All the above cars are insured to carry 5 people, or 7-9 people, where indicated, and are manual transmission, unless otherwise stated. No one particular type of car can be absolutely guaranteed. The cars will be supplied to you AT THE AIRPORT itself , but deliveries and collections can also be arranged at extra charge. Other cars/suppliers may be available on request.

All rates are quoted on a 7 day week and are based on the rate applicable on the first rental day. For other durations, the rates are pro-rata. The minimum hire period is 3 days. Rental days are based on 24 hours, i.e. if you pick the car up at 10.00 am, the car needs to be returned about the same time, or else an extra day’s rental will be charged. Bookings are subject to the contractual terms of the local car hire company, whose name will be on the documents, and contracts are signed locally; you will be subject to its terms and conditions and local law. You will be given details of who to contact locally in the case of any queries.

Rates include:

Unlimited mileage, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), Theft Protection Insurance, all airport charges and taxes. (Arrivals out of office hours may mean a small local charge).

Not included:

Petrol, Personal Accident Insurance (usually covered by your personal travel insurance), tyre, windscreen or window damage, traffic fines and any insurance excess* (this can range from approx 1000 - 2500 euros depending on the type of car). Extra insurance (green card) may be necessary if you intend travelling into Spain.

You will be asked for a credit card on which any deposits (for insurance excess and petrol) may be held; this credit card imprint will then be returned to you on the safe return of the car with the petrol refilled to the level previously supplied. Please note as with all car hire companies you may be asked about extra insurance - this is known as 'super cdw'. This is not compulsory but it would mean you would not pay any insurance excess (see * above) in the event of an accident.  You could cover yourself against paying the insurance excess with damage excess waiver and super damage excess waiver supplements, details on request.

Extras:

Extra drivers after first: Small charge (generally 20 euros per week per extra driver), payable locally.
- ALL DELIVERIES and pick up of cars within city limits and within office hours only, 20-40 euros per service.
- Booster/baby seats: Small charge payable locally (currently 4 euros per day). Baby seats are COMPULSORY for babies up to 3 years, and booster seats are COMPULSORY for those aged up to 12 yrs or under 1.5m tall.
