The vehicle displayed and models listed are the most common vehicles used by our car rental partners. We cannot guarantee the make or model of the rental vehicle will be the same as the vehicle displayed on our website. However, when we say ‘or similar’ we can assure you that the vehicle you collect will be of a similar grade as your initial request.

We will make every effort to supply the model displayed on our website. However, it is impossible for us to guarantee that a specific make and model will be provided. 

If the make/model of vehicle that you booked is not available, the rental agent will supply a suitable alternative from the same vehicle group classification or from a larger group.

If you wish to extend the rental period, after collection of the car, you may be charged locally at the local daily rate, which may be higher than our pre-paid rates. You will need to contact our car rental partner directly to advise them of your revised drop-off date and to confirm the charges involved.

Extending or shortening your rental prior to travel is also possible, this can be done on the web by contacting us.

General Terms and Advice

Local Legislation All vehicle rentals are subject to the legal terms, conditions and pricing procedures of the local supplier in effect at the time of printing this contract. In the event of subsequent enactment of any law in the Country of rental, which prohibits any of those terms, conditions or pricing procedures, the local supplier terms, conditions and prices will be subject to adjustment to the extent necessary to compensate for such restrictions or prohibitions.

Flight Information At the time of booking a flight number and an estimated arrival time is required, Should you be unable to supply a flight number and estimated arrival time at the time of booking, will need this information at least 72 hours prior to departure. In the event of flight delays, should this information has not been given we cannot accept responsibility for any failed rental.

Late Bookings Please note that it is advisable that you book a minimum of 72 hours before travelling to avoid disappointment as some suppliers reservation offices do not operate over the weekends and in busy periods there may be no car availability. Bookings made on Monday to Thursday normally require a minimum of 24 hours to confirm with suppliers.

Worldwide Driving Licence Requirements A full current driving licence is required to collect a vehicle. It must be issued in the country of domicile. A translation is required if the passport is not written using the Roman Alphabet. Please note: If you have the new UK driving licence you will need to take the photocard as well as the full paper version, our suppliers may refuse to hire a vehicle to you, if you forget it. Exception to above: The terms & conditions of our contract with our suppliers dictate that we cannot rent a vehicle in North America to anyone with a North American driving licence.

Deposits Deposits vary dependant on your chosen location. A valid credit card is required with the required space on it and should be in the name as the lead driver (as per the voucher). Fuel deposits are sometimes required, if this is the case most of our suppliers require the vehicle to be returned as empty as possible. Please check locally in case the policy at your particular location is different.

Provision of Cars Please note that our suppliers reserve the right to refuse to hire a customer a vehicle, if they feel that in their opinion, the person is unfit to drive or does not meet the eligibility requirements. In such a case the contract with us will terminate and we will have no further liability to you.

Number of Passengers All our vehicles are insured to take a maximum number of passengers. We will not accept responsibility if the vehicle is not large enough to fit all passengers and luggage on arrival if details were not supplied at the time of booking.

Driving Restrictions In some countries/states you are not allowed to drive across the border, please check with reservations at the time of booking. Should you drive across one of these particular borders you will not be covered by your insurance policy and we will not be held responsible for any such outcome.

Insurance Exclusions & Excess The no excess insurance policy we have in place covers you for the excess that you may be charged if damage is caused as a result of an accident. You may be charged this excess by the local supplier, but can reclaim this providing you have a police report and have completed an accident report form on returning your car, then forward a copy of this to us. We will refund the excess that the customer has paid within 21 days of receiving their accident report form. The no excess insurance policy does not apply to prestige vehicles (Standard vehicles or higher in Europe & Minivans or higher in North America), and does not cover damage to tyres, windows, the roof, the underside, the interior of the car, towing charges or damage caused wilfully or through negligence. You may therefore be liable for the cost of this damage. Insurance cover is not provided for the contents of the vehicle in the event of theft. In the event that keys are lost or damaged you will be liable for the costs of obtaining a replacement.

Car Type/Suitability We are unable to guarantee any particular make or model of vehicle, however wherever possible we will request a specific vehicle type on your behalf. Cars are subject to availability.

Mechanical Difficulties/Accidents Most of our suppliers offer a 24-hour breakdown service, please consult your voucher wallet or ask a member of the reservations department if your specific supplier offers this service.

Complaints We aim to resolve complaints within two weeks from the date of receipt. However, from time to time some complaints take a little longer to investigate. Even in this scenario we will endeavour to close the complaint within one month from the date of receipt.

Are car rental prices all inclusive?

Always Check Supplier Terms & Conditions:
Our website compares over 550 car rental supplier prices worldwide. Each supplier has a unique set of terms and conditions, therefore please always check the individual supplier terms before placing an online car rental booking.

Most rental rates include:
1. Unlimited mileage, except Banff and Jasper in Canada and Australia and certain car types worldwide. 
2. Third party insurance.
3. All local taxes except Australia where taxes are paid locally by law.
4. Theft waiver.
5. Airport surcharges, with the exception of Israel.
6. Bail bonds (where needed).
7. Collision damage waiver liability. This covers you for damage to your hired car in the event of an accident, except where negligence is proved.

Can you confirm what the CDW excess is?

CDW covers the renter for the majority of the vehicle cost in case of an accident , damage or theft. However the inclusive amounts offered within each contract are specific to each vehicle group.

e.g. An economy vehicle that includes CDW may have an excess of 300 Euros and a compact from the same supplier may have an excess of 400 Euros.

An damage excess cover (or excess reduction fee) is offered by all suppliers, and is additional to any costs. It allows the renter to pay a daily price to reduce the excess further.

i.e You may pay 5 euros per day to reduce the excess for the economy car from 300 Euros to 100 Euros.

In some case the excess may even be reduced to 0 Euros. Although this charge is only made locally, it is not necessary for you to purchase this excess reduction fee as you are already fully insured with the CDW that is included in the pre-paid rental rate.
