Depending on the car hire company and where your hiring a car will determine what optional extras are available. For Example, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to hire a ski rack with a hire car at Heathrow Airport, however all car hire companies will provide them at Geneva Airport.
You can add optional extras at time of booking, or once you have booked. To add to an existing booking use the 'Manage Booking' facility and log into your booking (you will need your e-mail address and booking confirmation number). From here click 'Add extras' and select the optional extras you require.
General car hire optional extras:
Location specific car hire optional extras:
- Additional driver
- Child seats
- Ski rack
- Snow chains
- Winter tyres
All available optional extras will be displayed at the ‘Options
’ stage of the booking process.
It’s important to consider the total rental cost (car + extras) when deciding which car / agent is best for you as the total cost of a more expensive car may be less than the cost of a cheaper car plus the options.
It’s also worth looking out for free optional extras included within the car hire price as if you need the optional extra this would likely represent good value.
