Payment method

Pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, or an American Express card.
BE CAREFUL. When you receive a car, you may need a credit card, and you will not be able to use a debit card. You can find further information about details in advance in the Payment Methods section.

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.

Speed limits

All the rumours that travelling across Edinburgh by car are over exaggerated. Of course, there are difficulties with parking, but everything is solvable, moreover, the quality of the road surface is excellent. Plus there are minor traffic jams, and quite reasonable speed limits. Particularities:

Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.

Amount of fines for traffic violation

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:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Edinburgh. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

What documents will be required for car receipt?

We had a great trip to Poland. Most of the time we spent in small towns and farms. Everything was very nice and home-like. The car was rented in advance without a limited mileage. We got the required insurance package without overpaying via this site. We received a car in Warsaw without any problems.

We had an excellent trip to the Cote d'Azur. We visited small towns, which were calmer and cheaper. We traveled by a rented car. We booked a car and paid for rent via this resource. It's very convenient and inexpensive. We chose a mini-car, so we spent money on rental cost and fuel.

You can find a car even in small towns, that is rare for similar aggregators. It's helped us for many times!
