Car hire protection

Car hire fuel options

Sometimes it can be difficult to find a fuel station near to your car hire drop off point, so you can fill up the tank before returning your car. Take this worry away by choosing our full tank option. Simply pay for a tank of fuel up front and drop the car off without re-filling at the end of your hire.

Share the drive!

For a safer, more comfortable trip, you can add an additional driver to your car hire booking. Sharing the driving can make long journeys easier and help you to arrive at your destination feeling refreshed.

Sat Nav makes it simple

Hire a Sat Nav GPS system to ensure you don’t have to rely on your smartphone. It can take the stress out of navigation whilst driving, particularly if you're on unfamiliar roads or want to avoid traffic, and will help you to arrive at your destination on time.
