Car hire prices

Our holiday prices to The Caribbean are for the villa rental only, but car hire can be arranged at an extra cost allowing guests to explore and enjoy their holiday to the full with maximum flexibility.

For further information on the types of car available, and any age restrictions, please see the tables and Terms & Conditions below, or speak to one of our experienced Travel Experts.

Our car hire rates are tour operator rates and must be booked pre departure through our UK office; car hire company cardholders are not entitled to a further discount on our prices.
Prices are in £ sterling and are per car per week.
If your rental period crosses a date band, for example from June to July, you will be charged pro rata.
Wherever possible the hire company will endeavour to supply the car that has been requested or provide a similar car from the same group. However, they do reserve the right to provide an alternative car as necessary and if it is of a lower group the appropriate refund will apply.

 Important information- Abolition of Paper Counterpart Driver's license

Since 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence is no longer valid or  issued by DVLA.  Therefore  car hire companies may need you to consent to your licence records being accessed by a one-time use code or print out from ‘Share Driver’s Licence.Please see DVLA website:
