2024 / 2025 Flex Rates
Valid from 09 October 2023 to 31 March 2025

Flex Rates allows us to offer flexible pricing, which gives you the opportunity to secure the best possible rental rate. The Flex Rates are based on a very simple system of supply and demand. So when there are a large number of vehicles available for hire from a particular branch then the rental rate is lower.

This way you can benefit from the lower rates offered. Generally, this means that the earlier you book the cheaper the rate! There will also be great Standby Rates!

For all vehicles over 3.5 tonnes, you are required to hold a licence that allows you to drive a vehicle over 3.5 tonnes. Please check vehicle weight and your licence.

1) Obtain an international licence OR
2) Send us a copy of your drivers licence in advance, by scan, so it can be sent to the insurers for manual approval.

Security deposit / Refundable bond
The security deposit of € 2,000 must be paid at the start of a rental.

Liability and Comprehensive Insurance Protection
The renter bears the costs of any damage that occurs during the rental period while using the vehicle in accordance with the contract up to€ 1,200 per case of damage.

If the damage is caused by intent or gross negligence, especially if the renter was unable to drive due to the consumption of drugs or alcohol, the liability limitation does not apply. The same applies to any damage caused by not observing traffic sign 265 (maximum vehicle height on a road). Despite the agreed limitation of liability, the renter is moreover fully liable for any damage caused by failure to observe the vehicle dimensions (vehicle height and width), by improper loading and unloading and by the load or by driving backwards without being directed.

The renter is liable for any damages claimed by a third party against him/her or against McRent that the renter has caused to a third party during the use of the object of rental. The renter is liable for all fees, levies, fines, and punishments that are imposed on the lessor in connection with the use of the vehicle unless they are caused by fault of the lessor.

Authorised Drivers
The vehicle may only be driven by the renter himself/herself and by the drivers specified in the rental contract.

Substitute Vehicle
In case the reserved vehicle cannot be made available at the rental station, the lessor reserves the right to provide a vehicle that is comparable in size and equipment or bigger. That will not cause any additional rental costs for the renter. If a smaller vehicle is offered and accepted by the renter, the price difference of both vehicles is reimbursed. If the provision of a bigger vehicle causes higher ancillary costs, such as ferry charges and tolls or operating costs, such costs are to be borne by the renter.

Trips Abroad
It is possible to make trips abroad within Europe. Any trips to East European countries are subject to the lessor's prior approval. Trips to any war and unstable zones are forbidden.
Please note: No Travel to Russia is allowed.
