Location information for California

One of the most naturally beautiful states in the USA, California is popular with families as there is plenty for children to do. However, California's lively nightlife and picturesque beaches means that couples will also be entertained. In order to see California's top attractions, it is best to use a cheap California car hire company.

For children, California could be described as the holiday of a lifetime as it is full of family-orientated attractions such as Disneyland and Universal studios. Further to the south of the state, the San Diego Zoo also attracts visitors from all over the globe, and driving a hire car in California down the coast is a great way to get here.

There are a number of large cities in California to explore such as Los Angeles and San Francisco. Sacramento is popular with those who prefer a more laid back atmosphere, while Santa Cruz is blessed with beautiful beaches.

Few people visit California without spending at least a little time shopping. Those with money to burn will want to head straight to Rodeo drive in Los Angeles, while there are plenty of more modest shops and market places located around the city.

Those with a strong sense of adventure can take advantage of San Diego's close proximity to Mexico to drive their budget California rental car across the border and explore for a day. The state of California also has a number of large and lovely national parks to explore, of which Yosemite National Park is perhaps the best known.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
