Really innovative new app! Loved the ease of booking and being able to collect the Van without seeing anyone....especially useful in these Covid times!

Frequently asked questions

Our renter requirements:

  • 21-70 years of age*
  • holding a UK, EU or EEA driving licence for at least two years
  • having max 25% of points deducted or added on the licence, depending on the country (e.g. UK: no more than 3 points added to the licence; Spain: no more than 3 points deducted from the licence)
  • have had no more than 1 at fault insurance claim in the last 3 years

*for drivers aged 21-24 years, have had 0 (zero) incidents since obtaining the licence

You will pay an insurance fee as a part of the price of renting a vehicle. This will fully insure you to drive the vehicle for the duration of the booking.

The standard excess for any rental booking is £750. This amount will be blocked on your card until the vehicle has been returned and the condition of the vehicle has been checked. When making a booking you have the option to reduce this excess down to £250 for an additional fee.
