If the F.D.W or the Supercover (insurance) are included in the rental then the credit card or debit card will be used as a guarantee for the rental but we will not block any amount on it. If there is no credit card or debit card available then you can deposit 100 euro in cash as a guarantee which will be sufficient to cover any traffic fines and the amount of fuel there will be in the car when you receive it. So practically the 100 euros has nothing to do with the insurance. You will be supplied with a receipt for that and the 100 euro will refunded when the rental is finished. As Rhodes Car Rental we created this procedure in order to make it possible to all costumers …even if they do not use credit cards to hire a car. In case the FDW or the supercover are not included in the price the renter must cover the amount of excess which depend of the car type . That can be made by credit card or cash.
On the Greek market the fuel policy is very simple. The hirer is obliged to return the car with the same amount of fuel, as he received it. If the vehicle has less fuel then the tenant is charged for the difference. In the case that the car is returned with more fuel, there is no refund for it.
The delivery of the vehicle in another location is possible and in most cases there is no additional charge for it.
The kilometers are completely free and that means that every day you can drive as many kilometers as you wish without extra charge.
