Things to Know About Car Hire

You need to check the insurances and restriction of each vehicle under as they all vary depending on the vehicle. If you go somewhere not permitted you are not covered for insurance.

If you want to travel on any unsealed roads, you need to make sure that you have selected unsealed roads when hiring your vehicle to ensure the insurance will cover your trip.  

Carefully select and book the dates required as there are no refunds for early returns. People may think that keeping the car for a few extra days will be no problem – however the vehicle may be already booked so you are required to return the vehicle on the required date and time.

If a vehicle is picked up from the airport after hours, please be sure to have contacted the office ot ensure your licence details, booking contract and full payment has already been made.
