Options for your car rental
If you are travelling with other people you might want to share the driving of your rental vehicle. All our prices are quoted for just one person being the main driver of the vehicle. When booking online you can select from the drop down under ‘Additional Driver’ in the ‘Options’ section up to three additional drivers.
Additional Drivers will cost £10 per day (incl. VAT). Please note that if the additional driver is in a different age bracket to you they may not be able to drive the vehicle you have chosen. You can also add additional drivers when you collect the vehicle and pay directly at the rental location.
Enhanced Collision Damage Waiver (ECDW)
If you are 25 years and over and want to reduce the amount of excess you are liable for should you be in an accident or the vehicle is stolen, you can do so be adding our eCDW as an option to your booking. This will reduce your excess to £250 for car rental and £500 for van rental from the standard £500 on cars and £1,000 on vans.
Children’s car seats
If you are travelling with a child we can offer you a car seat to fit in the vehicle that you have chosen. Some vehicles can only fit up to two car seats, whilst others could have more. It is best to check the vehicle you have chosen first before selecting the car seat option, otherwise we may need to amend the vehicle on collection if it cannot take the number of child seats you have requested.
Please contact your local rental location for availability.
If you are planning to take your rental vehicle abroad there will be an additional fee of £25 per day, up to a maximum of 4 days. Over 4 day bookings will be charged at a flat rate of £100 per booking. This is to cover the cost of the paperwork that we have to provide in order for you to be covered in Europe and also to ensure that we can get yourself and the vehicle back to the UK should anything happen. At this time we can only cover the vehicle if travelling within Europe. We cannot allow our vehicles to be driven anywhere outside of Europe.
All of our retail prices are inclusive of VAT and collision damage waiver (CDW). Our collision damage waiver means that your standard excess will be:
- 18-20 years old - Please contact your local Rent-a-Car location for more details
- 21-24 years old - £650 for cars/ £1,000 for vans
- 25 years plus - £500 for cars/ £1,000 for vans
You can reduce the excess further if you are 25 years or over to £250 for car rental and £500 for van rental by choosing our Enhanced Collision Damage Waiver as an option in the booking process. This will cost an additional £10 a day.
