Cancellation policy in France

In France, in the framework of Covid 19, the ordinance dated March 25, 2020 allows travel service providers, including car rental companies, to offer credit notes to their customers requesting a cancellation between the 1st of March and the 15th of September 2020, of their upcoming car rental (does not apply to utility vehicles).
The credit-notes have a validity of 18 months. The information of the proposed credit note must be sent on a durable medium (postal mail or email) no later than 30 days after the termination of the contract.  
Within 3 months at the latest from the notification of the resolution, the customer will receive a new proposal of service equal to the amount of the credit-note. The customer is free to use the credit-note as they wish. 
If at the end of the validity of the credit, the customer hasn't used the credit-note, they will be fully reimbursed for the amount of this credit. This ordinance applies for all bookings made on French booking channels, and for all bookings with a pick up in France.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I travel into a designated red zone with one of your vehicles?

It is no longer permitted to travel outside the UK in a rental vehicle until further notice. In the rest of countries we are not implementing any travel restrictions for our vehicles. Customers should follow local authority guidance on travel restrictions.

Can I move through any country of the European Union / Switzerland with this vehicle?

We are not implementing any travel restrictions for our vehicles. Customers should follow local authority guidance or travel restrictions. Our standard policy & charges for one-way hires for drop off in different stations/countries applies.

Am I sure I won't be contaminated by renting one of your vehicles. Do you put in place a special preparation of the vehicles?

All our vehicles are cleaned before hire and we have implemented additional cleaning measures including sanitising surfaces within the vehicle.

What will happen to my car rental if I suspect I have been infected or have been confirmed as infected with COVID-19 and need to quarantine while I am renting with you?

We're here to support you. During your car rental period, if you become infected or suspect you have been infected and need to quarantine and therefore cannot return your rented car, please inform us immediately. A 9 day-period must be respected for the car in order to minimize any risk of passing on the infection to other customers and therefore the vehicle will remain with you during this 9-day period, but you will not be charged for the rental from the day you contact us. Please do not touch the vehicle during this period. If you do not inform us of the reasons why the car has not been returned, we may have to charge you for additional days, which is clearly not our intention if you've been infected or quarantined.

Do you have any insurance that covers cancellations in case of force majeure or contingencies as confinement ?

The insurance has to be contracted by customers to cover their risks. However, due to the situation, we have implemented a new Safe & Flex policy. Europcar provides both flexible adjustment or cancellation free of charge for all of our customers. We have extended our free of charge modification and cancellation policy to your current or future reservation for any pick-up until 31st of May 2020.
