Please note:

  • Make/model of vehicle cannot be guaranteed prior to time of collection.

  • A full valid driver’s licence must be produced when collecting the hire vehicle for each driver wishing to be registered – both the new style photo card and old style paper licences are accepted. Failure to produce a valid driving licence will result in the car rental company denying the collection of the vehicle.
  • From 8th June 2015 the paper counterpart to the photo card driving licence will no longer be valid and will not be issued any longer.
  • The rental company will accept the following licences from UK clients for rentals from that date: Paper driving licences issued before the photo card was introduced in 1998 will remain valid and will be accepted for rental, a passport must be presented to match the paper licence, along with a valid credit card. For licences issued after 1998, the plastic photo card licence must be presented along with a valid credit card.

Credit cards

The lead driver of the vehicle must present a valid credit card in their name, as this will be authorised at the time of collecting the rental vehicle for a security deposit – debit cards are generally not accepted.
