What happens when I/we get a fine?
You can either be stopped by the police or the police can send a notification about a fine (ticket).
When you are stopped and pay the fine directly, all is settled. Horizon won’t get a notification.
When we get a notification for a ticket we will send this notification to you and request to pay it through Paypal within 3 days. We’ll pay the (traffic-) police on your behalf and all is settled.

Costs of fines/tickets received after the rental period!!
Be aware that in Bulgaria it can take up to over a year before we get notified that you got a fine/ticket.

We’ll send a copy of the notification of a fine/ticket to you by email with the request to pay within a week to our bank- or Paypal account. This period is strict.
Receiving the amount in time means that we will pay the fine on your behalf. In other cases we’ll hand the copy of your ID and Drivers License to the Traffic Police who will take it further.
Fines are increasing per notification. The second notification comes in a few weeks after each other and the fines are every time higher.

Mind that we increase the fine with 3.5% costs Paypal and € 10,- to cover for our costs.

After your booking through the site you should get a confirmation email from the booking system.
In case you haven’t received the confirmation:
– check your spam-folder. Sometimes it shows up in there.
– doublecheck the email you provided.
– Contact us at info@horizoncarrental.eu or call: 0879 466 408

In the confirmation mail you find the instructions for providing documents needed and for the pick up/drop off.
Mind that Preferred Pick Up is only between 09:30 – 16:30 and only when the documents are received.

When we haven’t received the documents a few days before the rental period, we will send out a reminder to the email provided. We don’t call. When we don’t get a reaction we (might) assume that somebody tried to be funny and made a fake-reservation and cancel the reservation in our system.


Horizon Client Reward Program
When renting a car with us you become part of the Horizon Client Reward Program and can save on future rentals.

How does it work:
Example: 1st. time rent: you rented a car from us from 03/03/2021 08:00 – 06/03/2021 22:00, 4 days. The price is according the 2 – 5 days range and these days will be written on your Clients Card and you built up 4 days. Next time these 4 days will be counting towards the price per day range.

2nd time rent: you rent again a car with us from 28/03/03/2021 09:00 – 31/03/2021 21:00, 4 days. Together with the previous rent you rent(ed) in totally 8 days and the price per day will be in the 6 – 14 day range, making your rental cheaper.

The Horizon Reward Program is not valid for the 1-day range.
Maximum granted within the Horizon Client Reward Program is the 15 – 30 day range.

Days built up ……….
– Will stay for the next 2 year (730 days, not calendar years)
– are personal
– can’t be given to other renters
– will only be used with future rental days
– will never be paid out

You will lose being part of the Horizon Client Reward Program after:
– a damage or an accident at your responsibility
– a cancellation within 48 hours before the rental
– a no-show
