After hours supplement: A one-time fee of 20,00€ will be charged for car deliveries between 20:00h and 08:00am. The payment of this supplement must be in cash due the fact that this supplement is kept by the employee. The payment is made at the time of the vehicle pick-up.

The price includes:  - VAT, Insurance (CDW) and unlimited mileage. All other features will be considered as an extra or suplement.

Included Insurance ( CDW ):  - Covers journey assistance, including substitution of the vehicle when necessary. - Covers all passengers, including medical assistance. - Covers all damages to be paid to third parties. - Covers damages to the vehicle but with a fixed excess as follows :
750,00 € for Groups A, B, C.

To cover the excess a Visa/Credit card or a cash deposit of the value mentioned previously is required on vehicle pick-up.

Avaiable Zero Excess Insurance ( Super CDW )  - Coverage : The Super CDW functions like the CDW but there is no excess to be paid by the client, so no deposit is required on vehicle pick-up.
The Super CDW is available at the following daily rates :
7,00 € a day for Groups A, B, C.
9,00€ a day for Groups C1, D, E.
10,00 € a day for Groups F, G.
This Zero Excess Insurance does not cover tyres, locks and windows.

Highway Tolls The use of A22 must be paid.
Therefore: When using the highway, the gateways will automatically register the vehicle in the system.
The tolls have different prices and each Km will be priced at about 9 cents (Example: From Vila Real de Santo António to Lagos the cost is 11,60€).
Our company will be notified and required by law to provide identification of the user / driver of that vehicle. The customer will be notified at the address provided to make payment for using the A22 highway. Regarding this point, if the customer doesn't want to be notified, the solution outlined below will be the quickest, most convenient and the least expensive:
After 48 hours ofusing the highway, the customer is able to make the toll payment on certain payshops or at any post office in Portugal. After those 48 hours the customer will have a five day period to do make the payment. If after those five days the customer fails to make the payment the customer will receive a notification at the address provided in the rental contract to pay the tolls. The easiest solution is to use the national road, the N125 that does not have tolls.

Airport Parking:  - No courtesy bus needed.

Safety baby seats:  Must be requested in advance. The cost of the safety baby seats is 3€ per day to a maximum of 45€.

Additional driver:  - Free of charge for online car hire bookings. For more additional drivers, a cost of 12,50€ will be charged per driver added to the contract.

Exiting Portugal: For assistance abroad you must pay a supplement of 35€ (Drive into Spain Extra) and travel as far as Seville. If you didn't choose this extra you can't cross the border and may be penalized.

GPS Equipment If you need a GPS it must be requested in advance (in the booking), and it has a cost of 5€ per day up to a maximum of 50€.

Airport Tax: Currently there is an airport tax of 20€ on the final price of every booking.
