Yes, under EU insurance rules a car insurance policy issued in one member state is valid for travel in all others. It's not possible to issue a vehicular insurance policy which is valid for Italy but not Slovenia or Croatia. If you plan to leave to EU (for example by going to Serbia or Montenegro) you may need to pay more for additional cover. See: ...

You can rent a car but you must check what the agency's policy is regarding international crossing. Sometimes it's minimal and they ask for an additional fee or sometimes a substantially higher insurance rate. The most steep fee though happens if you do not return the car in the same country of origin. Eurocar charged me 300 EUR last time for that. For a ...

Just a tip to all, don't hire a car in the UK if you're young and on a budget. The prices are fine for adults, but as soon as you sign a declaration stating you're under the age of 25, your premium, insurance costs, etc. go through the roof, you'll end up paying MORE for the insurance than for the original car/payment (including deposits and insurances).

One way car rentals tend to be limited to areas where there is regular demand for such rentals, and thus a good chance someone will return the car back to its original rental region. So you will see one way options within the continental US, but not Alaska to the continental US, as the number of folks wanting to do a one way car rental is extremely small. ...

We've had this problem for a number of years as we have relatives that live along gravel roads in various parts of Alberta. Having looked at all the local rental companies there are basically two variations of the rental contract depending on the company. The majority of the companies stipulate that the vehicle can only be driven on paved roads, which means ...

I did a multi-site search on Kayak, Hotwire, Priceline, CarRentals.com, rentalcars.com, Expedia for a ttrip between Anchorage and Seattle. All search results returned empty. Looking at smaller car rental companies in Alaska also failed to find any cars offered for driving to Seattle. It's not particularly surprising considering someone will have to drive ...

Having done this a number of times myself (and being an Australian living abroad), it will be difficult to find an easy single policy that will provide 'unconditional' cover or excess cover. I can't comment specifically on the UK Amex cover, but I have this also (no UK version) and there are a number of 'fine print' conditions which can be interpreted a ...

I thought I'd update this with my experience. I rented through Elephant Rentacar in the end. For 11 days' hire in November (2015) I paid EUR161. For this I got a Mondeo-sized car (Chevrolet, I think) with aircon. I had to pay EUR 45 for a half-tank of fuel. Given an assumed 50-litre tank, this was a little over the rate at the time but not obscenely so and ...

Driving around Iceland is a VERY good idea. :) How many days should I spend in Reykjavik if I will stay in Iceland 3 weeks? Is it worth to stay there more than 2 days? Well... it depends. Yes, there's enough to do and see in Reykjavik to stay tehre for more than 2 days. However, if you came to Iceland because of the scenic landscape, then you won't ...
