What is Cross-Border Fee?
Cross-border fee is a fee that covers extra taxes, insurance, and other expenses that car rental companies charge. Drivers need to the inform their car rental companies, if they’re going to cross countries during their trips.
What happens if I don’t pay the cross-border fees?
If you don’t inform the car rental company and not pay for the cross-border fee, the rental car insurance won’t be valid. The rental car company will charge you for the damages, and also may charge for extra taxes and other fees.

If you travel more than one country during the rental period, we suggest you to pay for the cross-border fee.
