If your driving licence is in Roman characters and is legible, we will consider it valid for your rental.
However, we would like to remind you that the authorities may ask you for an international driving licence if your licence is not issued by a country of the European Union or a country that has signed an agreement. In this case, we recommend that you also carry your international driving licence with you.
In this case, the driving licence must be accompanied by a sworn translation of the licence.

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 we don’t offer rentals with return at a different office or one-ways, therefore, you must return the rented vehicle in the same office you collected it at.
If it is returned at a different office, a penalty fee of €200 is applied and, in addition, the contract holder will be responsible for the payment of the daily rental fee* and of the vehicle recovery costs.

As an exception, at the counter of our Portuguese offices you can hire the ‘One-way’ extra.
Yes, we offer a courtesy period of 59 minutes from the time indicated in your contract to return the vehicle.
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, 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.
If you have the ‘Crossing borders’ extra, you will be able to drive in France, Portugal, Gibraltar and Andorra, as well as embark between the islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, but not from the Mainland to the Balearic Islands or vice versa. Travelling to Formentera and Cabrera is not permitted either. If this extra is hired, it has to be applied to the entire rental period.
If the client has not signed up for ‘border crossing’ and driving outside the authorised territory, a €200 penalty will be applied, in addition to the applicable cancellation of coverages and the consequences specified in point 1.4 of “Contract holder obligations with respect to the vehicle”. This consists of the coverage being nullified and the contract holder becoming responsible for rental vehicle damages, towing fees, repatriation, and any and all expenses incurred, up to the full value of the deduction.
In the event that the vehicle is driven beyond France, the penalty will be €1000 plus €1 for each kilometre travelled from the start of the rental in addition to the corresponding cancellation of coverages and the consequences specified in point 1.4 of "Obligations of the contract holder in relation to the vehicle".
This extra is only available for vehicles with four wheels.
