Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the price?

Your Átak car rental quote takes into account all mandatory charges corresponding to your reservation criteria. This quote generally includes the following items:

  • 24% Local VAT
  • Unlimited mileage/km
  • Airport surcharge if applicapable
  • One-way charge  if applicapable
  • PAI (Personal Accident Insurance)
  • Third party liability insurance
  • Collision Damage Waiver (“CDW”)

The CDW excess amount displayed at time of reservation indicates the maximum amount of money you are liable for, in the event of damage to or theft of the vehicle. This excess amount may be lowered by purchasing optional Super Collision Damage Waiver (“SCDW”) at time of reservation or during pick-up.


I don't own a credit card

We require a credit card when you pick up the car to guarantee the rental agreement. The person that pays for the car must own the credit card that is used to guarantee the rental agreement. If this is not the same person as the driver, we will list the driver as an extra driver.

If you only have a debit card, we accept debit cards that have the 16 digit number on the front if you also buy our Platinum Insurance package for the duration of your rental period.


I don’t want any unpleasant surprises at check out - are there any compulsory additional taxes or surcharges

The rates are guaranteed for the rental associated to the confirmed booking. Only specific compulsory charges such as Airport, Ecological surcharges (when excluded from the product) and country governmental taxes may vary until the renting period.

Excesses will vary, depending on the vehicle category. Our staff, either in the Reservations Department or at the counter, will be happy to inform you about the excess corresponding to the vehicle category you wish to rent. If new damage is noted when the vehicle is returned, you will be charged the corresponding amount and should the final repair cost (including any applicable administration or immobeilisation charges) be lower than the excess charged, the difference will be reimbursed. If we are able to recover the costs of its damage from a liable Third Party, you will be reimbursed in full.
