Overseas drivers with a non-English licence must carry an official accurate English translation or have an International Driving Permit. At the Manager's discretion, a holder of a licence for less than five years is acceptable, but may incur a higher insurance excess.
A 1 day hire is 24 hours from time of pick up. Additional hours are charged at 1/5 of the daily rate up to five hours and a full day thereafter. Campervans and motorhomes duration is a calendar day. Payment is to be made at commencement of hire by cash, travellers' cheques, credit card or debit plus card (please note that a debit plus card cannot be imprinted to cover the insurance excess, you will need a credit card for this).
