Goldcar France Rental Terms for travel between 15-Jan-2019 and 31-Dec-2024
An initial, non-refundable deposit will be secured at the time of booking confirmation. Accepted credit cards are Visa and MasterCard.
The balance is payable directly to the supplier on arrival (along with any applicable vehicle security bond).
Our agents will receive daily or weekly rates and these prices are subject to future modifications.
If weekly rates are received, it is still possible to hire a car for a shorter rental period than one week, although the minimum rental is 3 days. This means that although it is possible to make a reservation for a period of less than 3 days (1 or 2 days), the cost for 1, 2 or 3 days is the same.
The price of 6 and 7 days is the weekly net rate price.
When the rental period is for less than a week, we calculate the price of one week and divide among 6.
6 Goldcar rental
Then multiply the result by 4 or 5 days. If the lease is for more than a week, we estimate the cost of a week and divide it by 7. Then multiply the result by 8, 9 days...
We accept credit cards to pay the costs of cars rental, fuel and other local extras. The main driver of the car rental contract must be the cardholder of one of the following valid credit cards: MasterCard and VISA.

Please, take into account that due to the foreign exchange rate and other possible banking charges not related to Goldcar, the customer will have to take responsibility for the possible expenses involved when we charge/refund the aforementioned deposit/Excess.
It is essential that after the rental period, the customer goes to our office to return the vehicle and asks for the refund of the deposit/Excess (if the car is returned in good condition, the vehicle has not been involved in any accident/breakdown…etc.). Please, take into account that it is not possible to make any refund on a debit card if we do not physically have the card.
It is possible to pay with one card (rental + fuel + extras) and leave the Deposit/Excess with a different card (both cards must be in the name of the main driver on the rental agreement).
We do not accept payment by prepaid cards, American Express, Postepay, Gift cards or Diners.
Nor will accept payment in cash.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE RATE

(Please see the section Extensions of the Rental Period for more information).
The following documents are necessary to be able to rent a vehicle: Passport or Identification card, international driving license written in Roman letters and a valid credit/debit card.
OPTION 1 (by default):
Flex Fuel SDR/QRS: The Quick Return System, (SDR in Spanish,) associated with this reservation is an agile system for returning the vehicle: it allows the customer to avoid unnecessary delays while returning the vehicle, last minute searches for service stations, or extra charges and penalties for refuelling errors. For this reason, the Quick Return System includes a full tank of fuel that doesn’t need to be returned full, it does away with the need for a check-in process to prove that the vehicle is topped up at the time it is returned, and it allows for flexibility in the return time. The cost of the Quick Return System must be paid on collection of the vehicle. It is determined based on the model of the hired vehicle and its fuel capacity, the price of fuel at collection and operational and logistical expenses. The Quick Return System includes the compensation for remaining fuel on return of the vehicle according to the eights marked by the fuel gauge, excluding from that compensation the amount related to operational and logistical costs.
IMPORTANT: the special current fuel policy for 3 days or less will disappear. Please, bear in mind that we will process a refund for the remaining fuel on return of the vehicle but excluding the amount related to operational and logistical costs.
The price of the Quick Return System can be found at this web address: www.goldcar.es/sdr. It is necessary that you provide the customers with this link (on your Website, your vouchers…etc.) so that there is transparency with the fuel prices.
As you are aware, one of the most important issues is the transparency of the prices with no hidden costs. According to legal experts in consumers rights consulted this new system complies completely with European legislation.
We calculate the price of the SDR according to the following calculation:
SDR = Vehicle Model (in liters) x Price(€/liter) + OLC
Vehicle Model (in liters): the capacity in liters of the fuel tank based on the model the customer receives
Price (€/liter): the calculation of the unit Price of the fuel, taking as reference the average Price of the petrol stations in the Alicante Province (rentals with origin in Mainland & Baleares) and Gran Canaria (for rentals with origin in any of our offices in the Canaries) according to the rates published in the Web of Industry, Energy and Tourism Ministry: Spain http://geoportalgasolineras.es/ , Italy (https://carburanti.sviluppoeconomico.gov.it/OssPrezzi/ricerca) and Portugal (http://www.maisgasolina.com). The value used is the result of the average of the cheapest and the most expensive price available on the date consulted.
OLC: The necessary operational and logistical costs, the cost is associated to the concrete model of the vehicle provided
We consider this new system to be very beneficial for the customers and both our companies as the customers´ satisfaction will be increased positively.
Please, take into account that this issue will be a huge advantage compared to the current Goldcar fuel system.
Furthermore, we are sure we will reduce the amount of claims related to the current policy as well.
We suggest that you explain in your Website our new system in a different way highlighting the advantages the
customer will have.
The main advantages for the SDR/QRS are as follows:
- The vehicle is provided with a full tank
- It is not necessary to refill the tank before returning the vehicle
- Avoid unnecessary delays while returning the vehicle:
a. A check-in process is not necessary to prove the vehicle is topped up at the time it is returned
b. it is not necessary to look for a petrol station to refill the vehicle near to the drop off location
-Avoid refueling errors and the consequent costs as this is considered negligence
-Flexibility in the rental (in the offices where it is possible, the vehicle can be returned although the office is
-Save money (the unused fuel is refunded)
-Comfort thanks to the automatic refund of fuel when the contract is finished
OPTION 2 (we need to know if you are interested in this option):
Full Fuel SDC/CRS: The Classic Return System, (SDC in Spanish and associated with a higher rate): this option includes a full tank of fuel and must be paid on collection of the vehicle. The price of fuel is determined based on
the price of the petrol stations. This option implies that the customer has to return the vehicle full of fuel (all rental durations). It will be necessary that the customers show the petrol station receipt on return confirming they have refilled the tank. If the vehicle is not returned with a full tank, the refund of the amount paid will have a deduction equal to the value of the missing liters of fuel (according to the current petrol station prices) plus a penalization of 50€.
If you want to offer both the Flex Fuel as the Full option, you will have to define the Fuel option within the reservation.
OPTION 3 (ONLY AVAILABLE UPON COLLECTION, NOT BOOKABLE IN ADVANCE):
• What is the Prepaid Tank?
1. Customers pay for a full tank upon collection (the Logistical & Operational Costs are NOT added up to the fuel price; the Location Costs are added up to the fuel price*).
2. Customers can use all the fuel they need as they do not have to return the car with fuel.
3. We will not refund unused fuel.
We remind you that the Location Costs are applied to reservations for any Spanish on-airport offices.
• How the Prepaid Tank works?
1. Customers who have reserved the Full Fuel system (Goldcar or Rhodium) can take the Prepaid Tank (not available for Flex Fuel bookings).
2. The bookings can be made through the system defining the fuel System: Full Fuel. Customers will be offered this additional option upon collection as this cannot be reserved in advance.
3. If customers are not interested in the Prepaid Tank, the Full Fuel system originally reserved will be maintained.
• What are the main advantages of the Prepaid Tank?
1. The Logistical & Operational Costs are NOT added up to the fuel price (you can check the fuel price on our Website https://www.goldcar.es/en/sdr/).
2. Customers do not have to worry about refueling the tank at the end of the rental, they do not have to look for a petrol station…etc.
3. As the car does not have to be returned full, we will not charge the fuel missing liters/penalization of 50€.
