3
) Insurance Excess/Liability Reduction: Basic daily insurance is included in the daily rental rate. An excess is payable in the event of an accident or damage to the vehicle. This excess amount may be reduced by purchasing an optional Liability Reduction plan (payable direct to the rental company on collection of vehicle). A credit card imprint is taken for the bond on initiation of the hire and destroyed at the termination of the hire provided the vehicle is returned in the same condition it left the depot.
4)
Airport Arrivals/Departures: On arrival guests make their way directly to the rental car counter to check in and collect their vehicle. If an airport counter is not available, alternative instructions will be given in your travel documents. On departure, the vehicle is parked in the rental car allocated parking and keys returned as per instructions in your travel documents.Certain city or ferry locations may charge for drop off outside of regular hours – this will be advised at the time of booking confirmation (and payable directly to the rental company).
5)
Age Requirements: For most categories, drivers must be 25 years of age or older. For some car categories guests aged 21-25 years are able to hire a vehicle but a surcharge will apply.
