Centauro Car Hire

Since business began in Benidorm in 1973, Centauro has grown to become one of the leading budget brands across Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece. Centauro have over 40,000 vehicles in their fleet and, perhaps surprisingly for a budget brand, all of these vehicles are replaced before they get to one year of age.

With most of their offices being located a short shuttle ride away from an airport, you will have to sacrifice a little bit more time in collecting and returning your vehicle but the reward will be a modern vehicle at a very low rate.

Vehicle Collection

Directions

Come out of the station taking the main exit and turn left. At the first street called ‘Calle Mendivil’ turn left where you will see the Centauro office. Vehicles must be returned to the Centauro car park. (Contact number 0034 966298020).

Centauro accept both credit and debit cards but they must be a Visa or Mastercard. It may take 4-7 days after returning the vehicle for the security deposit to appear in your account again.

Prepaid Cards, Maestro, American Express, Diners Club and cash are not accepted.

Check that the card will not expire prior to your return date.

Rental Agreement

Once your paperwork has been inspected, you will be asked to sign a Rental Agreement. This is a contract between you and the car hire company and contains the terms and conditions for your rental. The agreement may include some location-specific conditions as well as setting out the limitations of any cover you have and the extra costs you may be liable for. You will be given the keys once you and any additional drivers have signed the agreement but don't rush, once you've signed you are legally bound to the terms of that document.

Cross Border Rules

When hiring from Centauro in Spain, you may take the vehicle to Portugal, Andorra and France but only if you purchase the "Cross Border Roadside Assistance" product. This can be added at the collection desk and costs €9 per day (min charge €27, max charge €90). Vehicles may not be taken on a ferry.

If driving into Portugal, we advise that you purchase a temporary electronic toll tag at the border in order to simplify your driving through Portuguese toll roads.

Late Collection

If you will be late for collection, Centauro will attempt to honor the original booking for up to 12 hours after the booked collection time provided that you inform them of the delay. You can do this by contacting your Centauro collection office direct or, in case of a delayed flight, if you have provided a valid flight number as part of your booking.

You should always contact your collection branch if you expect to arrive beyond normal closing time to ensure that they can remain open for you. Any collections outside normal opening hours will incur a €40 out of hours charge regardless of the reason.

Insurance and Cover

Included in the price

This product includes Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) with Theft Protection and Third Party Liability Cover. This means that you are insured for damage to or theft of the vehicle and also against any third party claims.

Should there be a claim, you will be liable up to the value of the excess payment unless additional insurance is taken out. Centauro will replace your car in the event of an incident.

Exclusions

The mandatory colision and theft insurance included with any Centauro vehicle does not include any of the following:

  • Damage to a third party or to the hire vehicle due to negligence or inappropriate driving
  • Theft of the vehicle with keys left in the ignition
  • Loss/damage/theft of extras such as child seats or components of the vehicle like keys, jacks etc
  • Loss/Damage/Theft of personal belongings
  • Refuelling with the wrong type of fuel
  • Administration fees relating to accidents, parking or speeding fines
  • Punctures or any damage to the tyres or rims
  • Damage to glass or undercarriage
  • Damage as a result of forced entry
  • Any damage to the vehicle up to the excess amount

You may extend your cover and reduce your excess payments by taking out additional insurance with us or at the collection desk with Centauro.

Insurance Excess

This vehicle comes with basic cover for theft or damage to the vehicle.

Should there be any damage, you will be liable for up to €1050. For theft the limit of your liability is €1050. Both limits are inclusive of taxes. Be aware that often the same vehicle can be chosen with extra insurance included in the price which will reduce the excess to €0.

Please pay attention to the procedure for reporting an incident which will be explained in your rental agreement at the collection desk. Failing to follow this procedure could result in you being liable for the full value of the claim.

Additional Info

Fuel Options

All Centauro vehicles are supplied on a "Level to Level" basis - you should return the vehicle with the same level of fuel it had when you collected it or you will be charged for the missing fuel PLUS a refuelling service charge of €25.

Centauro may offer the option to pre-pay their tank of fuel. With this you do not have to re-fuel the vehicle prior to return and you will be refunded for any fuel that you have not used. You still pay the service charge of €25 however so there's no real advantage in choosing this option.

Additional Drivers

There is no need to pre-book additional drivers as they can be added at the collection desk. There can be a maximum of 3 additional drivers per booking. The cost is €7 per driver, per day with a minimum charge of €21 per driver up to a maximum of €84. This cost will be higher for young (21 - 24) or senior (75+) drivers.

(Also be aware that if you choose to include premium cover from Centaruo (SMART Cover) with your booking, you would get an additional driver included in the price).

Other Extras

When driving in Spain, any child who is under 12 years old or less than 135cm (4ft 5in) must use a child seat in the rear of the car. Centauro provide the following:

  • Baby seat - 0 to 13 kg
  • Infant seat - 9 to 25 kg
  • Child (booster) seat - 16 to 36 kg

GPS devices are usually available.

All extras are paid for at the collection desk.

Changes to length of rental

After collection, you may return the vehicle early but there will be no refund for the un-used portion of your booking

If you return the vehicle late, you will be charged for each additional day that it is late PLUS a €50 per day fee. Centauro do not offer a grace period for late returns so we recommend extending your return time slightly.

It is not possible to extend a rental

General Terms

Cancellations
It is free to cancel your booking at any time until 48 hours before collecting the vehicle. Once within 48 hours of collection, you will not be able to cancel your booking and any payments made cannot be refunded.

Amendments
If you wish to make changes to your booking, you will most likely be required to cancel and rebook. There is no cost for cancellations. If you only wish to change your flight or phone number, you can email our customer services team on help@stressfreecarrental.com.

