What makes Smart so unique?

Daimler AG located in Stuttgart, Germany. Although they may not look German, Smart offers a wide range of
benefits that you expect to see in Mercedes.

Because of the small size, sometimes Smart is called a ‘four-wheel stool’.
Although Smart is one the smallest cars in the world, it’s able to take 13 passengers onboard. This fact is
registered in the Guinness Book of Records.
You can park Smart car transversely to the street. So, one parking lot for standard car provides enough
space for 2 Smarts!
With its attractive look, Smart is a permanent participant of different commercials.

What insurance is provided for Smart rental car?
When booking a rental car on our website, the price often includes a compulsory insurance package such
- CDW - collision damage waiver - this is the rental insurance, which is required in 90% of the cases of
rental cars. Without this insurance, rental companies won’t give you a car. Therefore, this insurance is
usually included in the price of the car rental and you can’t refuse it. This insurance protects you and
the rented car from most damage in case of an accident.
- TW - theft protection - theft insurance. Also, it is required in most cases and its cost is included in
- TP- third party- insurance of your liability to third parties.
Excess Fee is the amount of the deposit that will be blocked on your credit card in case of
damage or car theft. If at the end of the rental nothing bad happens with the car, then the entire amount of
the deposit will be returned to you on the credit card. On the other hand, whatever happens to the car, the
amount of the deposit is the maximum amount you risk. This is very convenient and allows you not to worry
about renting a car.
Some rental companies allow you to reduce the deposit by paying some part of the cost of insurance (Complete
cover package). In this case, the amount of excess fee can be reduced by 50%, and even 80% - for example,
from 1000 euros to 500 or even to 200.
The price for additional insurance may vary depending on the class of a vehicle and the company that
Approximately 30% of our tenants are ready to keep the necessary amount of deposit, but they are not really
ready to risk it. If this is your case, you can buy excess insurance right on our website. If you bought an
excess insurance, then in case of any problems with the car - whether it's just a scratch or significant
damage - our insurance company will refund the amount of the excess fee, withheld with you by the rental
company. In addition, our insurance covers the above-mentioned damage to the roof, the bottom and the glass
of the car, as well as the loss of some personal belongings. For example, there are cases when tenants leave
expensive glasses or a smartphone in a rental car. Such losses can also be reimbursed by our insurance.

from certain car group. All cars from the group you’ve chosen have approximately the same size and are
similar in their technical characteristics.

5-seater car with an automatic gearbox, you will get a car with an automatic transmission with a capacity of
not less than 5 passengers.

guaranteed car model".
How to get the cheapest Smart car rental deal?
- Choose the dates you need to start and end your rental. Specify the time when it will be convenient for you
to pick up and return the car. Don’t forget to leave enough time for the formalities at the airport!
Read the terms and conditions of your rental, paying attention to the following points:
Limited or unlimited mileage. If there are restrictions on the daily mileage, you could end up
paying more if you drive long distances. The unlimited mileage option could save you money in the
Insurance. Pay attention to the cost of full insurance and the amount of the Excess fee. It happens
that the cost of your rental is not very high, but the Excess fee is huge and the cost of insurance
is also high. This is made with the expectation that on arrival at the office, you will buy the
insurance and thus a rental company will reimburse the low cost of the rent. Count the total cost of
Fuel. Check the fuel options to find the best deal for you. (Pre-purchase fuel). This is suitable
for long trips over long distances or if you don’t have time to fill the tank before returning the
car. (Return tank Full) If you have time and a gas station is near by, this could save you money.
Think about what is more advantageous for you: buy excess insurance, full or partial insurance at
the rental office or buy neither one nor another. It can depend on the budget for a particular trip,
on your driving experience, on how familiar you are with the driving style in the region where you
rent a car, etc. Note that if you are a young driver, the amount of deposit for you may be higher
than for drivers whose age falls within the range of 25-75 years - this can be a criterion in making
a decision too. If you need help in this matter, please contact our support.
- Drivers License. You must have a current driver's license for rental. You can get an International
Driving License (IDL) from your home country if you plan ahead. IDL (International Driving License),
pay attention to whether IDL is required by the rental company. A cost of an IDL is not so high and
it’s very likely that you will manage to make it in time. However, if you have an IDL and it is not
required for rental, take the license with you anyway, it won’t hurt.
Credit Card. Check the rental conditions of the rental agency to see if you can pay for a rental by
debit card or cash if you don’t have a credit card.
After choosing an appropriate car, enter your personal data in the corresponding fields. If you
decided to buy deposit insurance, choose an appropriate option from the proposed list (note:
unfortunately, the insurance company that provides insurance services for our site doesn’t work in
some countries. It may turn out that you can’t buy deposit Insurance on our site). Then click
Enter the payment card details. At the payment stage, it doesn’t matter what type of card (debit or
credit) you use.

with a confirmation of your rental and a link to the voucher. Please follow the instructions on the
voucher (do not forget to print it and take it with you).
