Booking FAQ

How are prices being calculated?

Our car rental prices are based on a 24-hour time period, e.g. if you reserve and pick up your car rental at 14:00 you will have to drop it off at 14:00 at the latest. If you return the car late you often will be charged for an additional day.

Will I get the exact make and model which I have reserved?

Both our website and the car rental supplier can only guarantee a certain car category and not a specific make or model. Car rental companies feature cars from many different manufacturers in the same category which should have the same features as confirmed at time of reservation.

What is the FULL-FULL fuel policy?

No surprises. The fuel tank will be full or part-full when you pick your car up. Just replace the fuel you’ve used before you drop your car off and you’ll pay no fuel fees at all. All the car rental companies we work with offer the FULL/FULL fuel policy.

When will I have to pay for the rental?

The deposit is paid the moment you book on our website. The remaining is paid directly to the car rental when you pick-up the car.

Can I book without a credit card?

Unfortunately at the moment it's not possible to book without a credit card.

Can I change my booking?

Yes, you can easily change your booking details. Just write us to [email protected] Please note that amendments can take up to 48 hours to be processed.

Does my reservation get immediately confirmed when I book?

No. When you book through our website your reservation will be pending until the car rental agents confirms the availability. Once confirmed, we will send you the booking confirmation. In cases where the requested vehicle is not available, we will contact you to advise on other options. You can still decide to cancel your reservation free of cost at any stage by emailing us on [email protected] .

Will I get refunded if I decide to cancel my booking?

Yes. You can cancel your booking up to 24 hours before - no questions asked - and we will refund any deposit paid.

If the car rental company cancels my reservation, will AzoresRentalCars be responsible for providing me an alternative? What happens to the deposit paid?

No. When the cancellation is due to circumnstances beyond our control (eg. car rental goes into bankrupcy, changes nature of business, natural disaster, etc.) AzoresRentalCars cannot be held responsible and an alternative would need to be discussed with the car rental directly. We will refund back the deposit paid when reserving.

Insurance FAQ

How is my rental car insured?

All rental cars have a public/third party liability insurance with a minimum coverage amount as per local legislation.

Do I need extra insurance?

At time of pick-up the car rental company's representative may offer you extra insurance such as CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) or SuperCDW (to reduce or exclude the excess), Personal Accident Insurance, Theft Insurance or other insurances. You need to check for yourself if you need and want any of the optional insurances offered locally.
