Car rental - very confused

Jump to last reply

I am looking to hire a car at the city office in Vienna and return it to the airport. As I compare rates across multiple companies, the T&Cs are completely confusing...

a. Is the tax for a rental pickup or return to an airport included in the quote they provide?
b. I don't need CDW as my credit card provides it - will it be mandated by the car rental at the time of pickup? The website allows option to book the rental without CDW.
c. Any recommendations for a hassle free car rental experience?

Last qtn : I have a US driving license since 2001. But I dont reside there now and can't get an International Driving license from there now. I have a local driving license in Dubai - but they make a distinction between manual and automatic - and I have an automatic license. The IDP will be for this license - will it cause an issue with a manual car hire? I am very comfortable driving manual.....
