Guaranteed reservation Policy
The Drive&Go rental location (pick up station) is required to provide, within a given "guaranteed period" as defined below, the requested vehicle category as confirmed at the time of booking, subject to the renter meeting rental requirements.
If the vehicle category cannot be provided during this "guaranteed period", alternative solutions will be proposed at no additional cost to you, within one hour of arrival.

No Credit Card Details Provided - One Hour Guarantee:
If at the time of booking you did not specify your debit, credit or charge card details, Drive&Go is committed to guarantee your reservation for one (1) hour after the due pick up time.
Drive&Go will endeavor to provide the requested car category after the one hour guarantee period and until the reservation is listed as a "no-show" (at the closing time of the rental pick up station). If this is not possible, an alternative will be presented to you and, if you agree, another car category will be proposed and charged (new rates may apply), subject to you meeting the rental requirements.
