Decode is not a traditional rental site, because their function is that of a broker. They make deals directly with car rental places and then offer you the best prices.
Once Decode has suggested the car & “offer price”, you have to wait until the actual car rental agency confirms it. They’ll then send you the booking number and voucher which you need to present when you pick up the car. That process normally takes 3 hours.
At first we were very skeptical (the main reason it took us so long to blog about it) – I mean, a car for €12/day over a broker? We were more than a little nervous when we picked up the car the first time… when we presented the voucher, the employee couldn’t believe the price we were getting. But after a quick phone call he confirmed: yup it’s €12 a day. Incredible!
More reasons why you should book with Decode:
- No hidden fees
- A huge selection of quality cars
- Fast and easily comparable quotes
- The promise of our lowest price guarantee
We can confirm all of that!
More info from their site: Not only do we claim the guaranteed lowest prices, we deliver them too. Our staff is constantly contacting rental car providers to negotiate the cheapest and most current prices. If you find a lower price on a different website, we will try and beat the price within 24 hours.
Give them a try… I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Leave a comment with your experience. We’d love to know if this helps people get great deals!

Please note: Last summer, there was a major car rental shortage. The same thing will likely happen again this summer, so book early. Prices are already going up!!!
Booking Centre Online also has good rates, if you want to compare & contrast.
