Car hire prices

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 (Low Season) to July (High Season) then the applicable price for the whole rental period will be determined by the car pick-up date and low season price will apply. The same principle is valid when crossing from the high season dates to the low season ones.
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Since 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence is no longer valid or  issued by DVLA.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:
