Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the hired car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Tokyo.

What are "one-way rentals"? A one-way rental is an option that you can choose while booking your hired car. One-way rental means that you pick up your hired car at one station and return it at another. In other words, this means that the pick-up station, therefore, does not correspond to the drop-off station
On Driveboo.com, you can inform yourself where rental stations are and where to return the hired car. Many car hire companies offer one-way rentals for a one-way fee.
In Tokyo, you can decide if you want to visit some more cities and destinations around Tokyo. For example, you can visit cities near Tokyo, such as Yokohama or Shizuoka.
In addition to the main driver, who usually also booked the hired car, one or more additional drivers are also allowed to drive the hired car. Having an additional driver is a great option, especially for long journeys or longer tours with a hired car! So you can hand over the steering wheel and everybody has the opportunity to relax or just look out of the window and enjoy the scenery. If you don't book this option, only the person who booked the car is insured in case of an accident.
