    Can You Avoid Extra Surcharges on Your Next Geelong Vehicle Hire

    Do Some Other Companies Bill Hidden Car Hire Charges?You may be visiting several different websites to locate the best deal on your auto hire in Geelong. But not all quoted car rates are created equal. Some of the major car hire booking websites will leave out these mandatory charges in order to dupe you into booking your van, SUV or car with them. For over six decades we've conducted ourselves ethically, and we do not believe in burying fees to trick our clients. When you reserve your Geelong car with Auto Europe you can be certain that the displayed inclusive rate is the price you'll be responsible for.

    Our company makes every effort to provide an inclusive, no-strings-attached rate to our valued customers. If you're exhausted by the dubious pricing practices of today's car hire industry and want straightforward, easy-to-grasp rates - you aren't alone. To assist as you try to make sense of the taxes and fees commonly mandatory for different car hire situations, we've assembled this short overview. Read on and you'll learn about some of the standard surcharges and local taxes that confuse and frustrate travellers planning to book a vehicle in Geelong.

    Pick-Up Location Costs for Auto Hires in Geelong

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    Referred to on car hire contracts as Premium Location Surcharge, Parking Fees, Out of Hours Fees, or Late Return Fees, you should be aware that surcharges associated with your pick-up location are common in the industry. In essence this is a convenience fee charged by local operators. Companies have to pay for parking space on airport grounds, so travellers often pay a fee to account for this expence by the local agency. The amount of the fee can vary, but it's typically similar to the cost of hiring a taxi to a downtown location in Geelong where the location surcharge wouldn't apply. Pay special attention to the hours of the office where you'll pick-up and drop-off your car to avoid out of hours or late return fees.

    Various Driver Charges and Fees for Driving a Car Hire in Geelong

    $$$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    It may seem ridiculous to be charged a driver fee for a vehicle that you hire specifically to drive, but driver fees (often referenced as an Additional Driver Fee, Young Driver Surcharge, or Senior Driver Fee) apply an extra daily fee to the total cost of your car hire based on who will be driving the car. Many car hire companies charge a fee for drivers under the age of 25 or over the age of 65, and you can expect to pay extra if you plan to have more than one person driving your car hire in Geelong during your trip. These fees can be $5 all the way to $20 per day, depending upon the unique circumstances of your car hire.

    Hire-a-Car Petrol Policy Charges and Fees

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    Most car hire agreements in Geelong require you to fill your vehicle with fuel prior to dropping it off at the agency when your trip is over. These Full to Full policies can result in a fee, charged after the fact, if you do not fill your vehicle up with gas or diesel fuel prior to dropping it off at the end of your trip. Pay close attention to your car hire contract, as you can generally save a little money by filling your tank yourself instead of relying on the local agency to do it for you.

    Value Added Tax Associated with Car Hires in Geelong

    $$ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Sometimes Disclosed by Others

    If you see Value Added Tax or VAT tax on your car hire contract this refers to a European sales tax which varies slightly from one Geelong to the next. Typically the VAT tax rate will be 15-30% of your hire cost. To be sure that the price quoted includes this legally required tax look for Including VAT or similar language. If you see Plus VAT or Taxes Extra be aware that you will be required to pay more than the quoted price on your car hire in Geelong.

    Local Tax Charges for Your Geelong Car Hire

    $ Always Disclosed by Auto Europe Rarely Disclosed by Others

    There are many names for local car hire taxes, including Road Tax, Vehicle Licence Fee, Environmental Fee or Eco Surcharge, Credit Card Processing Fee, or Road Safety Fee. The cost of these mandatory charges is usually low ($1 - $5 per day), and they are required by law for drivers in many locations around the world. Many online car hire services do not disclose these hidden fees, so we make an effort to be up front and transparent about them so you know what you'll be paying for your car hire in Geelong before you depart on your trip.
