Frequently Asked Questions
How can I change my confirmed booking, the flight number, extras, etc?
Do I have to go to the office to extend the rental period? Can I do it by telephone?
If you wish to extend a rental period that is in effect, you must visit our Malaga Airport office. You cannot extend a rental period by telephone.
Please remember that if the car is not returned by the agreed drop-off time, you will lose all insurance cover (if insurance was purchased). You would therefore be liable for any type of damage that the car may suffer.
How can I cancel my booking?
What is your cancellation policy? Is there a cancellation fee?
Niza Cars does not apply a cancellation fee for bookings to be paid at delivery time as long as you cancel your booking through our website, by telephone or by email (email@example.com). We would be grateful if you could let us know at least 24 hours before your pick-up.
In case the payment of the reservation is made online, the cancellation of the booking will have the following charges:
If the cancellation is made up to 48 hours before collection, the cancellation fee will be 20 €
If the cancellation is between 24-48 hours prior to collection of the vehicle, the cost will be 1 day of rental, being the minimum applicable of 20 €
Cancellation less than 24 hours prior collection will have a cost of 50 € of the rental cost.
How can I guarantee having the car model I want?
Niza Cars is not able to guarantee a specific model, unless otherwise specified on our website, as is the case for the Premium Fleet. We can however guarantee that you will receive a car from the same group, and if there is no availability, a car from a superior group at no additional cost to you.

Yes, you can make a booking if you show us proof of the licence renewal.
