to traditional auto insurance. Private car rental also spares the driver any maintenance spending.

There are two types of car rental: professional car one and rental between individuals like that offered  for instance, by Get Around. It needs to be said though that the most common way of car rental consists of taking a vehicle from stations reserved exclusively for this service and then returning it to the same location. Then, there is the “free floating” car sharing which consists of making vehicles available to users within a defined area. Users can thus locate an available vehicle via the geolocation of their smartphones and book it.

The Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) protects the driver in case of an accident in which he is at fault.

This option covers the driver in case of thief in the event of attempted or actual theft of the rented car.

This option covers medical expenses for the occupants of your rental vehicle in the event you are involved in an accident.

Everyone can rent a car by respecting the conditions.

Age of the driver
In order to rent a car, the minimum age required is 21 years old with a valid driver’s license of at least 1 year. As far as a young driver is concerned, the driving licence must be at least 2 years old.
Required documents
The required documents are: ID card, driving license, proof of address and the driver’s certificate of insurance. There is also a document to fill in and sign for the car renting.
Types of vehicles
The driver chooses the type of vehicle he wants but every car must be insured.
Overload calculation
A young driver with a driving licence of at least 3 years is subject to a surcharge for his rental insurance. The surcharge is 100% of the reference rate for 1 year of validity of the licence. It decreases progressively each year if the young driver has not committed any driving offence
