Driver Requirements

When collecting the vehicle, the lead driver must present the following:

  • Valid driver's license (If your license contains any non-Latin characters, an International Driver's Permit is also required).
  • Passport or National Identity Card
  • Credit card in the lead driver's name
  • Booking confirmation email (you may show this on your phone)

Security Deposit

When collecting your vehicle you will be required to leave a security deposit on your payment card. With most car rental companies, the deposit will be of equal value to your excess - €1181 EUR (approx. £1062).

Note – Releasing your deposit

If you have activated the Via Verde toll device on your car, be aware that the "hold" on your credit card will not be cancelled until a few days after you have returned your vehicle. This is to give Guurin enough time to process any toll charges you may have incurred.

Fuel Policy

All Guerin vehicles are supplied on a "Full to Full" fuel policy which means the vehicle will be given with a full tank of fuel and should be returned full to avoid additonal charges.

Mileage Policy

All Guerin vehicles come with unlimited mileage.

Fees and Taxes

Local fees and taxes are included in this price.

Guerin charge a €24.60 administration fee for the processing of any fines or a €61.50 fee for following any damages.

Vehicle Collection

Directions

In Terminal: The collection desk is located within the airport terminal building. Follow the signs after passport control and baggage collection

Driver's License

When collecting the car, the lead and any additional drivers must present their full, valid driver's license. Photocopies are not accepted.

Each driver must have had their license for at least 1 year. For this class of vehicle, all driver's must be at least 25 years of age.

If your driver's license contains characters which are not in the Roman Alphabet, you will also require an International Driver's License.

Credit/Debit Card

You must present a valid credit card in the lead driver's name when you collect the vehicle. All major credit card types are accepted (including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Diner's Club). Only one credit card may be used per rental. Check that the card will not expire within 30 days of your collection date.

Debit cards and cash may only be used to pay the final bill when the vehicle is returned.

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

Guerin allow travel outside Portugal to all countries in the European Community (and Switzerland) but you must purchase the Cross Border product at the collection desk. The cost for this is €73.80 per rental. You may not travel to any Eastern European country apart from Slovenia and Slovakia and travel by ferry is also not allowed.

Late Collection

We recommend that you always contact your collection office if you will be arriving late, especially if you will be more than 30 minutes late or arriving after closing time. For delayed flights where you have prvided the flight number, Guerin will hold you car for you but will not stay open for more than 1 hour after normal closing time.. If a branch does agree to remain open after normal closing time for you, you wil be charged an extra €44.60 Out Of Hours fee.

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.

Guerin's breakdown cover protects you 24x7 in case of break down or accident. This service provides breakdown service or towing of the rented vehicle and or transportation of the passengers to the nearest Guerin rental service centre.

Exclusions

Even if you choose to included Guerin's extra cover (known as "Super CDW"), you are not covered for acts of vandalism or damage to the roof & underside of vehicle (unless in a collision). Cover is also void when damage caused through misuse or failure to comply with the road code.

Unless you choose to upgrade to Guerin's "Super CDW" cover you will also not be covered for damage to wheels & tyres. Glass is only covered if you also purchase the "Additional CDW" product at the collection desk.

The standard theft protection covers the vehicle and any of its components but is only valid if you report the theft to the local authorities and you still have the vehicle's keys.

Insurance Excess

This vehicle comes with basic cover for theft or damage to the vehicle. Should there be any damage or theft of the vehicle you will be liable for up to €1181 (inclusive of taxes).

If you would like to reduce the risk of any large payouts, you can select a vehicle that includes Guerins premium cover product (which they call "Super CDW") to reduce your excess to zero.

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

Depending on the supplier, you will typically have two choices when it comes to paying for fuel.

  • Full to Full: This is usually the most cost effective option. The vehicle will be fuill when you collect and you must fill it up again just prior to return. If you select this policy and do not re-fill the vehicle, the supplier will charge you for the fuel you have used at a price that is often higher than would be charged at a local service station.
  • Pre-paid: This is the most convenient option. You pre-pay your tank of fuel (including a service charge) which means you collect the vehicle full and can return it empty at no extra charge. Note that you will not be refunded for fuel you do not use. Some suppliers give us the "pre-paid" rate where we include this in your price but usually we offer "Full to Full" and you would ask to pre-pay your tank at the collection desk.
XXX Your fuel policy options will be explained at the collection desk.

Additional Drivers

There is no need to pre-book additional drivers as they can be added at the collection desk. Each additional driver will need to show their Driver's License and Passport.

