The surrounding park is offers beautiful picnic grounds. From there, drive to the Umeda Sky Building, an interesting landmark due to its bizarre shape. Its observatory features a great open-air view of the whole city which travellers are advised to experience at night.

The rich culture of Japan can be seen through its older buildings. The Sumiyoshi Shrine, one of the oldest shrines in the country is worth a visit. The structure dates back to the 1800s and is one of the best examples of traditional Japanese architecture.

Shopping districts around Osaka are also easily accessible with a car rental. Shinsaibashi is one of the most famous with its huge department stores and independent boutiques. For those shopping for electronics, a drive to Nipppmbashi to the southeast of Namba is in order.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
