Very few people like to travel around the country alone in a rental car during their holiday. A road trip is much more fun if you can share the experiences with friends or family. For this reason we offer the option of an additional driver. If you are tired of driving or just want to enjoy the scenery, then simply hand over the steering wheel to your companion. All you have to do is book an extra driver for the rental car. When picking up the rental car, the driver only has to show his ID and driving licence and the road trip can start.
A road trip is much more fun with friends
Benefit from the additional driver option
One-way rental means you don't have to return the car to the starting point at the end of your trip. This option is particularly advantageous if you are planning a road trip. Collect the car from the car rental company of your choice and simply return it to another location at the end of your trip. So you can choose your route individually and be flexible.
Have you ever wondered what the costs will be if you have a claim with your rental car? The answer is quite simple: If you have taken out a fully comprehensive insurance without excess, you will not have to pay any further costs. You will have to advance the costs in the event of a claim, but will be reimbursed by your insurance company on your return. Simply keep the relevant receipts in a safe place for this purpose. With the right insurance, you can enjoy your holiday in Istanbul completely stress-free.
