A credit card. This usually has to be a Visa, Mastercard or AMEX card. A debit card or cash is acceptable at some locations but not all.
You will need to sign a rental agreement. Although our rates are fully inclusive of taxes insurance and surcharges there can be local charges such as child seats, one way fees, personal accident insurance, car upgrade, petrol, enhanced roadside assistance or anything else you agree with the car rental company. You must agree and sign for any such items on collection of the car, as part of the contract rental. It is your responsibility to check the paperwork supplied before you sign the contract as any extras you sign for cannot be subsequently refunded. If you see any charges on the paperwork that you have not agreed to then ask a staff member to remove the charge. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CLAIM A REFUND FOR ITEMS/INSURANCE/UPGRADES SIGNED FOR BY ACCIDENT. Please take a moment to ensure that you fully understand the agreement before you sign it.
Before driving off
Before driving off check the condition of the car condition carefully. Check for dents and scratches to the exterior. Check the condition of tyres. Check the underside. Check the interior seats, carpet, door panels. If you see any damage report it to the car hire company and see that they note the faults on your contract before you drive off, otherwise you might have to pay for the repair of the damage when you return the vehicle.