Refunds after vehicle collection
The suppler may refuse collection of your vehicle for reasons such as not being fit to drive, missing required identification or not having the correc type of payment card in the lead driver's name with sufficient funds available. In the event of such a refusal, no payments made will be refunded.

The supplier does not offer credit or refunds for early returns of the vehicle.

In the event of "Delayed Charges" (fines, motorway tolls, failing to refuel, extra days, damages, loss and any associated admin charges), your Security Deposit may only be part-refunded.

Vehicle Types
Unless we indicate a "guaranteed model", vehicles are reserved by class of vehicle and not by make and model. The vehicles displayed are the commonly used models for our partners in your chosen country. If that particular vehicle is not available, the supplier will typically offer another vehicle of the same or higher class at no additional cost.

Disabled Passengers
If you are travelling with disabled passengers, be sure to forward your confirmation email to help@stressfreecarrental.com with any special requirements and we will forward these to the supplier for you. We can't offer any guarantees that they will be able to help but we're happy to try. If you're collecting from an airport, providing your flight number will help.

Disclaimer
The Rental Terms displayed on stressfreecarrental.com are a summary of the rental company's own terms and conditions. We take every care to present the important details from these legal documents in a way that is easier for our customers to understand but, in so doing, some of the finer details may have been omitted. The rental company's terms are also subject to change; all efforts are made to keep our information up to date but there will inevitably be a small delay before we can do so. The full terms and conditions will be supplied as part of your Rental Agreement that you will receive and must sign before your rental can begin. If any customer would like to read the full terms and conditions prior to collecting their vehicle, please contact our customer support team.

Hire car jargon

Insurance excess

Car hire excess
For rentals outside of the US and Canada there is almost always an insurance excess to pay* - just like on domestic car insurance in the UK. The excess on hire cars can be very high. It's usually between £1,100 to £3,000. If you decide not to insure the insurance excess amount you could be liable to pay for any damage up to the excess amount. Check out our Premium Cover hire car options if you'd prefer not to have the excess amount blocked on your credit card when you pick up the car.

Third party liability cover

Third party liability insurance provides protection in case you cause an accident. If you do, it might injure or kill other people (for instance your passengers, pedestrians or people in other vehicles), or damage their property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). As legally they need to be protected, you'd be responsible the cost of any damage, or treating any injuries or covering their loss of earnings, as well as any legal costs and any court fees.

Third party liability is usually subject to an excess, which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £850 to £3,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal). If you choose to insure the excess , you'll be refunded for any or all of the excess amount you have to pay. Or if you take out Premium Cover, your excess amount can be reduced .
Third party liability insurance

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)
The hire cars on the site always include a fair full to fuel fuel policy.

You'll be asked to pay a small deposit for fuel on a credit card when you collect the hire car. Ensure that you fill the rental up and return it full and there will be no additional fees for fuel.

You might find full to empty fuel policies on some other websites that seem to be cheaper deals. Always check the terms and conditions for full to empty rentals as usually the admin and refuelling charges included with full to empty fuel policies always make it more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

CDW (Collision damage waiver)

CDW insures the car for damage in a similar way the insurance you usually have on your personal vehicle does. It includes an excess which you can choose to cover separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). We also list car hire on the site that include CDW with a zero excess
CDW (Collision damage waiver)

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)
It covers the amount due if the hire car is stolen. Theft liability usually includes an excess , this means you'll be required to pay the first part of an insurance claim (usually between £800 to £1,500, depending on the car, the country and the deal.

If you choose to insure your excess with an excess reimbursement policy, however, you'll be reimbursed for any of of the excess amount you have to pay (See essential cover). With Premium Cover your excess amount is often reduced to zero.

Extra driver fees

Car rental contracts is between the hire car company and the one person that signs the contract and will be the main driver. This requires that you need to ask for other drivers to be added, this usually comes with a cost ( can be up to £13a day ). However, there are occasional promotions where extra drivers are free. Always be cautious of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the price.
Additional driver charges

Excess reimbursement insurance

Essential Cover
Choosing excess cover means you'll be refunded for any of the excess you have to pay to the car rental company when you drop off the car.

Excess insurance also tends to cover other potential costs, such as towing, cleaning or admin fees, or misfuelling costs.

Hiring a car with Centauro without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

Hiring a car with Centauro without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The excess is the amount you would be required to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess amount on hire cars can be very expensive. It's often between £850 to £2,100. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you pick up the car, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money is not taken from your credit card as a normal payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the vehicle. You won't usually have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, the amount will be fully refunded to your card without anything additional to pay.

If you plan to pay by debit card, the excess amount will be taken from your account and fully refunded when the car is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess is often very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover when you book or to pay for top up cover at the rental desk.

To view car hire options with a £0 or reduced insurance excess take a look at our Premium Cover rental options.

Centauro Car Hire without a credit card

You can pay for your car hire on our website using any credit or debit card, including Visa, Mastercard or American Express. We also compare car hire deals at 1000s of locations that accept a debit card on collection. You can quickly and easily find these by using the filters on the search results page or taking a look at our Premium Cover options on the extras page.

Hiring a Car with Centauro including Child Seats

You will also be offered the option to include them with your car rental when making a booking on our website. Child seats and booster seats are paid for in the local currency when you collect the rental. Although it's highly unusual for them to be unavailable, their availability is not guaranteed by most car rental companies

Centauro Car Hire with Cross Border Fees Included

Centauro Car Hire with Cross Border Fees Included

If you'd like to collect your rental and take it over the border , be sure to review the terms and conditions. Almost all car rental brands insist that you let them know when you collect the car; and usually charge additional fees to top up the insurance.
