SPU Airport Car Hire – Late & Early Pickup, No Show
Late Pick-upWhen Flight Number is provided:
In case you have provided the correct flight number while making your car rental booking, the vehicle will be held until the flight has landed and cleared. There will be charges for late pick-up even if it was triggered by a delay in flight; however, since the supplier can track the flight via the flight number, they will keep the car ready.
In case your delayed flight is cleared after the rental desk’s working hours, a member of staff will wait for you, however in this case, you may also have to pay the off hours fee as well.When no Flight Number is provided:
In this case, the supplier's branch will hold the vehicle for a period of up to 1 hour after the pick-up time. In this case, the staff will not wait beyond the closing time.
For the renters who come for pick-up 1 day early (or earlier than that) at the rental desks with a car rental booking for Split Airport, they will not be able to use the reservation. Though the branch would try to help by offering an alternate booking, it should be noted that the rates will not be as low as the ones you encountered online.
Normally it has been observed that a pre-booked car hire is held for at least 3 hours from the specified pick-up time. After that, it is considered a no-show and the supplier cannot guarantee whether the vehicle will be available upon arrival or not. Even requests for a refund are not entertained in this case.
Split Airport Car Rental FAQs
What is cheaper – pre-booking my car rental or last minute booking on arriving?
Pre-booking your Split Airport car hire is a better option as in that case the rental charges will be considerably lower and the car variety at your disposal will also be wider. Our online prices are considerably lower – way lower than the prices that you will encounter at the car rental desk at the airport.
How far in advance can I book my SPU Airport car hire?
For last minute bookings, we advise you to contact our booking support at our helpline number for quick assistance as they will be able to help you find the right deal at the right price, in just a few minutes.
Do I need a credit card to book a car rental for SPU Airport?
No, with VIPCars you do not need a credit card to make an online booking, with us you just pay a small amount, for which you can also use debit cards etc. However, on the day of pick-up, it will be mandatory for you – as specified by many suppliers – to carry a credit card as you will need it to either pay the rental charges or to provide a security amount.
In case you don't have a credit card, you can get someone else to pay for you at the time of pick up; in that case, that person can be the main driver and you can sign as an additional driver.
Do I need to prepay for my booking?
You don't have to pre-pay the whole rental amount at the time of booking if you don't want to, you can confirm the booking by paying a small amount and the remaining amount can be paid at the rental desk via Bank transfer, cash or by credit card. In case you want to pre-pay the whole amount at the time of booking, you will need to contact us because the prepayment can only be made with our prior approval.
