If you are under 25 you must have held a full driving licence for a minimum of 2 years, if you are over 25 you must have held a full driving licence for a minimum of 1 year. If you have any endorsements/disqualifications on your licence, please notify us upon booking in case we are unable to insure you. 

What documents do I need to hire a vehicle? 

You will need your driving licence, if you are on a UK licence you must have or know your NI number so we can carry out a licence check. You will need to provide x2 proofs of address dated within the last 3 months for example a bill or a bank statement and a credit/debit card.

What if I want to cancel my hire?

Once a vehicle is booked and a credit/debit card supplied, we do operate a no cancellation policy.

 

Do you charge a security deposit?

Yes, security deposits range between £100 - £200. This is refunded back to the card it came from once the vehicle has been returned. We allow one week from the date of return and process refunds on the following Friday. This allows any PCNs, if incurred, a chance to arrive. All refunds are done via a card machine so please allow a couple of days for funds to clear in your account. 

Full terms and conditions will be on the reverse of your hire agreement which will be given to you upon delivery/collection. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
