Do I have to leave deposit for car rental company renting the car in Colombo?
On arrival by the local car rental company, you have to provide a credit card in your name. A security deposit will be blocked for the rental period. The deposit is usually the same amount as liability excess of Collision Damage Waiver. As soon as you return the car in the same condition as it was recollected the security deposit will be unblocked. In case that you cause some damage, you will be charged from your deposit. Please note that the amount of the deposit depends on the car category and the local rental car agency. The amount of deposit you will find in the terms and conditions of the particular car.
Are the cars non smoking or I can choose option for smokers?
All our cars are non-smoking and there is no possibility to choose a car where you can smoke in. Why? This rule is mainly settled up due to your safety and comfort. In many countries it is forbidden to smoke when driving and if the local police stop you can get a high fine. Hot ash from the cigarette can destroy the car seat or other parts of the car when falls on the upholstering. It also leaves a very unpleasant smell which is very difficult to remove and therefore forbidden. Other customers can refuse to take a car like this.
Is the insurance included in the rental price?
Please, note that usually full insurance will not be included in the rental rate. The type of insurance which is included in your rental rate depends on your residence country, the location where you are renting and on the local car rental supplier. We strongly recommend entering terms and conditions for the selected location and car rental agency and read them carefully in order to learn which type of insurance is included in the rental rate. You can also find an additional type of insurance which is offered by the local supplier. For some quotes we do offer a full comprehensive refund insurance you can purchase on our website. More information you will see online.
Why do you need my flight number?
When you make your reservation, we will always ask to provide the flight number. It is important for the local rental car supplier, so they can know when you will arrive. If they see that your flight is delayed they will normally keep the car until your arrival. It is also very important to leave the flight number on the reservation if you have an option MEET AND GREAT. What's that mean it means that rental car representative will wait for you in the arrival hall holding a poster with your name in order to lead you to the car. Your flight number most likely contains two letters and 4 numbers. If you are not coming in by flight, you can enter 0000 to be able to make the reservation online.
Can I travel with my pet?
Traveling with your pet is not allowed, unfortunately. This is a general rule for all car rental companies. This regulation is mainly provided in order to make your travel safe and keep our cars as clean as possible. Pets, as we know leave hackles on the upholstering which can be difficult to remove. In many countries, there are special law and safety procedures regarding travel with animals. Special cages or seatbelts that rental car companies do not provide are necessary to transport animals.
