Car rental guide – how to do it?


There’s nothing like traveling on your own! We are not limited by the time, group or guide, who guards the trip plan. A rented car is the best possible way to travel right after leaving the plane (especially when we travel out of season or to places that are hard to reach).
Flexibility and freedom – these are the main features of traveling by rented car.

We introduce the best car rental search engine. Our partner has over 221 companies from 167 countries! 2 million drivers giving rates cannot be wrong!


As always on ‘checktheairport’ short and to the point – car rental guide

On each among more than 727 airports in the ‘car rental’ section you will find a simple car rental search (or under the LINK). Enter there a pick up and drop off location (unless they are the same), the date and time of collection and return of a car. If you are under 25 or above 70 years old you need to deselect the box under the pick up date and enter the age of the driver yourself. In most companies the minimum age for a driver is 21 years. Additional fees may be charged by certain suppliers in certain countries for drivers who are under 25 and above 65 years old. If the correct age of the driver was entered at the time of searching for the car, you will be informed of additional charges due to that reason.
