Long-Term Rentals Conditions (Car subscription)

An Oscar long-term rental or car subscription is a subscription solution where you, as a customer, can rent a car on a monthly basis. Below, you can read about the terms of a long-term rental, including payment, liability, binding, and termination. The first payment for a long-term rental must fall on the date of the subscription, after which payments will be made monthly.

  1. Setting Up a Long-term Rental
    When creating a long-term rental, the customer must approve our subscription terms and business conditions. A car subscription is most easily created by using our online booking form, where the customer can find their desired car, see the car price, review included km, and opt for extra insurance, extra km, and accessories if desired. The customer will then be sent for payment, after which the subscription will be created, and a confirmation will be sent by email.

  2. Conditions when setting up a long-term rental
    When the customer approves our subscription terms and conditions, the customer approves that OSCAR may deduct the monthly price for the long-term rental on the entered credit card for the duration of the lease. An invoice is sent upon creation and termination of the long-term rental. Customer service can be contacted at any time if the customer wishes to change the credit card on file.

  3. Responsibility and Liability
    When setting up a long-term rental, the customer undertakes responsibility to return the car on the date the long-term rental is terminated and return it in the same condition as when the car was delivered, unless otherwise agreed. In addition, the customer guarantees coverage on the credit card entered so payment is made on time.

  4. Termination and Fixation
    The customer determines the length of the subscription period when ordering, specifying an exact date for the end of the long-term rental. The long-term rental is automatically terminated after the end of this period. If the subscription is extended, the customer must contact Oscar customer service before the subscription period ends - after which, this can be agreed. If the subscription is canceled before the agreed time, this can be done with 30 days’ notice.

If you have any questions or changes to your long-term rental, please contact our customer service at 42909048.
