The vehicle will have a full tank of fuel at commencement of the hire, and should be returned to us with a full tank of fuel at the end of the hire. A refuelling charge (in addition to the cost of the fuel required to fill the tank) will apply if the vehicle is not returned with a full tank of fuel. You must make sure that you use the correct fuel, as you are responsible for any resultant damage.

Repairs

You must let us know as soon as you can if you become aware of any fault with the vehicle. Apart from AA roadside assistance you must not let anyone work on the vehicle without our permission. If we give you permission, we will give you a refund if you have a receipt for the work done.

Cancellations

Deposits are non-refundable in the event of the hirer cancelling a vehicle hire reservation. All reservations are subject to availability of the reserved vehicle for the hire duration. In the event that a vehicle is not available (and we are unable to supply an alternative vehicle acceptable to the hirer) or in any other circumstances where we cancel the hire reservation, our liability is limited to the amount of any deposit or other payment already paid, which will be refunded in full.
