Do I need to insure the vehicle on my own insurance?

Yes, your own comprehensive insurance cover is required as we do not provide cover.

We will require an email from your insurers confirming comprehensive cover is in place on our vehicle for the duration of rental. Cover must also note our interest.  If hire is extended you must again contact your insurers, extend cover and ensure we receive a copy by email.  We hold this on file with the rental agreement.

Is payment required in advance and do you need a deposit?

Yes, all hire is payable in advance.  Deposits are also required.

The minimum deposit required is €300 + vat.

Vehicles hired on a weekly basis will be subject to a deposit of 1 weeks’ hire.

Hires based on a monthly basis will require a deposit of 1 month’s hire.

All deposits are in addition to the hire cost and are required in advance.

Deposits are refundable at the end of hire, once the vehicle is returned in the same condition, and any hire related charges, toll costs etc. have already been settled in full.
