DOES YOUR INSURANCE COVER ALL POSTCODES IN THE UK?
We are in the hands of our insurance providers on this.
Our insurers have to be notified of client postcodes, they then input this data into their system that highlights crime stats for the area.
If an area has a record of substantial vehicle crime, they will not allow the vehicle to be delivered. I.e. they will not provide the cover.
You will be notifed within 3 to 5 working days should our insurers be unable to provide cover. Should our insurance provider refuse cover, you will be issued a full refund immediately.
WHAT CREDIT CARDS DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept all major credit cards including AMEX!
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CHARGES OTHER THAN THE RENTAL FEE?
Simple answer is No. All our quoted prices are inclusive of VAT and insurance. We don’t charge booking fees. The only other charge required is the excess pre-authorisation of £3000 or £5000 depending on your chosen vehicle. This is a temporary hold on a specified amount against the available funds on your payment card. Please note - this is not an actual charged amount and no funds are taken.
WHAT IS AN EXCESS PRE-AUTHORIATSION?
This is a short-term hold of a pre-agreed amount against the available balance on your credit card. Please note - this is not an actual charged amount and no payments are charged.
Your credit card provider may present a pre-authorisation transaction as “pending”.
What are the implications of this?
- Once your reservation has been confirmed and the booking fee has been paid, depending on your preferred method chosen to process the excess pre-authorisation during the booking stages, we will either wait until 24hrs before you start your rental before we call you on the telephone number you provided to process transaction or we will process this in person when you collect your vehicle. We will put a temporary pre-authorisation hold of £3000, £5000 or £12000 depending on your chosen vehicle against the available balance on your payment card. If the booking is less than 24hrs away, this temporary hold will be placed at the time of booking in person.
- When you complete your rental and return the vehicle undamaged, the pre-authorisation funds will be released by your card issuer.
- Depending on your credit card provider, it can sometimes take up to 14 working days before this is reflected back into your credit card’s available balance. This is out of our control.
Please note – even though a pre-authorisation transaction is not a physical charge, it will briefly reduce the available balance on your credit card.
