Find the perfect rental car for your trip
We compare car rental deals from many companies so that you can choose which is best for your trip. Many other websites hide fees and extra costs from you. We include all mandatory fees, taxes, and extras in the quoted price so there won’t be any surprises when you arrive at the rental desk.

Why are our prices lower?
Since we negotiate prices for many rental cars at a time directly with the car rental companies, we are able to secure lower prices for our customers.
Firstly, you need a valid driver’s license. In most cases, you must have held it for at least one (1) year. You also need a credit (or debit, where accepted) card to pay with and leave a deposit and the Rental Voucher received when making a reservation.
When renting in a foreign country, you often need another form of identification, usually a passport.
This depends on where you would like to rent a car. Though you can rent a car at the age of 18 in many European countries and the states of New York and Michigan in the United States, in many locations you must be 21 to rent a car. You can conveniently check by entering your age before clicking Search now.
Note that most rental companies charge an additional Young Driver Fee for renters under the age of 25, though this age varies by company and location. If you enter your age before searching, we include this fee in the total allowing for the simplest comparison.
There are two things you should use to determine which company to rent from - reviews and the Rental Conditions.
We ask every customer to rate their rental experience after they drop off the car and show their ratings when you search for a car. If you want to be sure you get great service, look for the Excellent Car Rental Service badge which we award to the top three companies in each location with an average rating of 8 or higher.
You should also check the Rental Conditions to make sure the rental company you choose works best for your requirements.
Though just a few years ago it was impossible to rent a car without a credit card, things have changed quickly. Many companies, especially global companies such as Avis, Dollar, Hertz, ect., allow renters to both pay and leave a deposit with a debit card (though the card must be a Mastercard or Visa).
If you do not have a credit card, be sure to check the Payment Policy section of the Rental Conditions prior to booking to see if the company accepts debit cards.
When you reserve a car through DiscoverCars.com, you can make changes or cancel your reservation for free at any point prior to 48 hours before you are scheduled to pick up the car.

A full driver’s license is always required and in some locations, an International Driving Permit may be necessary. After searching for a car in your desired location and with your dates, you can check the provider’s Rental Conditions for more information. When using an International Driving Permit, you also need to carry your local driver's license. Neither a printed copy nor a mobile scan of the license will be accepted.
It depends on the product selected on our website. Currently, Discover Cars has three types of payment:
1) Full Prepayment: you will pay the entire cost of the car rental online. When picking up the car, you will only have to leave a security deposit and pay for any optional equipment (GPS, child seats, additional driver, etc.).
2) Partial Prepayment: At the time of booking, you will be required to pay part of the total cost plus the cost of Full Coverage, if purchased. At the car rental desk, you will pay the remaining balance and leave a security deposit.
3) Pay Later: At the time of booking, you will be required to pay only the cost of Full Coverage, if purchased. At the car rental desk, you will pay the full rental costs and leave a security deposit.
We list a price breakdown on your Voucher so you’ll always know the exact amount that must be paid at pick-up.
Most of our partners only accept credit cards. So, unfortunately, if you are trying to pay with a debit card, it is highly probable that your payment will be declined.
Your payment will also be declined if your credit card doesn’t have sufficient funds, has expired, doesn’t allow a deposit, has a daily limit or if other types of restrictions are in place.
Payment can only be made if the credit card is under the name of the main driver stated on the Voucher.
If your rental car gets damaged the first thing to do is to contact the car rental agency. If your rental has only basic insurance, you will have to cover the damages up to your deductible amount.
If you have purchased Full Coverage from Discover Cars, you will need to Contact Us and provide us with all the information about the accident. Once we receive the necessary documents, we’ll analyze the situation and then refund you for charges and costs related to the damage if warranted
If you have purchased any insurance with the car rental provider, you will need to contact the provider.
If you have your own insurance, you will need to contact your insurance company and follow their procedure for claims.
If you would like to update the details of your reservation, we recommend that you either contact our Customer Support team or, if there is at least 48 hours before the start of your rental, submit a modification request using the My Booking section.
You can update details such as the main driver’s name and surname, the rental dates, and the category of the car. You can also add extras or various insurance policies. We will evaluate your request, check if the requested changes are possible or available, update your booking, and inform you about the updates in a confirmation email.
If you would like to modify your booking after you have picked up the car, you will need to contact the car rental provider. You will find their phone number on your Voucher.
