A week before the trip, I began to track price movements. I chose according to a simple principle, I booked a Volkswagen Golf car, where the main requirements were the availability of an automatic transmission, air conditioning and insurance. A week before the trip, this car cost 35,000 rubles for 14 days.
And then I made the first mistake, forgetting that in August, the high season I did not book it. The price grew every day and as a result, just before the departure, the blind price was 777 euros.

The blind price is when you book a car class and that's it. At the exit, the car can be of any brand, but not lower than the class that you have booked, but without exact specifications. There is no guarantee that the car will be with an automatic transmission, and insurance only with a deductible.

Upon arrival, I was offered additional services, namely:
Insurance without a franchise, roadside assistance, glass repair without a franchise, a tow truck, and round-the-clock technical support.
And so the price rose to almost 1,500 euros. In this case, the car was from a manual transmission. For the machine it was necessary to pay another 350 euros.

A week before the trip for this budget it was possible to take a BWM 4 convertible, and now only the ugly Toyota on the mechanics.

Yes, I took 1 additional option - evacuation in case of an accident and left the standard franchise, it is 1,600 euros here. Those. in the case of the total loss of the car, you get to 1600 euros, and in the case of minor accidents you pay it in full, but not more than 1 600 euros.
Also a strange scheme, which only works with serious damage, total death and car theft.
Conclusion
Book better in advance and with the required options.

I advise you not to take the navigator, it will be wildly expensive. Better buy yourself a travel card for communication and the Internet and ride with your smartphone. Plus you will always have internet.
