Nuances of a contractual lease
Long-term lease is not an easy task. But it is possible to solve it, if you turn to our company SOLO rent a car. We have a chic fleet of various cars from brand manufacturers. All of them are in excellent technical condition and most are equipped with an automatic gearbox, which facilitates driving through unfamiliar terrain.

There are two ways to do this - on arrival at the airport or at the railway station, where there are our racks and managers will help in 15-20 minutes to draw up a contract. And you can book transport in advance - it is better to do it 6 weeks before the planned departure. So you can count on the lowest possible cost of the service. In any case, the requirements remain the same - the client must be over 21 years old, have a year of driving experience. It will be necessary to provide a passport, a driver's license (of international standard) and an international bank card.
There are certain nuances of such contractual relations, which should be known and to which one must be prepared. Rise in price may occur if you decide to return the "iron horse" at a time that is considered to be non-working for us, to do so in a city where there is no representation, a desire or the need to travel outside the European Union. Also, the machine can not be transferred to other persons without previously stipulating it in the partnership document.
