I never got the rental car. There was no counter or way for me to get in touch with the rental company or team. The one number that was provided was not working and no one answered.

There is no Avis booth in Delhi airport and there is no proper contact information provided. I spent one and half hour to get the car to pick us from airport.Proper information if we book a self driving car.

I want honesty. AVIS advertise that their location is in terminal but it's not. A man shows up after 2 hrs based on a call u make after you land to take you to an office 20 mins away and makes you pay for the car he came in to pick you up. AVIS in Delhi airport is a SCAMStart with being honest about what you are doing and then we can discuss methods of improvement

There is not AVIS on airport

Hidden detailsThe car was nice and clean when we picked it up.When you rent the car, the confirmation says that you pick it up at the airport terminal. There is no desk for their rentals, so we had to call and wait 30 mins for someone to pick us up from the airport, then take us 20 mins back to their office to sign paperwork. Then when we had to drop the car, the person that was supposed to meet us at the airport was late.

Car hire excess insurance in New Delhi

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some New Delhi car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in New Delhi.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your New Delhi car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in New Delhi

  • Car hire in New Delhi offers a number of advantages with regard to your freedom of movement in the city. Public transport can be chaotic and may be challenging if you are not used to travelling in Indian conditions. Hiring a car gives you greater freedom and control over where you can go and how you get there. Driving conditions, however, may be very different to what you are used to, and your decision to hire a car should be balanced against your skills as a driver. A car is certainly advantageous overall but you should still be well prepared for inconveniences and heavy traffic.
  • Carzonrent has an office for car hire in New Delhi in Terminal 3 (International Terminal), just after the customs section at Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL). This Indian company holds the franchise in India for Hertz International. Europcar and Avis have offices at Terminal 1 (Domestic Terminal), which is convenient if you are arriving from another destination in India. You can also take the shuttle bus from Terminal 3, if you are arriving on an international flight and would prefer not to go through Carzonrent for any reason. Please note that booking a car at the airport is more expensive than booking online.
  • Driving in New Delhi requires constant attention and good reflexes. The traffic is notoriously chaotic and drivers should be prepared for the unexpected. All kinds of vehicles are on the roads, ranging from bikes, motorbikes, rickshaws, tuk-tuks, cars, trucks and buses, through to horses, donkeys, tractors and pedestrians. At times, it may seem like "anything goes" and not everyone cares about traffic rules, so keep calm and be prepared to be flexible when considering New Delhi car hire.
  • There are a number of challenges involved with driving in New Delhi; everything from traffic jams, poorly-maintained roads to unconventional vehicles and road users can cause a motorist stress. India’s roads have been rated "the fourth most dangerous in the world" and require some attention and calm nerves to navigate. Rush hour in New Delhi is actually 12h long and runs from 08:00 until 20:00 every day.
