Warsaw-Modlin Airport – cheap car hire for 2015 Christmas season in Poland

Cheap car hire Poland – compare rental conditions
When browsing for the cheapest car hire deals through internet search engines, compare not only prices, but also rental conditions, especially in the aspects which may influence the total cost of the rental, for example, the fuel and mileage policies, the excess and the driver’s age.
Unlimited mileage is common in most car hire companies in Poland and so is pick-up full/return full refuelling policy. However, drivers in their early twenties should confirm what driver’s age rules apply before booking. Many rent-a-car providers will apply an additional fee for ‘young drivers’, for their customers aged 21-24.
