A confirmed booking can be cancelled/amended no less than 72 hours before the pick-up time free of charge. In case of a booking cancellation/amend less than 72 hours before the pick-up time, a fee of 15% of the total rental price will be charged, but no less than the price for 1 rental day. All booking prepayments will be fully refunded, if an alternative vehicle can not be provided.Additional information:
The branding of the booked vehicle can be removed if there is a written request from the LESSEE. If the request has received a written approval from the LESSOR, the stickers can be removed only after that. The ad branding removal fee is on the price of 20 euro for standard cars and by individual offer for minibuses and LCVs. Some restrictions are possible. The stickers must be removed from a Top Rent A Car employee. In case of unauthorized branding stickers removal, the LESSEE will be charged 40 euro for standard cars and 240 euro for minibuses and LCVs. If the removal has damaged the dye or polish, there is an additional fee, which cost will be determined according the established price list of the LESSOR.
In all cases of `No show`, without notice in advance, the LESSEE will receive no refund of the prepaid money and the reservation will be canceled from the car schedule.
A ‘No-show’ are all cases when the LESSEE:
- wishes to cancel but have not inform the company before the rental is due to start;
- is unable to pick up the car at the agreed time and date due to some circumstances when the LESSEE did not notify Top Rent A Car. The exception is customers who have indicated arriving by flight and have provided its number when their delay was due to a delayed or canceled flight;
- fails to provide a valid ID and full driving license required when picking up the vehicle;
- does not have sufficient funds to pay the full price of the reservation and / or cannot leave a deposit for the car according to the conditions for the respective class.
Extension of car rental reservation after pick-up:
In case the Lessee would like to extend his reservation, he needs to send an inquiry by email or by phone call to the Reservation department of the company. The price for extension will be calculated according to the most current price list taking into consideration the total number of the rental days. Our advice is to ask for an extension of the car rental as soon as possible in order to avoid the danger of the depletion of the availability.
When the extended rental includes cross border, a fee of 20 € is applied for extension of the driving abroad power of attorney with up to 7 days. In case of extensions for more than 7 days the driving abroad power of attorney must be reissued and new one-time cross border fee according to the price list is applicable.
Please, note: Upon confirmation by the Lessor of the possibility of extending the rental, the Lessee must pay the full price for the additional days in order to confirm the extension of the rental agreement. Once the payment has been made, the necessary documents will be available at the rental location of the company where the vehicle was provided for pick-up. Top Rent A Car is not responsible for the consequences in case the customer did not take the new documents.
