Deposit Policy

When you arrive at the rental location, you will be asked to leave a deposit against your rental. The deposit amount will be blocked (not debited) on your payment card at pick-up time or, in case of Online Check-In, it will be blocked within 48 hours prior to pick-up. This amount will be deducted from the authorised expense limit on your payment card.
 
If you have prepaid your rental, the deposit amount is: 300 € (or £250, or equivalent in destination country currency). If you have not already paid for your rental at the time of booking, then the price of the rental will also be authorised on your credit card. In this case, the total amount authorised on your credit card will be Rental price + 300 € (or £250 or equivalent in destination country currency). Deposit will be used for extra charges (e.g. fuel missing at return, extra-day, extra-mileage, one-way charge, etc.)