The cost per additional driver is €5 per day except for young drivers (less than 21) who would pay €7.70pd. In either case you only pay a maximum of 10 days charge (€50 / €77).

Other Extras

When driving in Portugal, children under 12 years of age and less than 135 cm in height must use an approved child seat which must be secured in the back seat of the vehicle unless the child is less than 3 years old. Guerin provide both Infant, Child and Booster seats and recommend that they be included in your reservation to ensure availability.

"Via Verde": Toll roads are common on Portuguese highways, many do not have payment booths and the means of payment are problematic for tourists. We recommend that you ask at the collection desk for the "Via Verde" device to be activated which will allow you to pass straight through the tolls and your credit card will be billed automatically. This will cost you less than €2 per day (max charge of €18.50).

GPS and Mobile Data (wifi) systems are only available from selected airport locations and should be requested in advance to ensure availability.

At the collection desk you may also be offered a "Pack Hours" extra which basically gives you an extra hour's breathing room at the end of your rental for late returns.

Changes to length of rental

If you are late to collect your car, Guerin will hold you car for you for X hour after which your bookng may be cancelled. You can avoid this by contacting them or, for airports, by providing a valid flight number.

Any collections or returns outside normal opening hours will incur an extra charge of €44.60.

On returning the vehicle you will have 59 minutes grace period for late returns before you will be charged for a whole, additional day's rental at higher than normal rate. You can purchase a "Pack Hours" extra at the collection desk to extend this by an hour. Vehicles may be returned early - there is no extra charge for this but nor will you be refunded for any unused days.

If you wish to extend your rental after you have collected the vehicle, you will have to return to a Guerin office to sign a new rental agreement.

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

Hire car jargon explained

Excess reimbursement insurance

Purchasing excess cover means you'll be refunded for any of the excess you have to pay to the car rental company .

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

Third party liability cover

Third party liability insurance insures in case you cause an incident. If you do, it might injure or kill others (such as your passengers, pedestrians or people in other vehicles), or damage property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). As legally they need to be covered, you could be responsible any claim, or treating any injuries or financially covering their loss of earnings, as well as any legal costs and any court costs.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, which means you would need to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £750 to £1,500, varying dependent on the car, the deal and the country). If you choose to cover your excess , you will be reimbursed for all of the excess you have to pay. Or if you take out Premium Cover, the excess amount is often reduced to zero.

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

The rentals on our site include a full to fuel fuel policy.

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

You will see full to empty fuel policies on other sites that seem to be better deals. Always check the small print for full to empty rentals as the refuelling and admin charges associated with full to empty fuel policies always make it much more expensive than full to full .

Theft liability insurance (theft protection)

Theft liability insures the amount due if the hire car is stolen. It is subject to an excess amount, which means you'll need to pay the first part of an insurance claim (normally between £700 to £2,500, depending on the car, the country and the deal.

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

Additional driver charges

A car hire agreement is between the car hire company and the one individual who signs the contract and will be the main driver. This requires that you have to ask for any other drivers to be added, and this usually means an additional cost ( can be up to £10a day ). However, there are occasional special offers that include extra drivers are free. Always be cautious of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being told the cost.

Collision damage waiver (CDW)

It insures the car for damage in a similar way the insurance you have on your personal vehicle does. It includes an excess amount which you can choose to insure separately (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Stress Free Car Rental also list cars that include CDW with no excess amount

Rental car excess

For rentals outside of the US and Canada there is usually an insurance excess to pay* - this is similar to the excess on domestic car insurance in the UK. The excess on rental cars is very high. It's normally between £1,200 to £2,500. If you decide not to insure the insurance excess amount you will be liable to pay for damage to the car up to the excess . Check out our Premium Cover car hire options if you'd prefer not to have a large amount held on your card when you pick up the car.

Hiring a car with Guerin including One Way Fees;

Many of the car rental brands we include permit you to pick up the vehicle in one location and return the vehicle at a different location.

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

The excess is the amount you would be liable to pay if the car is stolen, written off or severely damaged. The excess on hire cars can be expensive. It's normally between £800 to £2,000, depending on the car, the country and the deal. If the car is returned damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the car, the insurance excess is held on your card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. This means that the money isn't charged to your card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you drop off the car. You won't usually have to pay foreign currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions. As long as the vehicle is returned in the same condition as when you collected it, the excess amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything further to pay.

If you plan to pay by debit card, the excess amount will be taken from your bank account and refunded when the car is returned. If you plan to use a debit card on collection, as the excess amount can be high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover when you book or to buy top up cover at the rental desk.

If you'd like to hire a car with a £0 or reduced excess check out our Premium Cover options.
