Additional fees and taxes

When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.

During the booking process, you will be offered to choose equipment that is not included in the standard package, for example, sports equipment storage. You will know the price immediately, but you should pay for it to the rental company upon receipt of a car.

Be careful on the road. Fines in Austria are quite high.

The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to Austria, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in Austria. 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.

Conditions for crossing borders with neighbouring countries

In most cases, you may safely cross borders of neighbouring countries in a rented car. But exceptions are also not uncommon; consult the Border Crossing section.

Travel restrictions

Available payment options

MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express cards are accepted for booking payments.
PLEASE NOTE that some rental points accept credit cards only. In order not to find out about this at the time when you receive the car, carefully read the Payment Methods section before travelling.

Deposit and credit card information

If such a requirement does exist, and you are the holder of a debit card, it is not a problem. Many banks issue debit cards, which are listed as credit cards in the system and have zero limit. Check your card type on www.bindb.com by entering the first 6 digits.

Age. Restrictions and extra charges

Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. Visit the Age Restrictions section to find out how a driver of your age group is charged when booking.

Austria. Special offer for car rental

Before choosing a car and booking, check the list of special offers and deals on the cars-scanner website. They may help you save a significant amount. In addition, early booking will help you optimise costs; many rental companies give additional discounts to those who book the rental 2-6 months before the trip.

Our customers may use current discounts and special offers. We constantly conduct joint deals with many rental companies in Vienna. You can get the best conditions when booking a car in advance (2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods, and 3-6 months before the high season). Discounts in such cases may reach up to 80%. In some cases, it is possible to rent a car at a super price of £ 1 per day.


Get insured and enjoy tour travel

To travel calmly and to not to think about possible damage to the car, take out a full insurance policy; in this case, any difficulties with the car cease to be your concern and fall on the shoulders of an insurance company.

Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises.  Example:

On the advice of my friend, I reserved a car via this site before the trip. At the airport of Milan, we were waited by a representative of the company, who gave the keys to my sports car. My husband was glad to feel like a millionaire instead of traveling by bus. The price of that luxurious car wasn't very expensive.

We traveled very often, but because of the price increase we began to save money. Recently we tried to travel by a rented car on the advice of our good friends. It turned out to be more interesting and cheap. We saw many wonderful places. We looked for a car on this site and were worried that we managed to do it. Upon the arrival we got a rented car without any problems. We turned it also without difficulties. We are satisfied.
