Cancelling a booking after payment

More than 24 hours before start rental period: amount paid - €10 cancellation fee

Processing failed extension*

€10 administration fee + costs of the extra rental period

If you want to cancel a booking to edit the booking make sure the car owners cancels and you request a new, correct booking. If you cancel the bookings yourself the above mentioned cancellation fees automatically apply. This is a process that we cannot undo.

If you think these cancellation fees do not apply to your specific situation do not cancel the booking and contact our Community team via citing the booking number. If you do cancel the booking beforehand we cannot undo the cancellation fees.

A traffic fine will first be offered by the car owner and he/she will ask you to transfer the amount to their bank account so they can pay the fine. If the car owner does not receive the money or cannot properly reach you we will take care of the traffic fine and the above mentioned costs apply.


The above mentioned fines and fees will be deducted from your bank account automatically, you’ve given us permission to do so when you accepted our general Terms & Conditions. In case of Extensions, Traffic fines, Deductible and/or Cleaning costs you will receive an invoice with an overview of the costs.
