Available payment options

You may pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express.

IMPORTANT. It often happens that at the moment of receiving the car receipt, you may be requested to provide your personal credit card. To find out in advance which card you need, carefully read the Payment Methods section in the document with rental terms.

Deposit and credit card information


You have read the terms and found out that the credit card is really needed, but you do not have it? Before you do anything, check the type of your current debit card on www.bindb.com. Some banks issue credit cards as debit cards with zero limit. If your card is one on them, you are very lucky. It is also suitable for booking.

Traffic violation fines

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:


It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.

Extra charge for car return in other city

You may take a car to Latvia and return it to another city without any problems. Just search for suitable offers by specifying the return city you need. The search results will show only offers from those companies that allow return in another city. The indicated price already includes a one-way tariff.

Do I have to pay additional local fees?

Planning your trip budget with cars-scanner is easy; when booking, you see the final price of renting a car. No additional fees are charged.

However, when booking, you have the opportunity to include payable options, for example, GPS. You should pay for it later, directly to the rental company.

Cancellation and modification of order without penalties within 24 hours

You may book a car in advance; and if your plans change, you will be free to cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the rental time. This is the standard contract condition.

In the case of cancellation within the next 24 hours, you will be charged a fee of 50 EUR.

Compensation for cancellation on the day of booking is not provided; in this case, you will be charged the full amount for the entire rental time.

To cancel the order, use the special form on the website.

I had an excellent rest with my friends. We went on an extreme tour in Azerbaijan. We rented offroaders and drove along mountain roads and paths. I recommend this resource, as it offers affordable options. Other search engines could not find anything suitable.

We have a tradition with friends to go to Oktoberfest. We always rent a car in a kars scanner, save a lot of time and money. Once did not even have time to refuel before leaving the car, so the company's representatives did not even say anything to us, they simply included gasoline into the cost of services. I recommend to everyone.

Our flight was delayed by about 5 hours and we had no way of contacting the company of our late arrival. Naturally we were a bit worried whether our booking would still be in place when we eventually arrive. It was. The paperwork was ready to go and we were in our rented car and on our way within 15 minutes of arrival. The quality of the car was much better than we expected as well. Very clean.
