Failure to provide information may invalidate your insurance policy with us and render you liable for all losses however sustained including claims by third parties. You must provide true and accurate information for our insurers as requested on the booking form at the time of booking. This is to ensure that the insurance company can confirm they are willing to insure your chosen driver(s). Failure to provide any information requested may result in us being unable to proceed with your booking and the booking being cancelled as a consequence, our policy on cancellations set out above applies in this instance. The company advises that you take out your own personal effects and travel insurance to cover items not included in the policy as well as last minute cancellations etc.
The company is not responsible for any damage in connection with accident or breakdown caused by you, nor will we be responsible for any loss from the vehicle. The company insurance policy protects us and any persons named on the agreement against legal claims from any other person or for death or personal injury or damage to another persons property caused by the use of the vehicle on the road on condition that you report any incident to us as soon as they occur and the vehicle is being used in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in this agreement and by our insurance company.

Excess – Our insurers may increase the excess payable by you if you are under 25 or over 70, hold a foreign licence, have driving offences on your licence or have criminal convictions. We will inform you before the hire period commences of any increases in the excess the insurance company intends to make. For your information, this excess is usually set between £750 - £1000 depending on age. If an insurance claim is made, you are responsible for a £500 excess (or excess of a greater amount if you are notified before the rental period commences about such change to the excess due) which is due in each and every incident and includes loss or damage to equipment, fixtures and fittings or to third party property. The excess applies in respect of each claim.
