My driving licence has been stolen. Can I optionally present a police report in order to be able to pick up the vehicle?

In order to pick up the vehicle, a DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) form attesting that you have submitted an application for a new driving licence must be presented.

In addition to the basic price of the car rental, are there any other costs?

There may be if you decide to sign up for an additional product that was not originally included in your reservation (additional excess reduction products, baby / child seat, GPS, etc.)

Can the car I rented be driven by anyone other than me?

No, on any reservation, only the person named in the rental agreement may drive the vehicle. However, if you want to include another driver, you can request the inclusion of an additional driver at the beginning of the rental. The presence of this driver at the location to present the required documents is mandatory. This service will have an additional cost of €9 per day (maximum of €180 per rental agreement).

Can I return the car later, after the time stated in the contract?

If you return the vehicle outside the expected period of the end of the contract, an additional daily rate will be charged based on our public rates (this amount also includes the additional value of all extras purchased at the beginning of the contract).
Please note that our contracts offer a 29-minute grace period. After this period has elapsed, an additional amount will be charged in 24-hour slots, according to our prevailing National Public Rates.

My contract includes several additional products. When I extend the contract, does the additional value only consist of the daily price of the car?

The extension of the contract presupposes its extension with respect to the rental of the vehicle as well as the services and conditions initially contracted. If you wish to change any of the contracted conditions or services, you will need to sign a new rental agreement, and to do so, go to any of our stations.

Is a specific driving licence required to drive a commercial vehicle?

In order to drive any of our vehicles, only a car driving licence is required.

Can I chose a specific make or model of car in advance?

All bookings are made to a group of vehicles with several similar models. Therefore, within the selected group, the vehicle that is currently available at the station will be available. If you wish to rent a particular vehicle, you should confirm your preference during the reservation, so that in case of availability, such preference is considered.

Can the value of the excess be reduced to 0€?

Yes, if you purchase additional protection products, such as the Premium Pack, Premium Gold Pack (includes wheel and window protection) or Platinium Pack. However, a credit card guarantee must be left in the driver's name of between €600 and €1,000, depending on the vehicle selected.
Packs cost between €20 and €41.50 per day, for a maximum of 15 days per rental contract (28 days).Glass and wheel protection costs €8 per day, for a maximum of 15 days per rental contract.
The limitations of liability do not apply in cases of violation of the rules of use of the vehicle, wilful or negligent conduct, non-compliance with the Highway Code or whenever the situations giving rise to liability occur when the Car is not driven by the Customer or by an Authorised Driver.

After this grace period there is no return to the place and the vehicle will have to be picked up / returned at one of our stations. In the event of collection after this grace period has elapsed, one additional day shall be charged. This service is not available on weekends.

Can I use the vehicle outside Portugal?

Guerin vehicles are not allowed to travel in Eastern European countries (except Slovenia and Slovakia) and / or Africa, as well as others included on the green card.
