Initial address of the city office (on the lease) in Riga was outdated (due to recent relocation), which fortunately I found out before the rental. For this I would have expected an info email from CarDelMar. The rental itself went smoothly, the car was as booked and had no problems. Return at the airport was badly signposted, but because of good explanation when renting (with a copy of the directions) but easy to find. Returning took place on normal airport parking lot in the free one (with us the weather fortunately was good). However, we did not receive a return receipt.

We ordered the car to pick up at the Riga-Altstadt station. Only there is no office there, but a so-called "Meet and Greet" service, where you better call 1 hour before to make sure that it works as planned. The car will be brought extra from the airport. This worked well in our case and to our surprise we even got a bigger car class for the same price. The next surprise was then the tank contents, which was only 1/8 (about 100km), in the rental conditions was "get full, return full". We should then bring back the car again with 1/8, which of course not as easy as full. The next surprise, however, was completely unexpected, as nowhere mentioned: we should wash the car before the return! We've never had such a condition before, but it fits in with the minimal philosophy of Green Motion, as they seem to have no cleaning at the airport either. The return was actually planned for the same location, but we inquired if a return at the airport would be possible. The staff told us that this would indeed be beneficial as they would not have to drive extra to the city with 2 people to bring the car back. In that case someone would even bring us back to the city and we would not have to wash the car either. So we took over the car, which showed no damage except for a few marks marked in the contract. The trip went without a hitch and we decided to return the car conveniently at the airport, which is why I inquired by phone for the opening hours: at the airport 24h. After the airport station was a bit hard to find with Navi (we were from Jelgava and it was late night), we discovered that this was simply a long-term parking near the airport, which the operator seems to share with the car rental company , The container office, however, was abandoned and locked. The phone number was busy. After about 10 minutes waiting time came but then a car with 2 employees, which were very surprised by the promised return conditions, but this finally accepted, probably because the car was still clean. We were then even back to the hotel in Riga, but unfortunately we did not receive a written return slip. If the somewhat unusual rental conditions are announced in advance, we can recommend Green Motion, but the rental price was now not so much cheaper than an established rental, especially since then the washing costs and the time required to do so.

There were unexpected insurance costs for Estonia and Lithuania, each for the full rental period, although you can not be in three countries at the same time. So the costs were more than 30% higher than expected. During the transfer, the car was described as defect-free, during my tour I discovered in four different places scratches and a bump, which I registered. The return was carefully looked after ...

How can I get a cheap car rental in Latvia?

Here's a rundown of our top tips if you want to score the cheapest possible car rental:

  • Compare as many different bargain deals as possible (we make that task child's play!);
  • Register for our Price Drop Alert and immediately discover when prices get lower for your desired location;
  • Before you pick up your keys and get behind the wheel, check out both airport and non-airport pickup and drop-off outlets to ensure you're scoring the hottest deal around;
  • If your vacation is somewhat flexible, adjust your dates slightly to find cheaper prices on different days of the week;
  • See if you can keep your pickup and drop-off times as similar as possible. If you return your car later than you picked it up, you might be charged an extra day unnecessarily;
  • Some rental companies offer big incentives to pay upfront, so make sure you keep your eyes open for these penny-pinching offers;
  • Finally, yet importantly, secure your preferred vehicle as soon as you possibly can to bag a load of savings!
