You can book a vehicle on our website, using our easy online booking system. The first step is to select the dates and times of pick-up and return and your preferred locations for pick-up and return. After viewing our rates and availability for your desired period and choosing your preferred vehicle, you will be asked to provide your personal details and confirm your booking. As soon as you complete the booking process, you will receive an automated email with the confirmation of your booking (please don’t reply to the automated email, if you would like to contact us you can send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org). You must print the confirmation and present it to our rep during the vehicle pick-up. When you collect the vehicle you will receive a Rental Agreement with your booking details. If there is an availability problem for your selected vehicle, we will contact you as soon as possible by email to suggest amendments and alternative options. If you don’t hear from us, other than the automated confirmation, that means that your booking is accepted and valid as sent.
