Yes, at some of our offices, when adding our Meet & Greet service to your booking, you choose to have your vehicle delivered at the airport’s terminal.
If you have made a booking through our website, you have 24 hours since the planned collection time of the booking to collect the vehicle at the office. Once 24 hours have gone by, the booking is breached and it is marked as a ‘no show’. This condition will always depend on the availability of the vehicles.
In case the flight is delayed, if you haven’t reported the flight number before the rental, the collection service outside of office hours can’t be guaranteed. If you have given notice, you will have 40 minutes to report to the office after your flight has landed, provided your flight/train has not been delayed by over 60 minutes after the office’s closing time.
Record go will not reimburse the reservation fee in the event of a ‘no show’.
In Spain, Italy and Greece, we do not offer rentals with vehicle return at a different office or ‘one-ways’; you must return the rented vehicle to the office from which it was collected.
If it is returned to a different office, a penalty fee will be applied and, in addition, the contract holder will be charged the daily rental fee* and all vehicle-recovery costs.
(Price table in section ‘4. Extras, Accessories, Charges, and Coverage’)
As an exception to this rule, the ‘One-way’ extra may be purchased at the counter in our Portuguese offices.

Outside of office hours pick-up:
At some of our offices we offer the ‘out of office hours pick-up service’. In order to ensure we can provide you this service, you have to indicate the flight number before the collection date of the vehicle. Once the flight has landed, the holder will have 40 minutes to pick up the vehicle at the office.
This service involves an extra charge of €40.
Outside of office hours return:
At our offices in Alicante, Málaga, Barcelona Airport, Madrid, Madrid Atocha, Sevilla Santa Justa and Palma de Mallorca we offer the 24-hour ‘Return outside of office hours’ option. In this case, no additional booking process needs to be done and the keys to the rental vehicle simply need to be dropped off in the parcel boxes at our offices’ parking.
In Spain and Portugal, if you purchase the ‘Crossing borders’ extra, you can drive between these two countries, plus France, Gibraltar and Andorra.
You can also travel between the islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, but not from mainland Spain to the Balearic Islands, or vice versa. Travel to Formentera and Cabrera is also not permitted.
In Greece, you may not leave the country, though you can travel between islands.
If you wish to purchase this extra, it will apply for the entire rental period and will only be available on the rental of four-wheeled vehicles.
If the ‘Crossing borders’ extra is not purchased and the rental vehicle is driven outside of the authorised territory, a penalty fee will be applied, as well as the invalidity of the insurance coverage and the consequences specified in point 1.4 of ‘Obligations of the contract holder regarding the vehicle’.
No, it is essential that the holder of the booking and the main driver are present at the time of the pick-up or we won’t be able to hand the vehicle.
