Here you can find a free phone number and information on companies that provide rental services (Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, etc.). The rental conditions in these companies can differ, upon your reservation it is recommended to read the information about additional fees and taxes. Prior reservation and car selection is possible through international Internet services, such as: Orange Smile, Rental Cars 24h, Economy Bookings, Airport rental cars, etc. The prior reservation provides you a guarantee that a car will be ready at your preferred time and, in some cases, reduces the cost of rent by 20-30%.
