For all airport collections, we ask you to provide us with the correct flight number and arrival time when booking your vehicle. This is to ensure that if your flight is delayed your car will be held and staff will be in place to greet you when you arrive. If this information is not available to you at the time of booking, we ask you to provide us with it at least 5 days before your arrival date. If we do not receive this information in time, we cannot take responsibility for a failed rental.
Drivers must be eligible to hold a drivers license for 8 years at the commencement of rental to drive groups EBMN/EDMN/CDMN/EDAN/CDAN. For groups, IDMN/CWMN/IDMD/IDAR drivers must be eligible to hold a drivers license for 9 years, while for groups FDMR/SVMR/FVMR/FDAR/SVAR/FFMR/FFAR/PDAR/IFMR/IFAR drivers must be eligible to hold a license for 11 years. Drivers over the age of 74 will need to provide a medical certificate which states that they are fit to drive and a letter from their insurance company stating that they are currently driving and have not had an accident within the last 5 years.

Additional Driver :
Additional drivers can be added for a daily fee of €10.22. Additional drivers can be added on collection of the vehicle only. Normal age and license restrictions apply. Please note unauthorized drivers are not covered by our insurance and are prohibited from driving the rental car. The additional driver must be present at the time of pickup and must fulfill all the same criteria as the principal driver.
Driving license :
Drivers (and additional drivers) must be in possession of a full, unendorsed driving license which they have held for at least 2 years prior to the commencement of the rental. Licences must be produced in person at the rental location on the collection of the vehicle. Drivers must be in possession of their license at all times when driving the vehicle. If a driver has any endorsements on their license, they must contact our Reservations Department prior to booking as there may be restrictions on renting. Failure to inform us of endorsements will result in the driver being refused the vehicle and forfeiting any deposit taken. Licences must be from the country of permanent residence. Holders of UK, US, Canadian, Australian and all EU member states are NOT required to supply an International Driving Permit (IDP). International Driving Permits where required, MUST BE accompanied by the original domestic license of the driver. This is clearly stated on the international permit. An International permit presented without the domestic license, will not be accepted.
It is a legal requirement that the driver must have both the card and the paper part of their UK license. Where the paper part is missing, the rental agent will be required to contact the DVLA to confirm that there are no endorsements on the license. In the event that we must contact the DVLA, an administration fee of EUR11.35 will apply to the rental. We can only contact the DVLA within their standard hours of operation (please see http://www.dft.gov.uk/dvla/). Where we cannot contact the DVLA, we accept no responsibility for a failed rental. Please ensure that you have your driving license with you on the collection of the vehicle.

Terms of booking on this website
The rates on this website are often heavily discounted. This is due to our negotiated rates and bulk buying power. On very rare occasions, a rate may be displayed incorrectly due to our, or a vehicle supplier's error. In such a case, if you book with us at a quoted rate that is incorrect, we will notify you of any price change and give you the option to proceed or cancel. We make every effort to keep information on our site up to date, but we cannot guarantee this website is free of errors or omissions and retain the right to update or change the information published at any time.
To the extent permitted by law we/the owners of this website will not be liable to you or to any third party (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) for any direct, indirect or consequential loss or damage (including but not limited to any accident, injury, delay or loss of enjoyment) arising out of your reliance upon information contained on this website, including but not limited to your use (or inability to use) any products or services described or procured through this website.
When you pick up your vehicle, you will be required to sign a rental agreement with the supplier of the vehicle. Your rental and use of the vehicle will be governed by the terms of the rental agreement and any other documentation or information provided to you by the supplier at the time you pick up your vehicle. The rental agreement is between you and the supplier and we will not be liable to you or to any third party in relation to the terms of the supplier's rental agreement or any other documentation provided to you by the supplier at the time of pick up.
While we will make reasonable efforts to ensure we are representing only reputable suppliers, we make no warranty about the fitness or suitability of any third party (supplier) product or service and will not accept responsibility for the quality or fitness of any vehicle. We welcome feedback from our customers on their experience with our suppliers. We may, at our discretion, provide you with reasonable assistance in resolving any dispute you may have with a supplier.
Our total liability to you in relation to your use of this website and the information contained on this website will not exceed the dollar amount of the deposit we have received from you in relation to your booking/rental.

If you are booking via phone, please make sure you have read the terms and conditions of the vehicle you wish to rent first.

Luggage capacity where shown is an indication only and we will not be responsible should you be unable to fit your entire luggage into a vehicle. It is your responsibility to choose a journey that is within your capabilities. A vehicle supplier can refuse to rent a vehicle to any person who is in their opinion unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. In such circumstances we will have no further liability to you.
In the event of cancellation, any deposit amounts paid at the time of booking are non-refundable.
If you are unsatisfied with our service, please contact us within 48 hours of placing your booking or request and we will work to resolve any issues and determine if compensation is due.
