Where can I pick up and return the rental car?

You have several options from where you can pick up your rental car, depending on how you arrive in Tokyo. One option would be, to collect the car directly after landing and start off your stay with your rental car. With this option, you have the advantage of saving money for public transport and you won't have to carry your luggage around.

The other option would be to collect the car in the city centre of Toyko. On you can inform yourself about the different rental car stations that are near your accommodation. In the list below, you will find some examples of rental station locations:

Which type of insurance should I take?

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the rental car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Tokyo.

This should be noted:

You have to pay close attention to the many pedestrians in Tokyo. Especially in the city centre, the traffic is very busy.

One-way rentals

What are "one-way rentals"? A one-way rental is an option that you can choose while booking your rental car. One-way rental means that you pick up your rental car at one station and return it at another. In other words, this means that the pick-up station, therefore, does not correspond to the drop-off station

On, you can inform yourself where rental stations are and where to return the rental car. Many car rental companies offer one-way rentals for a one-way fee.

In Tokyo, you can decide if you want to visit some more cities and destinations around Tokyo. For example, you can visit cities near Tokyo, such as Yokohama or Shizuoka.

Additional driver option

In addition to the main driver, who usually also booked the rental car, one or more additional drivers are also allowed to drive the rental car. Having an additional driver is a great option, especially for long journeys or longer tours with a rental car! So you can hand over the steering wheel and everybody has the opportunity to relax or just look out of the window and enjoy the scenery. If you don't book this option, only the person who booked the car is insured in case of an accident.
