    Learn About Car Hire Surcharges in Stellenbosch

    Car Hire Fees in StellenboschYou certainly are not the only one if you are browsing quite a few discount travel sites to discover the ideal rate on your next auto hire in Stellenbosch. However, not all quoted car hire daily prices are the same. Many cheap car hire deals aren't what they pretend to be. Some unscrupulous car hire businesses do not reveal mandatory fees to obscure the actual cost of reserving a vehicle in Stellenbosch. Understand that if you opt-for that discount offer elsewhere, you'll have a hefty bill waiting for you at the pick-up counter, and the total cost may be more than Auto Europe's advertised rates.

    We make a big effort to provide an inclusive, transparent rate to our valued clients. We've learned that savvy travelers like to understand the full cost of their car hire when they book. To help you, we have highlighted several common fees which many clients traveling to Stellenbosch may not be familiar with. The short guide which follows should help you understand auto hire industry jargon and avoid overpaying for your Stellenbosch car.

    One Way Car Hire Fees in Stellenbosch

    $$$$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    Often referenced on your quote as International One Way Fee, Domestic One Way Fee, Vehicle Return Fee, or Drop Charge, a one-way fee is the charge car hire companies require when you are picking up your vehicle in Stellenbosch and dropping it off in another location. It includes the transportation costs in shifting their local fleet around to maintain an inventory of vehicles in all locations and can range from €10 - €1,000 depending upon the specifics of your vehicle and itinerary. Domestic drop charges are typically significantly lower than international one way fees. If you're planning a one-way trip and are looking for creative ways to reduce your one way surcharge, call our team of experts and we'll work with you to save you money on your one way car hire in Stellenbosch.

    Local Tax Charges Related To Driving a Car Hire in Stellenbosch

    $ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    There are many names for local car hire taxes, including Road Tax, Vehicle License Fee, Environmental Fee or Eco Surcharge, Credit Card Processing Fee, or Road Safety Fee. The cost of these mandatory charges is usually low (€1 - €5 per day), and they are required by law for drivers in many locations around the world. Many online car hire services do not disclose these "hidden fees," so we make an effort to be up front and transparent about them so you know what you'll be paying for your car hire in Stellenbosch before you depart on your trip.

    Office Costs for Car Hire in Stellenbosch

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    Parking space at a major airport or train station comes at a premium, and to cover this cost, car hire agencies who offer convenient pick-up and drop-off right at these terminals will often pass a portion of these costs to travelers in the form of an Airport Surcharge, Premium Location Surcharge, Parking Fee or Rail Station Surcharge. There is a way to avoid these car hire fees. If you don't mind traveling to a downtown location in Stellenbosch to pick-up your vehicle, you can avoid paying this convenience cost, but most travelers who factor in the expense and time of catching a cab to a downtown office opt for airport or rail-station pick-up, justifying the extra cost as a worthwhile expense to get on the road faster and maximize their time in Stellenbosch. Wherever you choose to pick up your car hire in Stellenbosch, we recommend that you pay careful attention to the office's business hours on your Auto Europe voucher so that you can return your vehicle when their office is open. This way you can avoid costly Late Return Fees, sometimes called Out of Hours Fees.

    Car Hire Petrol Policy Fees and Surcharges

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    Pay careful attention to whether your car hire contract says Full to Full or Full to Empty for your fuel policy. The type of fuel policy you have will help you understand if you need to fill your vehicle with gas before dropping it off or not. If you are required to do so, do it to avoid charges which can be greater than the cost of filling the tank.

    Driver Charges and Fees for Hiring a Car in Stellenbosch

    $$$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    If you plan to have more than one driver, you may be asked to pay an Additional Driver Fee at the counter when you pick up your car hire in Stellenbosch. If you can have a single driver for your trip, you can typically avoid this fee.

    Additionally, some car hire agencies in Stellenbosch will assign a Young Driver Surcharge when hiring to drivers under the age of 25 (or in some cases 21). The same is true with Senior Driver Fees which may be added to car hire contracts for drivers over the age of 65.

    It's important to note, however, that not every local car hire operator will charge these fees (and even if they do, some charge less than others). If you fall in these age brackets, call Auto Europe's reservation specialists and we can help you find the best deal on your Stellenbosch car hire.
