Is it really possible to stop at a Carrefour car rental agency and leave with a Dacia, all while paying only 4 euros a day? This weekend, the large distribution company which has 850 rental agencies in France unveiled an unbeatable new offer on paper. To cope with the decline in household purchasing power in these complicated times, and to guarantee access to mobility for all, Carrefour offers a 5-seater Dacia Sandero (in manual gearbox), the cheapest new car on the market (from 11,490 euros).
So inevitably, for a rental of 4 euros per day where other rental agencies sometimes charge ten times more, it makes sense to ask questions. Will you really pay 4 euros per day? To remain a minimum profitable, Carrefour has added a few conditions and additional costs. It should also be noted that the number of vehicles is certainly not very large, as not all rental agencies will be equipped with them. In a press release, Carrefour wrote: “This rental service has been designed to adapt to customers’ real consumption as well as their daily needs for greater freedom in managing their budget”.
The conditions for renting a Dacia at 4 euros/day
Renting a 5-seater Dacia Sandero at Carrefour requires several conditions to be met which will make the bill somewhat bigger. But keep in mind that the price will always be much more attractive than that of a classic rental, for another vehicle at another agency. For example, for a Europcar rental of a Fiat 500 next week in Lyon and for one week, the price is 40 euros per day. The rate may correspond for unlimited mileage, it differs from that for a young driver of 22 years for example (80 euros per day).
With the Dacia at 4 euros per day from Carrefour, you will have to pay more for each kilometer traveled, as they are not included (just like gas and late fees). The price per kilometer is decreasing, it varies according to the duration of reservation of your model. Thus, it will be €0.24 for a rental of 1 to 6 days, 0.22 euro for 7 to 13 days, 0.21 euro for 14 to 29 days, and from 0.20 euros for a rental period of 30 days. Thus, per month, the Dacia Sandero costs 120 euros to which must be added the kilometers traveled (for example 144 euros for 600 kilometers traveled over 30 days).
Another condition, for the rental, it will be necessary to respect an initial security deposit of 1000 euros, a substantial sum for a rental. If you do not want to or cannot do this, then you will have to pay 8.90 euros per day to be able to upgrade to a security deposit of 200 euros. Finally, it is only possible to pay for the rental by credit card, directly in the agencies that have the model. We will show you the list below, but do not hesitate to go upstream to the official website of the Carrefour rental agency to check availability. As a reminder, few copies are available and the brand seems to favor customers looking for a rental for a month and no less.
Pay close attention to late fees. Carrefour is very strict on this point. After 30 minutes, you will have to pay a penalty of 130 euros, which is more than the price of your rental for a month. Penalties are also in vogue in the event of non-compliance with the maintenance of the vehicle (this includes a need for exterior or interior cleaning, both charged 50 euros). Finally, note that it is possible to cancel a reservation free of charge up to 72 hours in advance. After this period, 50 euros will be deducted from your initial security deposit.
