Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:
It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.
You may take a car to Latvia and return it to another city without any problems. Just search for suitable offers by specifying the return city you need. The search results will show only offers from those companies that allow return in another city. The indicated price already includes a one-way tariff.
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.
However, when booking, you have the opportunity to include payable options, for example, GPS. You should pay for it later, directly to the rental company.
If the details of your trip have changed, and you do not need a booked car, there are no problems.
We will replace your booking free of charge, if you contact us at least 24 hours before the start of the rental time.
Cancellation less than 24 hours will cost you 50 EUR; the rest will be returned to your account.
Carefully read the cancellation policy for cars participating in deals and special offers; some of them may change their cancellation conditions.
