COVID-19 Update

Coronavirus Update

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.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

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.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

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). Our flexible cancellation policy also remains exactly the same.

Airport Car Rental

Pick up your rental car right at Istanbul Airport! Get to know Istanbul’s past—visit the world-famous Hagia Sophia and historical sites like the Theodosian Walls of Constantinople. And make sure to drive over Bosphorus Bridge. You’ll be traveling between two continents, Europe and Asia!

If you need a break from all the history, enjoy Istanbul at a slower pace by driving your rental through its older neighborhoods. Each has a history and character of its own. Stop at coffee shops and restaurants, sample local favorites like balik ekmek or kumpir, try some lokum, and don’t forget the delicious street food. When you’re ready for the hustle and bustle again, enjoy an unforgettable shopping experience at one of Istanbul’s markets or bazaars, all located in the Old City peninsula.

Istanbul is magnificent, but Turkey has even more to offer. Drive your rental car to the beaches of Antalya, visit the otherworldly sites of Cappadocia or travel to neighboring Greece or Bulgaria!
