24 hour rule

A rental day is 24 hours

Car rental is always calculated over 24 hours. This means that the rental period starts when you receive the rental car. So if you reserve your rental car from 10:00 AM to 10:00 AM the next day (exactly, that’s 24 hours), you pay 1 day’s rent. But if you do not return the rental car until 12:00 the next day, the costs for a full rental day will be added.

Return rental car earlier. What happens to unused rental days?

Do you return the rental car before the end of your rental period and do you therefore have unused rental days or half days left? Then unfortunately these will not be reimbursed. Car rental is really per 24 hours. Do you rent the car from 9:00 AM and return it at 5:00 PM the same day? Then that is actually a shame. You can use the car until 9:00 AM the next morning!

So it’s actually very simple: make good use of the 24-hour rule! After all, you pay for it anyway. Then you might as well get the most out of it.
