The ordering process consists of 5 steps.
As soon as we receive your order, SAMI PORT RENT A CAR will accept it or not depending on the availability. This is the reason why making your reservation some time in advance is important, especially during the peak season of July-August.
It is essential that you provide a correct e-mail address and mobile phone number, as the voucher contains important information on the delivery of the rental car at your destination. Delivery instructions and telephone numbers will be written on your voucher.
SAMI PORT RENT A CAR will not ask you an advance payment. The total amount for your car rental will be paid upon delivery of the car either by credit card in the name of the driver or in cash. A major credit card is required for guarantee reasons. In case of a Bank wire transfer you should send us by email your Bank’s receipt for immediate confirmation of the rental reservation.
DELIVERY - PICKUP INFORMATION
While making your reservation, it is essential that you provide some important information:
If this information is not available at the time of booking, you have to inform SAMI PORT RENT A CAR about these details at least 3 days before the rental start date either online or by phone at the number appearing on your voucher. If this information is not provided in time; SAMI PORT RENT A CAR cannot accept responsibility or compensation for a failed rental.
OUT OF WORKING HOUR CHARGES
The possibility of getting a car OUT of normal working hours (21:00 to 08:00) exists in most locations; however, an additional charge of 25,00€ (incl. VAT) for “out of working hours” service may apply.
During the booking procedure, you will be able to see the details. In case the car pick-up falls outside normal working hours due to a flight/ ferry delay or for any other reason, the additional fee is charged locally, where the “out of working hours” service is available.

The driver’s minimum age is 21 years old, and the maximum is 70 years old. The age limits appear on the page with the available cars for your selected destination.

Facsimiles/photocopies or pictures of driving licenses are not acceptable.
PERIOD OF RENTAL

Changes made in the time of return after the rental start should be handled by the car rental company.
In case of a delayed flight etc., SAMI PORT RENT A CAR allows a change in the time of delivery of up to 1 hour, meaning that your rental period starts counting 1 hour later than on the reservation. There will be no extra charge for this except in the case the “out of working hour” charge applies.
In order to make a modification, you have to cancel your initial booking in order to make a new one. It depends on SAMI PORT RENT A CAR if any refund can be made for any unused days.
