As a general rule, it is necessary to have a valid driving license for at least 1 year and a minimum of 25 years of age. There is, however, a limited possibility - eg it depends on the car group - to reduce the indicated age (note: in vehicles over the minimum age you can go to 30 years and the driving license must be valid for more than 3 years).

A credit card is also usually required to provide a security deposit (guarantee on possible damages). It is an amount that is returned after the rental operation and everything is fine (there is no damage, there is no loss of documents, there is no lack of accessories on the vehicle, ...).

For payment of the rental car, you can use a debit card (or cash).

For the provision of the deposit it is usually necessary to be made by credit card. If the customer does not have one, his companion with a credit card present at the SADORENT counter (must sign documentation) may be responsible for the deposit. There is also the possibility that, through an additional extra or Max Relax rate, you can provide the deposit via debit card.

My credit card doesn't have enough ceiling for the high-end car I want to rent - how do I do it?

If you have other credit cards, you can accumulate your use until the amount of the deposit is completed. Third parties in your relationship present when picking up the vehicle will also be able to help you using your credit cards. There is the possibility, for an additional extra, to decrease the amount of the deposit.
