By booking a car through our website the renter confirms to have read, understood and accepted the relevant Terms. In case of doubt or miscomprehension of any of the terms, please contact us and we would be glad to elaborate them.

Cars are booked by category and not by specific brands even if a particular brand is displayed on the site. The brand is displayed with “or similar” which means that either the displayed brand or a similar one of the same category will be provided at the rental desk.

The cars listed on the site are usually available and can be chosen by the renter. Those that are listed with an “on request” display require a confirmation from the car rental company. In this case, the confirmation will be sent to the renter once the car hire company confirms the availability of the car. Please note that there will be no contract for car hire at the price offered until the booking has been confirmed and the necessary payment is received. If any questions arise, please feel free to contact us.

The contract and the rental agreement will be with the lead driver/renter regardless of the payment being made by the renter or any third party. If a third party pays for a booking on behalf of the lead driver/renter they have no rights or benefits pursuant to the contract.

Rental Contract

The voucher is only a proof of booking with all the Conditions. At the counter, the car rental company will issue a rental agreement. The renter is required to read and sign the agreement while making sure that it complies with the Terms on the voucher. The rental staff might try to sell additional services which are not required for the pick-up of the car but could be useful. Anything that is accepted to buy at the counter will be solely the renter’s responsibility and cannot be claimed back from us or from the car rental company. However the renter chooses to book, it is important to understand how and when a contract is formed. The technical steps required for a contract to be formed are as follows.

When we quote prices over the telephone or place our services on our website we are inviting renters to purchase our services. A renter will make an offer to purchase the services either verbally or by making the ‘Book Now’ selection. We would accept this offer once we make the voucher / eVoucher available to the renter and receive the necessary payment. We act as an agent between the renter and the car hire company through an agreement.

We are responsible for the losses a renter suffers as a result of us breaking this agreement if the losses are a foreseeable consequence of us breaking the agreement. Losses are foreseeable where they could be contemplated by both the renter and us at the time of our agreement. We are not responsible for the indirect losses which might take place as a side effect of the main loss or damage and which are not foreseeable by the renter and us. Nor are we liable for, without limitations, loss of profits, loss of opportunity, loss of goodwill or consequential losses, damages and costs.

We are not be liable vicariously through the car hire companies for either any failure to perform or any delay in performing any of our obligations under or pursuant to booking, voucher / eVoucher, rental or Terms and Conditions. If our performance is delayed, hindered or prevented by any event beyond our control for more than 14 consecutive days we may terminate and withdraw this booking by giving 14 days’ notice to the renter's original billing address and refunding all amounts paid prior to the force majeure event.

We have the right to cancel a booking upon limited or immediate notice in certain circumstances, such as the insolvency of a car hire company. In all circumstances, we will use our reasonable endeavors to arrange for the supply of an alternative car, but at times of high demand it may not be possible. If we notify a customer who has made a fully pre-paid booking up to 48 hours before pick-up, the customer will receive a return of all the money that has been already paid. In an unlikely circumstance of notifying a fully pre-paid customer with a notice of cancellation within 48 hours of pick-up, we will provide a full refund and cover other foreseeable losses incurred by the customer as a consequence of us breaking the agreement. If we notify a customer who has made a deposit booking up to 7 days before pick-up, the customer will receive a return of all the money already paid. In an unlikely circumstance of notifying a deposit customer with a notice of cancellation within 7 days of the pick-up, we will provide a full refund and cover other foreseeable losses incurred by the customer as a consequence of us breaking the agreement.
