How does it work?
These deals are called car relocations. Europcar needs people to move their cars from one city to another, so they offer great deals to drivers to help them out--it saves the company money, because they don't have to hire trucks to move their cars! These trips are almost always one way, and only available for a limited time. The starting and ending cities for these trips vary, as well as the milage allowances. Europcar lets you use the vehicle for at least 24 hours or more, depending on the trip. The rental is truly only €1/£1/$1 AUD, but you may be required to put down a completely refundable deposit.
Who can drive?
There are no special license requirements to take advantage of these RV relocation deals. As long as you have a valid driver's license and are at least 21 years old, you can hit the road. Also, it is good to note that Europcar includes basic vehicle insurance. Check the company's website for more information about insurance coverage.
How much is gas?
Gas prices depend on the vehicle you are renting and the length of the journey. The car will be provided to you with a full tank of gas, but you'll be expected to return it with a full tank. Gas (or "petrol") is sold by the liter in Australia and Europe, so keep that in mind when budgeting your trip.
