Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

The Albanian Drivers are an intersting Lot. It seems that the bigger your car is the more entitled to the road you are. Rentng a Skoda Fabia meant we hadto drive defensively and always be on the alert for someone overtaking towards you on a blind corner. Thankfully we never encounterred any, but we certainly saw several insane manouvres going in the same direction as we were.

I visited mainly flat land areas, although this was 1.6 Littre engine, and very economical car, it was not so great going up hill but can still manage in 1st gear. Visiting rural areas was very good for a family with plenty of space. If you plan going up steep country roads, I'd go for a 2.2 Littre engine.
