    Methods to Avoid Surprise Charges on Your Next Grenoble Auto Hire

    You certainly are not by yourself if you have been searching several car hire sites to discover the ideal rate on your next car hire in Grenoble. But it's important to understand the numerous fees and car hire surcharges which might not be transparently included in your car hire quote. Don't be fooled by online rental agencies that advertise uncharacteristically low prices. These booking services are usually not displaying mandatory fees and taxes that are required by law in Grenoble. We do not believe in concealing fees in the fine print to bait-and-switch potential clients. When you arrange your Grenoble car with us you can be sure that the displayed inclusive rate is the price you'll pay. If you arrange a rental at a rate that's unbelievably low on another website, you will simply pay the difference at the pick-up counter when you get to Grenoble.

    When you want to know the actual daily rate of your Grenoble auto hire, search Auto Europe and discover transparency you won't find with our competitors. Savvy travelers want no-nonsense, up-front pricing and will not be duped by bait-and-switch tactics. To help you, we have summarised several common taxes and fees which quite a few customers traveling to Grenoble may not be familiar with. Read on and you will discover some of the most common add-on charges which bewilder and frustrate people who hope to book a car in Grenoble.

    Office Charges for Car Hires in Grenoble

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    Referred to on car hire contracts as Airport Surcharge, Rail Station Surcharge, Premium Location Surcharge, Parking Fees, Out of Hours Fees, or Late Return Fees, you should be aware that surcharges associated with your pick-up location are common in the industry. In essence this is a convenience fee charged by local operators. Companies have to pay for parking space on airport grounds, so travelers often pay a fee to account for this expense by the local agency. The amount of the fee can vary, but it's typically similar to the cost of hiring a taxi to a downtown location in Grenoble where the location surcharge wouldn't apply. Pay special attention to the hours of the office where you'll pick-up and drop-off your car to avoid out of hours or late return fees.

    Limited Mileage Vehicle Hire Add-On Charges

    $ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Always Disclosed by Others

    Many of the vehicles Auto Europe offers for hire in Grenoble include unlimited mileage, which allows you to drive as far as you need to without any additional charges. Some car hire contracts may not have this feature, however, so if you see Limited Miles or Limited Kilometers on your car hire contract pay close attention to this clause. At €0.50 - €2 per additional kilometer or mile that you drive, this fee can be a minor extra expense, or can add up fast depending upon how far you drive during your trip to Grenoble.

    Car Hire Fuel Policy Fees and Surcharges

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    Most car hire agreements in Grenoble require you to fill your vehicle with fuel prior to dropping it off at the agency when your trip is over. These Full to Full policies can result in a fee, charged after the fact, if you do not fill your vehicle up with gas or diesel fuel prior to dropping it off at the end of your trip. Pay close attention to your car hire contract, as you can generally save a little money by filling your tank yourself instead of relying on the local agency to do it for you.

    Value Added Tax for Car Hires in Grenoble

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    Commonly called the VAT tax or Value Added Tax on your car hire contract, the cost of this tax can be 15-30% and it is standard European sales tax which varies slightly depending upon the country you are hiring your car in. When you are analyzing your contract or quote, look for Including VAT, or Taxes Extra or Plus VAT to get a clear sense of whether this charge is included in your online car hire price in Grenoble or if this is something you should expect to pay locally.

    Extra Car Hire Fees Related to Vehicle Equipment in Grenoble

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Always Disclosed by Others

    If you've reserved extra equipment with your car hire (like child seats, GPS, ski-racks or snow chains), then you will be charged an additional Processing Fee or Administration Fee for this equipment (unless your online quote states that these costs are included in the total displayed price). Some destinations have specific requirements for traveling with children (who must be restrained in a properly-sized child seat or booster seat), so it's important to check the specific requirements in Grenoble to see if some of these optional car hire equipment items will be needed for your trip.


    Hire a Manual or Automatic Transmission Vehicle in Grenoble

    Grenoble stick or automatic rentalsWhile many of the most affordable vehicles to hire in Grenoble are stick shift, if you cannot drive a manual transmission you'll be happy to learn we make it hassle-free to sort and display local car hire options and showcase only automatic transmission cars available for hire. Thought of as an upgraded feature by some local companies, there is often less inventory when searching for automatic vehicles to hire. In most locations (such as in Europe) stick-shift transmission is standard for most vehicles for hire. It's easy to set a filter on your Auto Europe car booking search to include automatic transmission vehicles. Once you have filtered your car hire options based on the type of transmission you prefer, you can quickly apply some additional refinements to your search based on the local company you favor, your preferred car hire style, or pick-up location, it is simple to browse available inventory, or toggle additional filters including your preferred location, car hire operator, and even the class and size of your vehicle. There are just a few final decisions to make regarding optional insurance coverage from Auto Europe, etc. and then confirm your booking in seconds!
