Car Hire Winter Equipment

An offer of some Europcar countries (*):
If skiing is on your agenda and you need a ski rack with your car hire, we can take care of it. With a ski rack there’s no need to worry about the size of car you hire or if your skis will fit. Our winter equipment extra means you can transport your winter sports gear safely and securely.
The winter equipment package allows more room inside your hire car for you and your passengers and is the convenient way to carry your skis.

Car Hire Fuel Options

In some countries, especially at large international airports, it can be quite a challenge to find a gas station near the return station to drop off the vehicle with a full tank.
Why not take the worry of this away and choose our full tank option? With this option, you simply pay for the tank filling in advance and return the vehicle at the end of the rental period with no need to fill the tank.

Car Hire Explorers

With the car hire Explorers package you can:
  • rent a GPS to ensure you don´t have to rely on your smartphone, never get lost and always arrive at your destination on time
  • add an additional driver so you can share the driving and arrive feeling refreshed
Explorers gives you flexibility with your car hire.

Car Hire Young Driver

Young drivers who are under 26 years old often have difficulties renting a car. However, this is not a problem with Europcar!
Please note the conditions of the respective country of your car rental. For a small surcharge, you can add the young driver option in the booking process and rent a car with Europcar.

Car Hire Families

Taking your own child seats on holiday can be inconvenient and expensive. In addition, there are different regulations regarding child seats in each country. In Austria, according to the legislator, children up to a height of 150 cm must be secured with suitable child seats.
We offer a range of child seats to hire with your car so you’ve one less thing to think about. Hire a child’s car seat that conforms to the highest safety standards and all you need to worry about is the rest of the baggage that comes with taking children on a road trip!
